Bengaluru based information technology (IT) services major Wipro Limited has selected Google Cloud for its enterprise-wide SAP solutions portfolio. 

With the onboarding, SAP applications and its workloads will now be moved to the Google cloud where it is estimated to support Wipro’s 1.8 lakh employees.

Wipro said that the partnership will modernize its core ERP (enterprise resource planning) system to SAP’s flagship S/4 HANA and will migrate the SAP workloads onto Google Cloud Platform (GCP). Wipro will benefit from the SAPs ERP while at the same time having the flexibility and the scalability provided by GCP.

“It is critical that our own core systems and technologies are running on intelligent and modern platforms that encompass the needs of the future,” Bhanumurthy B.M, President and Chief Operating Officer, Wipro Limited said in a statement.

In addition to the GCP migration, Wipro will also roll out G Suite for some of its employees in order to realise better interoperability and security controls, along with better real-time collaboration in remote-work environments.

Wipro added that the dedicated Google Cloud practice would help power business and technology transformation for joint enterprise customers, which includes services such as application modernization, data analytics, artificial intelligence, SAP workload migration as well as industrialised large scale cloud migrations.

Additionally, Wipro has also integrated Anthos, which is Google’s open platform for managing applications in a multi-cloud scenario. This would enable the IT major to provide hybrid cloud deployments for its customers.
