Tin Roof acquisition boosts Cognizant’s software engineering capabilities

Tech Intelligence Bulletin (HG Insights) – Cognizant has completed the acquisition of Tin Roof Software, expanding Cognizant’s software product engineering footprint in the US and connecting Tin Roof’s experts with Cognizant’s broader global software development capabilities.

Tin Roof offers software design, development, DevOps, and delivery services for clients increasingly dependent on software for a competitive edge. Custom solutions for Fortune 500 clients and others include re-architecting and migrating products to the cloud, building customer-facing web and mobile apps, creating APIs and data pipelines for transaction processing, and designing secure payment processing systems. Tin Roof works across a range of industries, including telecom, media and entertainment, financial services, retail, hospitality, consumer products, travel, logistics, and transportation.

“Investing to compete and win in digital engineering”

“To compete effectively, clients are replacing traditional application development with digital engineering to build leading-edge, consumer-grade experiences and infuse software into their products, services, and customer experiences,” said Malcolm Frank, President, Digital Business, Cognizant, speaking last month when the acquisition was first announced. “Cognizant is investing to compete and win in digital engineering, one of our strategic priorities. Tin Roof’s exceptional software product development and agile teams share our philosophy of ‘customer centricity’ and will strengthen our network of engineering talent in the US. We look forward to welcoming Tin Roof’s software product engineering experts to Cognizant.”

Tin Roof has operations in Atlanta and Dallas-Fort Worth and its experts will join Cognizant Softvision. In 2018, Cognizant acquired Austin, Texas-based Softvision, a leader in developing custom digital products using unique collaborative engineering methods. Cognizant Softvision has significant global presence, with studios in Argentina, Australia, Canada, India, Mexico, Romania, and the US.

“Tangible business outcomes”

“Delivering strategic, innovative solutions that drive tangible business outcomes is at the heart of our success,” said Daniel Gore, President and Chief Executive Officer, Tin Roof Software, speaking when the acquisition was first announced last month. “We look forward to our software product engineering experts joining Cognizant Softvision and connecting to Cognizant’s global delivery model, complementing Cognizant’s deep expertise in artificial intelligence, data, Internet of Things, cloud, and interactive experience.”
