Wipro sets up AWS cloud arm

Wipro has launched a dedicated Wipro AWS Business Group (WABG).

As the name suggests the unit will help customers fast-track their AWS cloudy plans.

WABG will help organisations worldwide drive business acceleration, enhance customer experience, and leverage connected insights. This strategic move reflects the commitment of both Wipro and AWS to foster the success of their shared business as well as their passion to “continually innovate for enterprises” – whatever that means.

The launch was inspired by recent collaborations between Wipro and AWS, including the implementation of cloud solutions for Wabtec, a supplier of critical components, locomotives, services, signaling, and logistics systems and services for the global rail industry. 

The Wipro AWS Business Group will house over 10,000 AWS-certified consultants, along with specialised teams focusing on business development, talent creation, solution development, and delivery execution.

Bhanumurthy B.M, President and Chief Operating Officer, Wipro Limited said: “We are seeing a rapid growth of our AWS business and are now ready to take this collaboration to the next level. Wipro has continuously demonstrated its deep cloud expertise and ‘business first’ thinking in enabling enterprises to become nimble and future-ready.  Wipro AWS Business Group, with the combined strengths of Wipro and AWS under one umbrella, will help reinforce our capabilities and support our clients in their innovation-led cloud journey from strategy to execution.”

Matt Garman, Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Amazon Web Services, said: “This business group will empower clients to rapidly achieve the benefits of moving to AWS, eliminate the undifferentiated heavy lifting of managing their IT infrastructure, and instead focus on their core business.”
