Wipro Limited is partnering with Citrix Systems, Inc. and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) to help accelerate remote working and modernise the workspace. The companies are working on a pay-per-use solution that is subscription-based and offers a consistent cloud experience.
Wipro will integrate its Desktop as a Service platform, virtuadesk, and Wipro’s Digital Workspace solution with a host of services offered by Citrix and HPE. The partnership will leverage Citrix® Virtual Apps & Desktop™ Services with a zero-trust security strategy alongside purpose-built Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) from HPE to manage workloads and create secure, high-performance virtual compute environments through HPE GreenLake cloud services. The combination of advanced solutions and architecture will fully support the development of modern virtual workspaces with flexible commercial models to ensure business continuity.
Wipro virtuadesk provides accelerators for cloud readiness assessment, cloud migration and application life cycle management. In addition, virtuadesk makes it easier to leverage the benefits that accompany Artificial Intelligence, automation, the Internet of Things, heightened mobility and advanced analytics. This creates an ecosystem for improved employee engagement and collaboration through simpler IT. Virtuadesk also allows for greater workplace efficiency and accessibility, with 24/7 access to apps and data.
Satish Y, Vice President, iCORE – Cloud and Infrastructure Services, Wipro Limited said, “We are excited to collaborate with Citrix and HPE to further enhance the value we create for our customers. This integration strengthens our complementary capabilities in virtualization tools and platforms, desktop and application integration, as well as workplace management services. Together, we will equip enterprises to enhance employee experiences and build a collaborative, intelligent, flexible and sustainable workspace that helps them achieve transformative outcomes.”
“The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way the world works,” said Sachin Menon, Vice President, Global Strategic Partners, Citrix. “Remote work has become the standard for many companies, and together with Wipro and HPE, Citrix can deliver a powerful digital workspace in a trusted and secure public cloud where employees can access everything they need to get work done and perform at their best wherever they happen to be.”
“In response to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis and the subsequent new normal, businesses feel pressured to implement secure, remote work options for their employees,” said Arwa Kaddoura, Vice President, Worldwide Sales and Go To Market, HPE GreenLake. “A key element of any VDI implementation is ensuring a customer’s platform supports the workload they are running. With HPE GreenLake for VDI, we are offering customers a broad portfolio of secure VDI infrastructure solutions to match specific use cases or workloads. And now, through our joint solution with Wipro we will help customers address their most immediate challenges and unexpected demands.”
