100 new jobs as Cognizant Collaboratory brings IoT, AI to life

21 Feb 2017

Cognizant expects to add more than 100 new jobs in Melbourne over the next three years, following the opening of its new Digital Business Collaboratory yesterday.

The Collaboratory provides a dedicated space where technology, managed innovation processes and a team of experts can work with clients to design, prototype and build new solutions. A showcase of new technologies in action, a fabrication space for prototyping, tools for ‘making’ and collaboration and configurable work spaces for innovation are all included.

John Burgin, Cognizant Asia Pacific and Middle East head of digital business, says: “We’ve learned that success in the digital economy means balancing new technologies with a deep understanding of human wants and needs.”

He says the Collaboratory ‘will bring the internet of things to life and apply artificial intelligence to deliver brand new experiences for people’.

“The Collaboratory integrates these elements in a practical creative space that will help our clients and partners innovate securely and quickly.”

Peter Dalidakis, Government of Victoria Minister for Small Business, Innovation and Trade, dubbed the opening ‘a huge vote of confidence’ for Victoria’s local tech sector and its growing talent pool.

“To have another world leading digital company choose Melbourne as its operational base for Australia cements our reputation as a magnet for tech and business investment,” Dalidakis says.
