Bengaluru: Ltd.’s relationship with big tech companies – including Apple Inc., Google, Facebook Inc., Microsoft Corp. and Amazon.com Inc. – has never been as strong as it is today, said Thierry Delaporte, CEO of the Indian IT services company, on Thursday.
“I think we have a lot more commitment to these companies today than we did 10 years ago. They need us as much as we need them, ”Delaporte told Phil Fersht, founder of HFS Research, while chatting over a Zoom call.
Delaporte has been at the helm of Wipro for 11 months now. “We are different worlds. They develop products, but they need companies like us that can create an environment where they can continue to scale and develop applications and solutions on these large platforms and environments, ”he said.
According to Delaporte, Wipro is an orchestrator that works closely with companies and reduces the complexity of new technology integrations to help them get the most out of their assets.
He contradicted the wisdom suggesting that product and service companies are at odds, saying that the benefits IT services companies have seen from adopting the cloud is a great example of how the two industries can grow together.
Wipro and its Indian colleagues are benefiting from their customers’ rapid adoption of the cloud and helping them move their applications to cloud service providers such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud. “It is very clear that every business needs to move (to the cloud) because if you don’t drive your cloud transformation, you will never have the agility that allows you to adapt to the advancement of technology,” said Delaporte .
After his takeover as CEO, Delaporte simplified the corporate structure, removed employees in need, hired new team members and won large orders from customers such as the German Metro AG, which has led to decades of growth for the company.
He also led the company on its largest acquisition – UK Capco for $ 1.45 billion in March – and forecast 8-10% growth in the quarter through June.
Wipro’s positive comment has also pushed the company’s shares to record highs, with its market cap above Rs 3 lakh crore on Thursday.
