Wipro has continuously demonstrated its deep cloud expertise and ‘business first’ thinking in enabling enterprises to become nimble and future-ready. Wipro AWS Business Group, with the combined strengths of Wipro and AWS under one umbrella, will help reinforce our capabilities and support our clients in their innovation-led cloud journey from strategy to execution.”

Wipro and AWS continue to invest in building innovative solutions across industries and key technology areas like migration, modernization, data freedom, and Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning (AI/ML) to help clients reimagine their cloud journey. Additionally, customers can leverage the Wipro AWS Launch Pad to facilitate their business transformation programs.

“By establishing the Wipro AWS Business Group, we are taking an important step forward in the long-standing relationship between the two companies," said Matt Garman, Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Amazon Web Services, Inc. "This business group will empower clients to rapidly achieve the benefits of moving to AWS, eliminate the undifferentiated heavy lifting of managing their IT infrastructure, and instead focus on their core business,” he added.
