Our Innovation approach is designed to solve real, specific problems and address tangible opportunities to create value for our client’s businesses. We innovate with a laser sharp focus on relevant solutions to help our clients deliver at hyper-speed and global scale. Our innovation process cuts across functional boundaries and includes stakeholders across business and technology.
Our incubation and R&D programs have created a rich culture with a growing inventory of 1,600+ Wipro patents which are deployed into client solutions. We incubate and translate interesting ideas to scalable and commercialized products, solutions and capabilities through our unique ‘Horizon program’. Wipro Holmes, our AI platform, is at work on automating complex business and IT processes in multiple industries. We have invested deeply to support our clients’ innovation needs in many game-changing ways. Wipro Ventures, a $100 million fund, works with start-ups in bleeding edge technology areas to bring cutting edge solutions to our clients. Our Innovation Centers and Digital Pods across the globe are unique spaces for co-innovation & co-creation which brings together ideas, technologies and agile teams. We crowdsource the power of over a million minds through Topcoder, our crowdsourcing platform.
Our Open Innovation approach lets us reach well beyond the potential of our own intellectual property. We invest in and collaborate with technology start-ups, academia, expert networks and innovation accelerators to bring the best ideas to work on your opportunities. Our research programs with Tel Aviv University and strategic investments in start-ups are great examples of realizing our Open Innovation approach for our clients in the disruptive world.
