Sanjay Patel, Takeda Global Head of DD&T Innovation Capability Solutions, expressed the significance of Cognizant’s support in complementing Takeda’s ongoing innovation and digital growth. “This continued relationship will enable Takeda to accelerate our digital transformation journey, modernize our operational model, and speed time to market.”

Cognizant will play a pivotal role in assisting Takeda in delivering digital capabilities as a service to the organization. This involves identifying and recruiting key talent to support Takeda’s data, digital, and technology ambitions.

The partnership goes beyond mere transformation of infrastructure and application management approaches; Cognizant will employ a unique “build, operate, transform, and transfer” (BOTT) model. Under this framework, Cognizant will establish the team, initiate operations, automate functions, and ultimately transfer the operations to Takeda.

Surya Gummadi, Executive Vice President and President of Cognizant Americas, highlighted the collaboration’s potential impact on Takeda’s vision to become one of the most trusted, science-driven, digital biopharmaceutical companies.
