New York, USA and Bangalore, India – April 19, 2021: Wipro Limited (NYSE: WIT, BSE: 507685, NSE: WIPRO), a leading global information technology, consulting and business process services company, today announced that it has been positioned as a 'Leader' in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Managed Workplace Services (MWS) reports, both in North America and Europe.
A total of 19 software vendors in the Magic Quadrant for Managed Workplace Services, Europe and 20 in the Magic Quadrant for Managed Workplace Services, North America were evaluated based on their visions, market understanding and strategy, innovation, and execution capabilities. Wipro has been positioned as a Leader in Europe for the second time and North America for the fourth consecutive year.
According to both the reports, “Leaders deliver their service solutions skillfully, have a clear vision of the direction of the service market, and are actively building and improving their competencies to sustain their leadership positions. The Leaders quadrant indicates the direction of the MWS market. However, most digital workplace offerings still have low adoption rates. Leaders have demonstrated their experience in delivering MWS and understand the requirements to successfully deliver these services. They have proved their Ability to Execute and their Completeness of Vision”
Kiran Desai, Senior Vice President and Global Head, Global Infrastructure Services, Wipro Limited said, "It is exciting to be consistently named a ‘Leader’ in the Gartner reports for both North America and Europe. We believe this recognition highlights that our strategy of combined focus on enhancing employee experience and improving productivity, is helping our customers, across industry verticals, achieve significant business outcomes.
