New York, USA and Bangalore, India – August 03, 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 earned the Kubernetes on Microsoft Azure advanced specialization, a validation of a solution partner’s deep knowledge, extensive experience and proven expertise in deploying and managing production workloads in the cloud using containers and managing hosted Kubernetes environments in Microsoft Azure.
Only partners that meet stringent criteria around customer success and staff skilling, as well as pass a third-party audit of their container-based workload deployment and management practices are able to earn the Kubernetes on Azure advanced specialization.
With over 75% of global organizations expected to run containerized applications in production by 2022, many are looking for a partner with advanced skills to migrate their existing containerized workloads to the cloud, or assist them in developing cloud-native applications using container technologies, DevOps patterns, and a microservices approach.
“Today most enterprise customers are planning to run their applications on containers to address their business scalability requirements. Microsoft’s Azure Kubernetes Service is a leading offering in that category and this advanced specialization recognizes our capabilities in the area. Our expertise in delivering AKS along with devNXT, our modernization platform, has helped multiple global customers adopt their Cloud modernization journey at a faster pace,” said Arun Melkote, Vice President & Practice Head, App Engineering and Modernization, iDEAS, Wipro Limited.
