Together with Google Cloud, Wipro will build and deploy new generative AI solutions to help enterprises tackle unique industry challenges while also improving common enterprise functions such as consumer experiences, marketing, supply chain performance, financial modeling, workforce management, and sustainability.
As part of the partnership, Wipro will build generative AI as a core solution within its extensive set of consulting services, which include digital marketing, customer experience, design thinking, and financial services, as well as within its global innovation labs (Lab45). Additionally, Wipro will leverage its crowdsourcing platform, Topcoder, to build and scale solutions that address client challenges.
Wipro’s AI Centers of Excellence in Bangalore, London, New Jersey, Dallas, and Mountain View will be open to clients looking to explore use cases for generative AI and develop individualized generative AI strategies. Generative AI will also become a core technology within the Wipro FullStride Cloud Studio, helping accelerate cloud strategy and adoption and further advancing Wipro’s support for the Google Cloud Rapid Migration Program (RaMP).
