SAN FRANCISCO, May 23, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- WalkMe Ltd. (NASDAQ: WKME), a leading provider of digital adoption solutions for effectively navigating technology change, today announced key momentum in their partner ecosystem with the introduction of new partnerships with Cognizant and UST.

These strategic alliances were formed to help joint customers tackle the challenge of effectively adopting and scaling the latest technologies, particularly in light of the generative AI revolution. As the surge of AI-powered applications brings immense potential for productivity and innovation, it also introduces new complexities in change management and digital adoption. WalkMe's partnerships with industry leaders Cognizant and UST position the Company at the forefront of helping organizations navigate this transformative landscape.

Cognizant stands out in the global marketplace with its comprehensive suite of solutions that blend deep cross-industry experience with robust enterprise application expertise. Cognizant’s consulting and advisory services are tailored to help clients accelerate business transformation, ensuring that partners like WalkMe can navigate complexities with ease. WalkMe can leverage Cognizant’s extensive certified training resources and innovative methodologies to enhance their digital adoption platform, supporting mutual clients’ efforts to drive growth and improve user productivity and adoption.

With Cognizant's global scale and rich pool of diverse talent, including thought leaders and industry experts, this strategic collaboration with WalkMe has the potential to deliver multiple benefits for clients, including accelerated cloud adoption, enhanced competitive edge, and a seamless integration of technology that simplifies and enriches the user experience.  

“Cognizant’s end-to-end capabilities to implement process, transformation, and technology modernization programs place strong emphasis on human-centered change,” says Michael Valocchi, SVP and head of Cognizant Consulting Americas. “Cognizant and WalkMe together can deliver faster training results, increased adoption of new processes and technology and unlock the powerful impact of DAPs on the enterprise software ecosystem.”

UST's open innovation collaboration program, UST Spark, builds strategic partnerships and explores technological synergies to address its client’s current and future business challenges through impactful technology solutions. UST Spark selected WalkMe as a partner, due to its close alignment with UST’s core operations and expertise.

WalkMe is particularly excited to partner with UST in these regions to bring best-in-class, AI-powered digital adoption to this new market.

WalkMe helps UST´s strategy to prioritize simplification and user-centricity, which are crucial elements in successful digital transformations.”

“Our partnerships with Cognizant and UST come at a very opportune time, amid the surge in generative AI applications and the ensuing rush to reap the benefits of this transformative technology,” said Travis Dion, global vice president, Channel & Alliance Leader, WalkMe. “Fully harnessing these new AI capabilities requires people to actually use these technologies and we’ve been solving that problem for over a decade.
