Companies extend decade-long partnership to help customers across industries realize value faster from app and cloud modernization initiatives
PALO ALTO, Calif., NEW YORK, and BANGALORE, India – May 4, 2022 – VMware, Inc. (NYSE: VMW) and Wipro Limited (NYSE: WIT, BSE: 507685, NSE: WIPRO) announced an expanded collaboration that will enable customers to achieve the cloud freedom they desire with the enterprise control they require as they execute their digital strategies. The companies are bringing together the power of VMware Cross-Cloud™ services with industry-leading Wipro FullStride Cloud Services to help global enterprises accelerate app modernization and reduce the cost, complexity, and risk of moving to the cloud.
Multi-cloud architectures can accelerate service delivery and give lines of business and IT the flexibility to innovate using the best services from different cloud providers, without lock-in. Multi-cloud also comes with inherent complexity that can slow down application development, increase management costs, create networking and security blind spots, and produce sub-par user experiences.
VMware and Wipro are collaborating to help eliminate the complexity and risk inherent in customers’ multi-cloud initiatives. Wipro will offer a full portfolio of digital transformation services that includes VMware Cross-Cloud services across the Americas, Europe, Middle East, Africa, and Asia Pacific.
“Digital transformation and multi-cloud are inseparable concepts, requiring that industry leaders such as VMware and Wipro bring together our collective strengths to help make multi-cloud as easy to adopt and manage as possible,” said Zia Yusuf, senior vice president, strategic ecosystem and industry solutions, VMware. “Together, VMware and Wipro are providing enterprises the solutions and services they need to harness the power of multi-cloud to achieve value from technology investments faster, compete more effectively, and operate their businesses more efficiently and securely.”
“The innovative solutions we have created with VMware enable enterprises to accelerate the development and deployment of modern apps while dramatically simplifying the management of a multi-cloud infrastructure,” said Jason Eichenholz, Senior Vice President, Global Head of Ecosystems & Partnerships, Wipro Limited. “This strategic partnership will help customers accelerate innovation and drive agility and scale, which makes it an exciting proposition for leading enterprises.”
