The engagement will bring SAP applications and workloads to the cloud to support Wipro’s 180,000 employees.

Transforming to an Intelligent Enterprise with SAP S/4HANA and Google Cloud

Transforming the employee experience with G Suite
Wipro will roll out G Suite for some of their employees as a workplace productivity platform. Factors that led the company to integrate the intuitive, cloud-native solution included G Suite’s strong interoperability and security controls, and features that enable real-time collaboration even in remote-work environments.
Extending a long-term relationship
Wipro and Google Cloud also have a strong track record of success working together to help enterprises achieve greater operational efficiency, innovation, and risk mitigation along their cloud journey. Wipro’s industry-focused solutions, with Google Cloud technologies embedded at their core, enable enterprises to future-proof their IT investments.
