Indian IT services firm Wipro has signed a five year IT and business transformation deal with Aeroports de Montreal (ADM), the company that operates YUL Montreal-Trudeau International Airport and YMX International Aerocity of Mirabel, a filing with the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) showed.

The partnership is expected to help transform ADM's airport operations in user experience, accelerating business processes via Wipro's HOLMES artificial intelligence (AI) platform and other technologies like cloud, internet of things (IoT), augmented reality (AR), analytics and drones, Wipro said in the filing.

“Our digital capabilities and extensive experience in working with some of the biggest airports in the world positions us well for this engagement. This partnership is a testament to the value we bring to the airports industry and our growing footprint in Canada, a strategic market for us," NS Bala, president of energy, natural resources, utilities & construction strategic business unit at Wipro, said.

Wipro began its operations in Canada in 1996, and currently has operations in Toronto, Ottawa, Edmonton, Calgary and Montreal. Wipro works with leading companies in Canada across banking, airports, utilities and oil & gas sectors.

The Bengaluru-based IT services firm also said that it will also deliver ready-to-deploy digital assets in a more efficient framework allowing ADM to implement them faster and see quicker results.

"YUL is experiencing strong and sustained growth in passenger traffic. In that context, technology will be used as a key enabler in improving operational efficiency and passenger experience. The digital evolution that will take place in collaboration with Wipro will allow us to offer services that are even more effective in meeting the needs of travellers," Ginette Maille, vice presiden of Finance and administration at ADM, said.

In June, Wipro had partnered with San Francisco-based AI operations specialist Moogsoft to deliver better digital transformation services. It said AI and automation platform HOLMES, in partnership with Moogsoft, will provide end-to-end capabilities in AIOps transformation. 

In March, the IT services firm had made its AI and automation solutions including HOLMES available on AWS.
