Move will help Wipro customers modernise operations across hybrid cloud environments

Wipro Limited has announced its intention to expand its IBM Hybrid Cloud Practice.

Supported by technical experts from both organisations, the practice is expected to help Wipro customers modernise their digital operations across hybrid cloud environments by leveraging IBM Cloud Paks, containerised software running on Red Hat OpenShift, the company said in a regulatory filing to exchanges.

Wipro’s IBM Hybrid Cloud Practice unit will help customers innovate at scale by leveraging industry-ready Wipro solutions such as BoundaryLess Enterprise (BLE) and ModernizR. Both of these solutions were built with IBM Cloud Paks on Red Hat OpenShift and can run in any cloud environment, including the IBM public cloud.
