OREANDA-NEWS. February 19, 2016. Cognizant topped Everest Group’s ranking of Top 10 IT Service Providers of the Year 2015.

In the ranking, companies were evaluated on 26 different categories such as key business lines, geographies and technology. For each of the 26, Everest Group ranked service providers on a scale from “aspirants” to “leaders”. These individual category scores were then weighted and consolidated into an overall score.

This year, Everest changed its scoring methodology to increase the emphasis placed on innovation, intellectual property and emerging technology capabilities. The ranking also relied on market success measures such as revenue growth, deals won and renewed, and margins generated.
