Cognizant’s Legendary CEO on Software Intelligence


Francisco D’Souza spoke at the Software Intelligence Forum 2020 in Paris as the vice chairman of the board of Cognizant. As CEO, he oversaw unprecedented and unmatched growth at Cognizant from 2007 to 2018.

During the latter half of that journey, Frank decided to invest in Software Intelligence with CAST. He talks about how he saw CAST as part of the industrialization engine that would make Cognizant go beyond human-only capabilities. Frank also explains the use of CAST as a differentiator that would enable new pricing models and improve the top line.

When asked about the future, Frank describes how software will transition from development to assembly and the importance of having something like CAST to assure resiliency, efficiency and security of resulting systems.
