15,000 Wipro developers to create apps on IBM platform

|October 26, 2015 0

BANGALORE, INDIA: IBM and Wipro announced a collaboration in which Wipro will use the IBM Bluemix cloud development platform to create and deploy mobile, analytics and machine learning solutions for clients around the world.

As part of the effort, Wipro has committed to train and engage 15,000 developers on the platform through an online open course across 58 countries. This team of developers will leverage Bluemix as a development platform to develop new value-added services for the customers through Wipro Analytics solutions.

It must be noted that Wipro is already investing in solutions on-boarding on the Bluemix platform. These include the Data Discovery Platform, an integrated solution capturing and managing data to generate actionable insights through advanced analytics; Big Data Ready Enterprise which optimizes and integrates various big data solutions; and Wipro Apollo, an anomaly detection platform for fraud, risk and compliance.

As part of the new collaboration, Wipro will leverage more than 100 services through IBM’s public Bluemix catalog as well as Bluemix Dedicated—a private cloud that developers can use to build apps involving sensitive data. With a growing list of demands for scalability, security and capacity, IBM will also tap into Wipro’s global talent pool to accelerate the release of new Bluemix features.

“Today’s developers need to quickly collect, analyze and make sense of massive data sets in ways that haven’t been possible before in advanced analytics development practices,” said Robert LeBlanc, Senior Vice President, IBM Cloud. “The synergies that are created as a result of this collaboration will create competitive advantages for our customers by helping them leverage the IBM Cloud to speed data analysis, speed application deployment and speed time to market for their products and services.”

Further, the companies will host Wipro’s developers and customers at IBM’s Bluemix Garages in London, San Francisco or Toronto, where they will have an opportunity to learn development practices in a start-up atmosphere.
