The partnership gives customers in India the choice to evaluate, select and use a complete open source solution stack backed by award winning solution and support from Red Hat, with implementation, delivery and support services from Wipro.
"We have seen increased adoption of open source solutions across the enterprise and specifically in the government, telecommunications and insurance industries. Open source solutions are a significant part of the business strategy at Wipro, and we have invested in creating an open source practice, which today has strong skill sets in delivering end to end solutions," said Achuthan Nair, Vice President and Business Head, Professional Services, Wipro, India, Middle East and Africa.
"The partnership with Red Hat is a compelling value proposition for customers who have started to adopt the performance, reliability, scalability, security and superior value available through open source technology."
The partnership will enable Wipro to better serve customers that are seeking to virtualise their environments, deploy supported open source middleware for their applications, leverage cloud computing, enable SOA within their business processes and migrate from proprietary to an open source environment.
