Claims to help users achieve cost reduction of up to 50% by migrating
Wipro Technologies, an IT services business of Wipro Limited, has signed a Microsoft Business Productivity Online Suite (BPOS) ‘Dedicated Advisor’ agreement with Microsoft.
The agreement allows Wipro to advise and enable its enterprise customers to migrate to the BPOS cloud services by provisioning a range of professional services from ‘go-live’ assessments to full migration and solution implementation accelerators. By migrating, enterprises will be able to achieve cost reductions, saving up to 50% for their customers, the company claims.
Wipro said that it is developing Microsoft Enterprise Architecture Transformation Platform to help accelerate the migration to Microsoft technologies.
According to Wipro, the suite is a set of cloud-based applications for enterprises, and includes Microsoft Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, Office Live Meeting, Office Communications Online and Forefront Online Protection for Exchange.
In addition, Wipro will support its clients’ evaluation and adoption of BPOS, as part of the company’s transformation outsourcing services. The services include evaluation consulting, advisory services, migration and other value added services.
The company said that the customers can choose any or all of the products from the suite, which will provide collaboration, content management, messaging and directory platform services, along with advisory, migration and maintenance services.
Eron Kelly, senior director of product management at Microsoft, said: Wipro has experience in platform migration capabilities that allow for faster implementation and help customers realise value much faster.
