VMware and Wipro announced an expanded collaboration that aims to help customers achieve greater cloud freedom and enterprise control as they execute digital strategies.

The companies are bringing together VMware Cross-Cloud services with Wipro FullStride Cloud Services to help global enterprises accelerate app modernisation and reduce the cost, complexity and risk of moving to the cloud.

VMware and Wipro are collaborating to help eliminate the complexity and risk inherent in customers' multi-cloud initiatives, the companies state.

Wipro will offer a full portfolio of digital transformation services that includes VMware Cross-Cloud services across Asia Pacific.

VMware senior vice president strategic ecosystem and industry solutions Zia Yusuf says, "Digital transformation and multi-cloud are inseparable concepts, requiring that industry leaders such as VMware and Wipro bring together our collective strengths to help make multi-cloud as easy to adopt and manage as possible.

"Together, VMware and Wipro are providing enterprises the solutions and services they need to harness the power of multi-cloud to achieve value from technology investments faster, compete more effectively, and operate their businesses more efficiently and securely."

Wipro Limited senior vice president global head of ecosystems and partnerships Jason Eichenholz says, “The innovative solutions we have created with VMware enable enterprises to accelerate the development and deployment of modern apps while dramatically simplifying the management of a multi-cloud infrastructure.

"This strategic partnership will help customers accelerate innovation and drive agility and scale, which makes it an exciting proposition for leading enterprises.

Through the combination of Wipro FullStride Cloud Services and VMware Cross-Cloud services, customers can address the following strategic priorities, according to the companies:

Scale cloud native platform operations: Wipro FullStride Cloud Services cloud native acceleration platform (CNAP) is a fully orchestrated cloud-agnostic platform built on the comprehensive Tanzu portfolio, including Tanzu Application Platform, Tanzu Build Service, Tanzu Kubernetes Grid and Tanzu Service Mesh.

The platform utilises code-ready workspaces and templated modernisation recipes to build modern apps and provides developers both autonomy and speed for faster application releases. Zero-touch operations are enabled through BoundaryLess Container Platform with ready-made pipelines powered by Tanzu Mission Control, Tanzu Observability, and partner ecosystem solutions to provide seamless and automated lifecycle management across Apps, Kubernetes and containers.

Accelerate enterprise cloud transformation: Wipro FullStride Cloud Services Global Cloud Studios with VMware Cloud gives customers a path to the cloud, with flexibility to match any app to the right cloud environment.

This includes VMware Cloud on AWS, Azure VMware Solution, Google Cloud VMware Engine or a native hyperscale cloud. Global Cloud Studios provides future-ready cloud lifecycle services, incorporating workload-centric cloud assessment and R-Lane decisions, landing zone design, automated migration planning and execution using VMware HCX, and Machine learning-driven managed services, the company states.

This synergy helps customers accelerate time to value, optimise service delivery, lower costs, and improve performance with a comprehensive and consistent cloud platform to run modern apps.

Wipro was recently recognised with a 2022 Partner Lifecycle Services award as part of the annual VMware Partner Achievement Awards. This award recognises Wipro for growing long term customer-partner relationships and increasing customer satisfaction.
