Information technology (IT) services company Wipro has inked a strategic partnership with German software firm SNP Schneider-Neureither & Partner SE to build digital transformation solutions for its customers.
As part of the partnership, Wipro will leverage SNP’s CrystalBridge data transformation platform and Bluefield approach to enable flexible, fast and secure migration to SAP S/4HANA, according to a statement.
CrystalBridge allows enterprises to evaluate and simulate the optimal transformation path through predefined scenarios, which helps them reduce efforts and increase the predictability of outcomes. S/4HANA is the enterprise resource planning (ERP) platform of segment market leader SAP.
“We have been working closely with Wipro for over three years and have successfully implemented several complex transformation projects in various industries across continents. With this strategic partnership, we are consolidating our trust and collaborative efforts to ensure agile and secure transformation projects,” Michael Eberhardt, chief operating officer, SNP Schneider-Neureither & Partner SE said.
Under the agreement, the companies will build a ‘transformation competence center’ that will train and certify Wipro consultants to use the Bluefield transformation approach, powered by CrystalBridge.
“Wipro’s customers have been benefitting from the combined synergies of SNP and Wipro, and this partnership brings an unassailable advantage to them at a time when responsiveness and real-time decision making are critical for businesses. Our investment in the ‘Transformation Competence Center’ reinforces our commitment to the success of our customers and the relationship we have with SNP,” Harish Dwarkanhalli, president, cloud enterprise platforms (CEP), Wipro said.
Last week, Wipro initiated a major rejig of its service lines and markets to remodel to a new operating structure to get closer to its global customers. The Bengaluru headquartered company said it will replace the current structure of seven strategic business units, service lines and nine geographies with four strategic market units (SMU) and two global business lines (GBL).
In September, Wipro said it is setting up a digital innovation hub in Düsseldorf, Germany which will serve as its flagship centre in Europe. The centre will offer digital transformation expertise to companies in Germany.
