Bangalore : Wipro Limited (NYSE: WIT, BSE: 507685, NSE: WIPRO), a leading global information technology, consulting and business process services company, is partnering with Micro Focus to launch the Legacy Migration and Modernisation Lab collaborating with Amazon Web Services (AWS). This lab, hosted at Wipro’s AWS Launchpad in Parramatta, Australia, will allow companies in Australia and New Zealand (A/NZ) to experience hands-on demonstration of tools and accelerators that can help optimise mainframe application capabilities for the cloud.
The lab combines the strengths and technical expertise of Wipro, Micro Focus, and AWS to help customers become agile, reduce operational costs and mitigate application-modernisation risks to enable a cloud-ready IT ecosystem. These advanced capabilities will also help companies innovate faster and drive better business results. In addition, the lab will serve as a training ground for testing mainframe app-modernisation scenarios, allowing businesses to conduct training, and demonstrate proof of concepts in real-time.
“We are excited to collaborate with AWS and Micro Focus to launch this lab and enable our customers who continue to rely on legacy systems to drive core business functions, simplify, and modernise applications to the cloud. This lab will showcase our joint offerings to modernise the legacy ecosystem, help clients continually transform their expensive and monolithic platforms, and embrace the cloud as a strategic business advantage,” said Satish Wadhwa, Vice President, iDEAS, Wipro Limited.
“Micro Focus and Wipro have a long history of delivering mainframe-modernisation projects in Australia and New Zealand. Our co-investment in a local mainframe modernisation lab builds on our relationship, and will help clients improve the time to value associated with their mainframe modernisation and transformation,” said Brent Butchard, Sales Director Micro Focus, A/NZ.
Wipro recently announced the launch of Wipro FullStride Cloud Services and its commitment to invest $1 billion in cloud technologies, capabilities, acquisitions and partnerships over the next three years. As a part of this, Wipro will expand its legacy migration and modernisation services to help companies transform their expensive and monolith legacy platforms to the cloud, and to modernise their application ecosystem to increase agility. Wipro has obtained the AWS Mainframe Migration Competency and is a preferred partner for Micro Focus.
