Wipro Bags Multi-Year Global Automotive Software Engineering Deal from Marelli
Indian technology giant, Wipro Limited (NYSE: WIT, BSE: 507685, NSE: WIPRO), announces its entry into a multi-year global agreement with Marelli for automotive engineering services. A Japanese multinational, Marelli is one of the world’s leading global independent suppliers to the automotive sector with operational headquarters in Saitama, Japan and Corbetta, Italy.
The new engagement will help Wipro to leverage its EngineeringNXT framework and automotive engineering expertise to establish a software engineering factory for Marelli, in addition to assisting the Japanese multinational in improving their operational efficiency and expediting the launch of cutting-edge technologies on connectivity and sustainable mobility solutions.
In a statement, Satish Yadavalli, Vice President, Cloud and Infrastructure Services, Wipro Limited said, “The collaboration is a testament of our strength and our joint resolve to enhance the value we can create for our customers. We intend to bring together our strong complementary capabilities on remote working tools & platforms, desktop & application integration and managed services, to help mitigate the impact of the pandemic. Wipro is a leader in workplace management services and Intel in client computing solutions. Together, we can equip enterprises to enhance employee experiences and connectivity to help achieve strategic business outcomes.”
“Our partnership with Wipro has been strong and we applaud Wipro’s laser focus on driving customer value. The Intel® vPro® platform is built for business, and Wipro’s digital workspace solution is perfect for customers adapting to the new normal of remote workplace management. Together we are delivering on a vision for seamless productivity and collaboration, so people can contribute at the highest level regardless of where they are.” said Stephanie Hallford, Intel Vice President of the Client Computing Group and General Manager of Business Client Platforms.
With the new agreement, Wipro continues its busy business activities in the quarter. In the first week of August, the company had joined forces with Intel to enable its LIVE Workspace™ solution with Intel’s vPro® platform. The company was also recognized as the winner of Data Estate Modernization 2020 Microsoft Partner of the Year last month, followed by its collaboration with Uniper, a German energy company, to deploy a blockchain-based small-scale liquefied natural gas (ssLNG) trading/fulfilment platform. The company signed off from the month with another partnership – with Standard Initial Margin Model (SIMM) vendor, Quaternion.
