IT services provider Wipro has teamed up with tech giant IBM in a move it says will create a "seamless and secure" hybrid cloud journey for both enterprise and startup customers.

The new alliance will see Wipro develop hybrid cloud offerings that will help businesses migrate, manage and transform critical workloads and applications, with security across public or private cloud, as well as on-premise IT environments.

The partnership will be headquartered at the new Wipro IBM Novus Lounge dedicated innovation centre, located at Wipro’s Kodathi campus in Bengaluru.

The provider says the hub will enable a comprehensive suite of solutions that leverage cloud, AI, machine learning and the Internet of Things to help enterprises, developers and startups drive innovation.

"Wipro empowers customers across industries to re-imagine their cloud journey with its business-first strategy and industrialised solutions approach," commented Ramesh Nagarajan, SVP of Cloud Services at Wipro.

"Wipro IBM Novus Lounge will allow us to showcase hybrid multi-cloud and open source solutions even more comprehensively and support our customers’ continuous business transformation journey."

The collaboration will offer customers remote access to IBM and Red Hat solutions, which have been designed to help them scale their tech investments for improved experience and business agility with connected insights.

Wipro added that it will also leverage IBM Cloud solutions and technologies along with in-house services to develop solutions for clients in the banking and financial services, energy and utilities, retail, manufacturing and healthcare sectors.

"As companies across the world continue to drive digital transformation, decision-makers must rethink radically on how to leverage the combined power of data, cloud and open source technologies to become industry leaders," said Gaurav Sharma, vice president of Cloud and Cognitive Software at IBM India.

"Wipro IBM Novus Lounge brings together Wipro's expertise across industries and IBM’s open source technologies, designed to be secure and scalable across hybrid cloud, data and AI, all running on Red Hat OpenShift promoting the journey to Cloud and journey to AI."
