Event Management


Cognizant’s Event Management application provides best-in-class technology to manage and control an entire event life-cycle, modernizing the traditional processes associated with event management. It supports from start to finish the critical processes that enable users to manage an event in an integrated fashion, including event descriptions, agenda and host details, logistics management, and registration details and processes.  The application supports self-registration for attendees, including validation and approvals. The event dashboard provides all event-related information, including the agenda, host details, presenter details, logistics, floor plan, and attendee details. The application engages with attendees onsite, enabling attendees to provide real-time feedback (ratings) on sessions as well as to upload pictures, videos, presentations, and other materials. This feedback and ratings capture provides critical data for analytical reports and intuitive dashboards that enables a post-event evaluation to be completed in rapid fashion.

Each use case employs the key Appian features of BPM, data centric design, collaboration, mobility, business activity monitoring (BAM), report dashboards and more. A valid and comprehensively-determined ROI is a key factor in decision-making for event programming and development and Cognizant’s comprehensive event management application delivers it immediately. This application enables event managers to eliminate point solutions and manual processes, and embrace the power of Appian.
