AdvertisementThe demand for work from home solutions is higher than ever before as COVID-19 keeps employees away from the office. As Wipro gears itself up under new leadership, it has joined hands with the computing behemoth Intel in hopes of inking for more deals in the coming quarters.
Wipro’s new CEO Theirry Delaporte expressed that the company will be focusing on ‘profitable growth’ in the coming months and Intel seems to be a part of that plan. Aside from cloud solutions, one of the major asks from clients is to enable their employees to work from home — especially from those who didn’t invest enough in their digital transformation over the last few years.
They have been bearing the brunt of the coronavirus crisis over the last few weeks, according to Delaporte. “Therefore if we need to make investments, we will make those investments and that will always be our first priority,” explained Wipro CFO Jatin Dalal.
Pushing on remote work solutions
Intel will enable Wipro’s LIVE Workspace which will be the company’s digital workspace solution within the Intel vPro platform. It’s basically a digital hub that lets a company manage its devices remotely whether it's at home, in the workplace or somewhere remote.
It also promises security against firmware-level attacks. Cybersecurity has been a central concern for many companies as the number of malware attacks during the lockdown have been on the rise. Global IT giant Cognizant was subject to a ransomware attack and another US-based law company saw its clients’ personal data get stolen off its servers.
