Wipro clicks Google Cloud for firm-wide SAP

Wipro has selected Google Cloud to bring SAP applications and workloads to the cloud to support Wipro’s more than 180,000 employees. 

Wipro will modernise and transform its core ERP system to SAP’s flagship S/4HANA and migrate the SAP workloads onto Google Cloud Platform (GCP). They will leverage the advanced intelligent ERP from SAP, along with the flexibility and scalability of GCP, for hosting SAP Workloads. 

“As a provider of digital transformation services to some of the world’s most impactful businesses, it is critical that our own core systems and technologies are running on intelligent and modern platforms that encompass the needs of the future,” said Bhanumurthy B.M, president and COO of Wipro. “This transformation program will help us to run our most business-critical workloads and applications with speed and agility, and to support our customers more effectively.” 

Google Cloud CEO Thomas Kurian said that by modernising their core systems and technologies with Google Cloud, Wipro has a powerful and scalable foundation to accelerate their strategic enterprise priorities and build for the future. 

Also, Wipro will roll out G Suite for some of its employees as a workplace productivity platform. Factors that led the company to integrate the intuitive, cloud-native solution included G Suite’s strong interoperability and security controls, and features that enable real-time collaboration even in remote-work environments. 

Wipro’s industry-focused solutions, with Google Cloud technologies embedded at their core, enable enterprises to future-proof their IT investments. Wipro’s dedicated Google Cloud practice also powers business and technology transformation for joint enterprise customers.

This includes differentiated services like application modernisation, data analytics, artificial intelligence, SAP workload migration, and industrialised cloud migrations at scale.

Wipro has also integrated Anthos, Google’s open platform for managing applications in a multi-cloud world, into its services offerings to enable hybrid cloud deployments for customers.
