Cognizant is the one to watch as it becomes Equaterra's clear leader

I blogged back in May that Cognizant was a company to watch. After blogging about the achievements of HCL, readers wrote to me to tell me that Cognizant is blazing a trail.

Equaterra has now ranked it as the number one supplier in Europe in its 2009-10 Europe IT Outsourcing Service Provider Performance and Satisfaction (SPPS) study.

25 service providers were ranked based on an assessment of over 2,000 deals and feedback from over 750 of the top IT spending organisations across 12 countries in Europe

The categories the service providers were measured on include relationship management  innovation, transition, quality, price, and risk.

In the last study released in December Cognizant shared top spot with Capgemini.

I am going to meet the UK managing director on Monday so I thought I would do a quick blog and hopefully get some feedback.  

For its second quarter of 2010 the company has just announced a 15% increase in sales compared to the previous year with profits climbing to $172.2m compared to $141.3m in the same period last year.
