Wipro, with its traditional infrastructure strength, has identified cloud as key growth driver. Consequently, the practice has high focus from executive leadership and was set up as an integrated business unit with its own P&L in 2017 with teams for sales, presales, solution architecture and alliances.
It has also developed a comprehensive set of proprietary tools to support the cloud lifecycle of customers. These tools are vendor-agnostic across most major platforms. For instance, BLDC offers a single pane of glass for hybrid cloud services across AWS, Azure, GCP, Oracle and other private clouds, while the Cloud Migration Studio, co-developed with AWS and Azure, provides the capability to plug and play automated migration platforms and ready to leverage certified resources and consulting advisors.
Wipro focuses on scale and follows a “Cloud First and Cloud Fast” approach leveraging cloud bots, mass migration through migration factory, prebuilt application blueprints, industrialized reference architectures and cloud native application development and integration.
Wipro’s alliance team aims to become a top 3 partner for the top 3 cloud providers. It is on its way with high engagement in joint development programs such as Project Slingshot (AWS), Big Bet (Microsoft) and Project Marvel (GCP), and very large certification and skill development programs.
Apart from the CSPs, it has also built strong partnerships with the wider ecosystem partners, especially on the cloud orchestration side. Thus, it is amongst the leading partners for Pivotal, VMware and HPE with multiple joint offering development and go-to-market activities.
Wipro has targeted aggressive and time-bound goals for all its partnerships and this is driving it to a very engaged partner ecosystem.
