“We leverage Google cloud platform to build solutions and capabilities to help enterprises embark on their cloud journey,” said the statement.

The software vendor’s solutions, with Google cloud technologies embedded at their core, will enable enterprises to future-proof their IT investments.

The outsourcing firm will also integrate Google’s open platform Anthos to manage applications in a multi-cloud world and enable hybrid cloud deployments for its customers.

“Our offerings on Google Cloud are innovation-focused. We equip our customers with the right tools to operate on a modern IT infrastructure, adopt a ‘business-first’ approach and be future-ready,” said Ramesh Nagarajan, Vice President for cloud services, Wipro.
