Information technology (IT) services firm Wipro has launched a solution to provide large enterprise customers an end-to-end integrated ecosystem to drive modern application development.

The Bengaluru-based company’s BoundaryLess Enterprise (BLE) solution is based on cloud computing and virtualisation firm VMware’s Tanzu product portfolio, as per a statement. The Tanzu platform helps enterprises build open-source Kubernetes-based solutions that automate application deployment, scaling and management.

The country’s fourth largest software exporter is also a design partner for the Tanzu portfolio, which consists of products such as Tanzu Mission Control, Tanzu Service Mesh and vSphere 7 with Kubernetes, all of which help the software to perform faster.

“‘BLE is a new paradigm that will help enterprises power their digital transformation. This solution will enable enterprises to accelerate the development and deployment of modern apps and will simplify management of a hybrid/multi-cloud multi-cluster Kubernetes-based infrastructure, helping customers reduce time to market and drive agility and scale,” Milind Halapeth, vice president of cloud and infrastructure services at Wipro, said.  

Large enterprises want to leverage Kubernetes to increase developer velocity by providing them with containers, microservices and application programme interface (API), Wipro said. These features assist developers to build applications and operate infrastructure with consistency across clouds, it added.

“Our customers are adopting Kubernetes, and offerings like Wipro’s BLE can simplify and accelerate the use of Kubernetes to build modern applications,” Teri Bruns, vice president of Tanzu partner ecosystem at VMware, said.  

Additionally, BLE improves container security by leveraging the customer’s hybrid or multi-cloud application modernisation journey, the statement said. These features will enable distributed applications running on-premises and on cloud, supporting use cases such as bursting and disaster recovery, Wipro added.

A day ago, Wipro announced the expansion of its partnership with Amazon Web Services to provide DevOps capabilities and help enterprises leverage automation, implement effective monitoring systems and deploy rapid software updates. 

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.

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.
