The expanded partnership will help unlock new value within enterprises and transform how large-scale businesses operate, said the company. As part of the partnership expansion, Wipro will also train 20,000 associates on Google Cloud’s generative AI technologies to help clients realize the full potential of AI and drive secure, AI-led transformations at scale.
