IBM bags Wipro

IBM logoWipro, a major Indian service and business company, has signed a deal with IBM to use Big Blue’s Bluemix cloud development platform.

Wipro, on its part, said it will train 15,000 of its developers to use Bluemix via an online open course across 58 countries.

Wipro is to use over 100 services in IBM’s public Bluemix catalogue but will also use Bluemix Dedicated. That’s a private cloud version for developers to build apps that access sensitive data.

IBM gets access to Wipro’s global pool of developers to release new Bluemix features.

Wipro believes that the deal it has signed with IBM will give it access to Bluemix that will benefit its customers.

No financial details of the deal were announced.
