“This engagement is crucial to our efforts to execute better on our promise of being an efficient, low-cost retailer,” said Vikas Wali, divisional vice president of IT Application and Infrastructure Services at Family Dollar.
As part of the three-year deal, Cognizant will deploy Cloud360 for its portal applications to improve operational performance and cost competitiveness at more than 8,000 stores in 46 states in the U.S.
Cloud360, a cloud management platform developed on Amazon Web Services (AWS), will provide an on-demand service experience and single management console to optimize cloud operations.
Cognizant is delivering the services using a consumption-based managed services model to enable Family Dollar to optimize infrastructure investments and achieve a variable cost mix by paying only for usage.
The IT services company said Family Dollar’s portal applications will enable Family Dollar to sharpen its business focus, boost metrics-driven service delivery, and support compliance needs.
Cognizant is already supporting Family Dollar for its store operations, supply chain, merchandizing, and back office.
