It has also been reported that Wipro would be collaborating with institutions and universities in the North Rhine-Westaphalia state to develop tailored programmes and career opportunities for young graduates in advanced digital skills and technologies.  

Citing data from the European Commission, Wipro said only one out of five companies across the EU is highly digitalised. With addition to this, around 60 per cent of the large industries and over 90 per cent of the small and medium sized enterprises lag in digital innovation. 

German and EU market 

Thierry Delaporte, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, Wipro commented, “We will offer our customers in the German and EU market the ability to leverage our global scale, technical expertise and strategic investments to digitally transform their enterprises.” 

He also added that Wipro’s Digital Innovation Hub would be equipped with state-of-the-art technology-enabled infrastructure with advanced capabilities, a large pool of experience digital professionals and a global delivery model to achieve and scale highly integrated capabilities. 

Multi-year contract with Marelli 

Other than this Wipro has also signed a multi-year global automotive software engineering contract from Marelli. With around 60,000 employees worldwide, Marelli has 170 facilities and R&D centres across Asia, America, Europe and Africa. The company has been generating revenues of 13.4 billion euros in 2019.

Vinay Firake, Senior Vice President at Wipro said, “Wipro is already an IT partner to Marelli, helping the company standardise, simplify and enhance their IT services at a global level. We are glad to be selected as Marelli’s engineering partner.” He also added that with this new engagement, Wipro has gained confidence of driving better business outcomes for automative consumers, OEMs and Marelli group.
