Leading global information technology, consulting and business process services company, Wipro Limited, plans to set up a digital innovation hub in Dusseldorf.
The hub will serve as Wipro’s flagship center in Europe and offer digital transformation expertise to companies in Germany, enable organizations to cross-skill and upskill, as well as support the development of talent in local communities. Wipro will also collaborate with institutions and universities in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, to develop tailored programs and career opportunities for young graduates in advanced digital skills and technologies.
According to the European Commission, only one out of five companies across the European Union are highly digitalised. In addition, around 60% of large industries and over 90% of small and medium-sized enterprises lag in digital innovation.
Thierry Delaporte, CEO and managing director of the 180,000 staff firm, said, "We will offer our customers in the German and EU markets the ability to leverage our global scale, technical expertise and strategic investments to digitally transform their enterprises."
“Wipro has built significant expertise around such digital hubs/pods globally. Germany is an attractive destination for world-class talent and innovation, which we’re excited and committed to harnessing in collaboration with our clients. This hub will serve and be relevant to multiple industry segments,” added Wipro’s head of continental Europe, Barath Narayanan SS.
