East Brunswick, New Jersey, USA and Bangalore, India - May 5, 2016:
Wipro Limited (NYSE:WIT, BSE: 507685, NSE: WIPRO), a leading global information technology, consulting and business process services company, today announced that it has successfully implemented its Software as a Service (SaaS) platform- Managed File Transfer as a Service (MFTaaS) on Amazon Web Services (AWS) for organizations, thereby helping them integrate digitally with their clients, partners and employees.
Affinia Group, an innovative global leader in the design, manufacture, distribution and marketing of industrial grade products and services is one of the clients for MFTaaS.
Prakash Matada, Vice President - IT Applications, Affinia said, "A lot of our internal business processes like invoices, bank statements etc. involve file transfers; and earlier legacy technology was not agile to support new requirements. Wipro's cloud-based MFTaaS platform was a great choice. The solution is built on a ready-to-deploy AWS cloud platform and uses a multi-tenant architecture. It is agile, secure and the best part is that we don't have to make any additional investments in product or support."
Today, Wipro's MFTaaS platform handles millions of file transfers across a portfolio of global clients and is one of Wipro's most successful enterprise SaaS Platforms. Wipro anticipates that the MFTaaS platform can potentially reduce up to 30 percent in TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) for its clients vis-a-vis traditional deployments.
"Our commitment to invest in next-generation cloud technologies, co-innovate with companies like AWS and create platforms which can deliver the promise of cloud are key business priorities. Working with AWS as an active member of the AWS Partner Network (APN) helps us to simplify the client’s move to cloud and offer unparalleled value in terms of security, compliance, agility, and scalability," said Bhanumurthy B.M, President and Chief Operating Officer, Wipro Limited.
"Wipro's Managed File Transfer platform is a good example of an APN Partner creating a unique and innovative proposition to solve customers' business challenges by leveraging the power of cloud and the rapid pace of innovation at AWS. We are excited to work with Wipro to help clients gain the true benefit of the cloud," said Terry Wise, Vice President of Worldwide Partner Ecosystem, Amazon Web Services, Inc. "At AWS, we rely on our APN partners like Wipro to create solutions and platforms deployed on AWS that help customers solve key business problems."
Wipro's AWS practice helps global clients seamlessly adopt cloud technologies, develop cloud native apps and provide expertise in cloud migration. Wipro has been a Premier Consulting Partner in the APN for four consecutive years. Wipro was also recognized with the "Think Big" award at the AWS re:Invent 2015 conference, a testimony to the enormous business value and innovation that the partnership has been delivering to clients across the globe.
