Google Cloud to Advance Wipro Limited’s System, Data Processing
Source:-hitinfrastructure.com Wipro will transform SAP applications with Google Cloud and roll out G Suite into its workplace productivity tool set to support over 180,000 of its employees.
Google Cloud recently announced that it will now be the cloud provider for Wipro Limited’s enterprise-wide systems applications and products in data processing (SAP) footprint.
The partnership will bring SAP applications and workloads to the cloud to support over 180,000 of Wipro’s employees.
Specializing in global information technology, Wipro will modernize and transform its enterprise resource planning (ERP) system to SAP’s flagship, which is the company’s leading product.

Wipro will then relocate SAP workloads onto Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Google officials said.
“Wipro is embracing digital transformation at speed and scale. By modernizing their core systems and technologies with Google Cloud, they have a powerful and scalable foundation to accelerate their strategic enterprise priorities and build for the future,” Thomas Kurian, CEO, Google Cloud, said in the announcement.
As part of the collaboration, Wipro will leverage G Suite for some of its employees as a workplace productivity platform. Wipro believes that G Suite has strong interoperability and security controls and features that allow for real-time collaboration, even in remote work environments.
“As a provider of digital transformation services to some of the world’s most impactful businesses, it is critical that our own core systems and technologies are running on intelligent and modern platforms that encompass the needs of the future,” said Bhanumurthy B.M, president and chief operating officer, Wipro Limited.
“This transformation program will help us to run our most business-critical workloads and applications with speed and agility, and to support our customers more effectively.”
Wipro’s industry-focused solutions, with Google Cloud technologies, enable enterprises to future-proof their IT investments, Google officials said. And Wipro’s Google Cloud practice also helps transform businesses and healthcare organizations as well.
This transformation includes application modernization, data analytics, artificial intelligence, SAP workload migration, and industrialized cloud migrations at scale.
Additionally, Wipro integrated Anthos, Google’s open platform for managing applications, into its services offerings to enable hybrid cloud deployments for customers.
Back in April 2019, Google launched Anthos, a platform to allow providers to run applications, unmodified, on existing hardware investments or in the public cloud.
Anthos allows healthcare organizations to manage workloads running on third-party clouds like AWS and Azure, to deploy, run, and manage applications on the cloud, without requiring administrators to learn different environments and APIs, Google officials said.
And in mid-July of this year, Google launched BigQuery Omni, a multi-cloud analytics platform designed to help customers to bring the power of BigQuery to data stored in Google Cloud, Amazon Web Services (AWS), and Microsoft Azure.
Through Anthos, BigQuery Omni aims to support enterprises with breaking down silos and creating actionable business insights at an affordable price.
“The ability to run the same database on multiple cloud/data center environments is an important consideration when selecting a new data platform,” said Matt Aslett, research director, data, AI and analytics, 451 Research, in a statement.
“As hybrid and multi-cloud adoption has become the norm, enterprises are increasingly looking for data products that provide a consistent experience and lower complexity of using multiple clouds, while enabling the ongoing use of existing infrastructure investments,” he added.
