Wipro and IBM are collaborating on a new set of industry solutions to be built on IBM Cloud that will help clients migrate, manage and transform critical workloads across hybrid cloud environments. 


Wipro's IBM Hybrid Cloud Practice unit will help customers innovate at scale by leveraging industry-ready Wipro solutions such as BoundaryLess Enterprise (BLE) and ModernizR. These solutions were built with IBM Cloud Paks on Red Hat OpenShift and can run in any cloud environment, including the IBM public cloud.

BoundaryLess Enterprise (BLE) is a hybrid cloud management platform that offers a comprehensive array of technologies in a single environment that enables customers to run their cloud-native applications from anywhere. 


ModernizR is a software-based solution built with IBM Cloud Pak for Applications, a key technology in Wipro's cloud migration and operations portfolio. The solution is designed to help enterprises move their legacy applications to the cloud by leveraging artificial intelligence to mine and analyze customers' legacy applications and data. 

Wipro Limited's president and CEOBhanumurthy B.M, said of the expanded focus with IBM on hybrid architectures, "We believe the future will be driven by hybrid cloud hence; the expansion of IBM Hybrid cloud practice is intrinsic to our strategy. It will strengthen our relationship with IBM and help accelerate our clients' transformation journey across hybrid cloud environments."

For his part, IBM senior vice president Bob Lord said, "The expansion of our relationship with Wipro reinforces our joint commitment to help clients accelerate their journey to the cloud across industries, including highly regulated sectors such as financial services, energy and utilities, manufacturing and healthcare. Wipro's industry knowledge, combined with IBM's hybrid cloud and AI platform powered by Red Hat OpenShift, can help enterprises drive real business transformation by migrating and managing their critical workloads across an open hybrid cloud environment."
