Information technology (IT) services firm Wipro has expanded its partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to provide DevOps capabilities and help enterprises leverage automation, implement effective monitoring systems and deploy rapid software updates.

DevOps merges software development with IT operations to enable shorter software update cycles. 

The companies look to deploy DevOps using Wipro’s Digital Rig to drive agile development and support new ways of remote working in the Covid-19 era, as per a statement. Digital Rig is the Bengaluru-based IT services major’s key offering for end-to-end DevSecOps, which accelerates digital innovation and delivery through self-service, while complying with governance principles. 

Seattle, Washington-based AWS is currently the largest cloud provider and is a division of ecommerce giant Amazon.

The DevOps solution will be delivered from the Wipro AWS Launch Pad division and aligned with the company’s agile approach leveraging AWS Cloud, as per the statement.

“We have added value to our joint customers by delivering DevOps solutions with agility and speed. The AWS DevOps distinction awarded to Wipro reaffirms the pace of innovation that AWS provides,” Manish Govil, general manager and global head for AWS practice at Wipro, said.  

According to Wipro, organisations can benefit from its established methodologies and frameworks, while catering to DevOps engagement lifecycle. The company recently attained the AWS DevOps competency status, which distinguishes it as a specialist with technical proficiency and proven customer success in delivering DevOps processes, methodologies and tools.

Earlier this week, Wipro partnered with technology giant IBM to help its enterprise customers accelerate their hybrid cloud journey by building solutions that will leverage cloud, artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) and the internet of things (IoT) technology platforms, for enterprises, developers and startups.

Around the same time, AWS signed a multi-year agreement with business communications platform Slack to migrate its video and audio calling capabilities to communications system Amazon Chime, as it entered the fray in a space currently led by companies such as Zoom, Microsoft and Cisco.

Last week, Wipro said in a disclosure to market regulators that its former CEO Abidali Neemuchwala’s salary rose 12% to nearly Rs 31 crore for the financial year 2019-2020, even as founder Azim Premji and chairman Rishad Premji gave up profit-linked commissions for the year.

Late last month, Wipro appointed Capgemini veteran Thierry Delaporte as CEO and managing director, the first foreign-origin CEO at a top tier Indian IT services firm.
