How the planning service works Cognizant leverages the Cloud Steps methodology, a structured "factory based" process framework that helps clients migrate their application workloads to a cloud environment. The framework simplifies the complexities of application transformation for Hybrid Cloud, while allowing our customers to accelerate the adoption of cloud services and speed up delivery of business applications safely onto the Cloud environment. The framework allows for the flexibility to integrate with the client’s existing processes and ensures seamless transformation of applications.

How the support service works We provide Cloud Hosting and Software Services in Platform as a Service models. Cognizant can provide a completely built up platform stack with associated support services in a consumption based model with a per unit pricing on a Hybrid Cloud model. The stack can be dedicated to a customer or can be logically shared between customers. We use a variety of private and public cloud models to provide this platform to customers. This model also enables us to support a "pay-for-consumption" model wherein a customer can pay based only on the number of elements supported on an on-going basis. If the number of elements to be supported changes, then the pricing varies accordingly.
