As we enter the second decade of the 21st Century, change seems to be the only constant. This dynamic means that businesses are facing challenges and opportunities which are very different to what they were a decade ago or even a year ago. The world of tomorrow is one where uncertainty and fierce global micro-competition is going to be the norm. Rightly so, the world is looking up to innovation in the triangle of technology, sociology and the environment to help them deal with these changes.
This innovation is coming to the fore in various hues and has shifted from the core to the edge of the enterprise. This is being driven by the rise of trends like analytics, mobility, cloud and as-a-service, even as the future will see newer technologies such as machine-to-machine (M2M) communication and natural user interface (NUI) fast becoming mainstream.
In this fast changing world, Wipro believes it can leverage on its institutionalized innovation culture to push the boundaries for delivering solutions that provide enhanced value and direct impact for our customers.
This culture has brought to the fore innovations like India's most powerful supercomputer, a cost-effective Base Terminal Station designed for GSM networks in underserved markets, a mobile switching router for emerging markets, connected home concept and Wipro Energy Manager that uses M2M communication, among others. Taking forward our legacy in pioneering the ODC concept, Wipro has also developed application-based innovations like Flex and Cigma delivery models which are service-based as opposed to resource-based.
Wipro is also partnering with European research institute IMEC to co-innovate and develop next-generation intelligent systems based on nanoelectronics and aimed at emerging markets through an initiative called Applied Research in Intelligent Systems Engineering (ARISE).
