  • Wipro: ‘Obsession for Growth’

    Dec 12, 2020, by Rachael Stormonth

    With a new Chairman appointed 15 months ago and a new CEO in place for the last four, Wipro has seen a significant changing of the guard – much has been made of the fact that Thierry Delaporte is Wipro’s first non-Indian CEO appointment. The announcements made in a recent event for financial analysts (its first such event in five years) reveal some major shifts happening within the[...]

  • Wipro Resumes Salesforce Acquisitions with 4C

    Nov 04, 2020, by Dominique Raviart

      We recently talked with Wipro regarding its 4C acquisition. Wipro accelerated the development of its Salesforce practice with the Appirio acquisition in November 2016. Indianapolis-headquartered Appirio was an essential move for Wipro, paying $500m for the firm, its second-largest acquisition ever. As well as a Salesforce business, Appirio brought in a Google practice, crowdsourcing [...]

While in India, in addition to presenting, participating on panels and conducting interviews, we had an opportunity to sit down with leaders from across the IT services landscape as well as venture beyond the Grand Hyatt Mumbai to delive[...]

  • Integration & Autonomy: Common Traits of Successful Creative Acquisitions in IT Services

    Apr 23, 2019, by David McIntire

      In recent years, many IT services firms have been aggressively acquiring new capabilities in creative areas such as design. One of the key challenges they face in acquiring such firms is managing what can be a significant culture gap between the flexibility of small creative firms and the regimented, industrialized nature of a global IT services firm. Successful acquisitions strik[...]

    Jan 10, 2018, by Dominique Raviart

      Here I look back at how M&A activity has impacted the IT services industry over the past year and make a few broad predictions for the type of activity to be expected in the next twelve months. 2016 had been marked by some large M&A announcements, with: Hardware companies moving out of services:  HPE announcing the sale of Enterprise Services to CSC (completed i[...]

  • Fast Data: The Smart Will Get Faster... and the Fast Will Get Smarter

    Oct 05, 2017, by David Mayer

      Fast Data is the emerging hot topic of discussion for business leaders seeking to get ahead of the next wave of data utilization. But Fast Data isn't just an evolution of Big Data; it's a market force unto itself that's asking more of traditional and start-up vendors in both traditional DBMS and AI. I spent a (surprisingly snowy) morning this week talking with AI and B[...]

  • Wipro Converging its Crowdtesting Activities Around QaaS & Topcoder

    Oct 04, 2017, by Dominique Raviart

        I recently talked with Wipro about its crowdtesting capabilities. Here, Wipro has a different positioning and service portfolio from crowdtesting pure-plays, with a stronger focus on automation frameworks (with its mobile website and app testing framework), and access to mobile device labs. QaaS: an aggregation of testing offerings at scale QaaS is an aggregation of s[...]

  • Wipro Q1 FY 2015 Results: Good in Parts....

    Jul 24, 2014, by Rachael Stormonth

    Wipro announced its Q1 FY 2015 results today (for full details see here:). Bit of a mixed bag from Wipro this quarter, generally positive, but with a few areas where we would hope to see improve over the next few quarters. Looking at overall topline performance, revenues were towards the higher end of prior guidance of $1,715m-$1,755m, and the 9.6% reported y/y growth was[...]

  • Wipro Q3 FY14 Results: Making Progress, But Is it Catching Up?

    Jan 17, 2014, by Rachael Stormonth

    Wipro results this quarter show an ongoing improvement: topline growth is continues to improve and operating margin is the highest it has been for two years. Clearly, it still has a way to go to catch up with Indian growth rates (NASSCOM guided on 14% this FY), let alone with TCS. This quarter, Wipro achieved an operating margin of 23% and $101m in y/y topline growth; TCS achieved an operating mar[...]
