How Wipro Is Channeling India’s Tech Talent To Push Innovation

Throughout the years, India has fervently made its way towards the development and advancement in the field of science and technology. In fact, according to the last year’s KPMG report, India is ranked third in “Top Global Tech Innovation Leader”. The US tops the list and China is in the second spot. And this is nothing less than a sheer success for India.

Talking about the tech innovations in India that is snowballing, Government is not the only body that is working towards it, there are big players, mid-sized firms, startups, institutions and even individuals.  

And with all the alliances that are forming, there is no denying that the transition journey towards becoming a leading innovation hub in the world is almost a reality now. India has a tremendous pool of young, dynamic and skilled talents, and soon the nation is prophesied to become a focal point to generate more than ever innovative ideas in the coming years.

The Wipro Initiatives

Looking at the centres that are preparing young talents for the upcoming wave of technology, India is not leaving a stone unturned. One of the most sought after technology, IoT has marked its presence in the nation over the past couple of years and there are companies that are working relentlessly to push out more solutions to the world.

And to be a part of this significant transformation, Indian technology giant Wipro is taking vital steps. Recently, Wipro announced that it is launching of its Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) Centre of Excellence (CoE) in Kochi, Kerala. The company has also stated that this initiative has been taken in order to develop state-of-the-art IIoT solutions for its customers in the industrial manufacturing, automotive, healthcare and pharmaceutical, consumer products and goods, and utility space.

This all-new IIoT CoE will be using the sought after technologies such as artificial intelligence, blockchain and robotics, and develop Proof of Concepts (POCs) and market-ready IoT solutions.

Furthermore, Wipro has also taken steps that would benefit students pursuing their engineering. On March 12 and 13, the Indian tech giant hosted a two-day hackathon that witnessed participation from some of the leading engineering colleges in the region of Kochi.

IIoT is not the only space where the Indian tech giant is hustling hard, artificial intelligence and 5G is also there in Wipro’s checklist. The firm has recently formed an alliance with Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur (IITKGP) to carry out applied research on 5G and artificial intelligence.

The motive behind this partnership is to use the research outcomes by Wipro to develop solutions for its customers, across several verticals. Talking about the advantage that IIT-KGP will have is that the commercialization of the joint research insights and Wipro’s real-world industry expertise. According to the Indian tech giant, the research will focus on design, planning and operations of 5G networks and cognitive information processing.

Over the years, Wipro has worked on many projects with other bodies of the nation and have always pushed the nation’s technological advancement. With this new initiative taking place, the company is definitely going all-out and take India’s technological ecosystem to the next phase.

Outlook

India technology base is one of the strongest in the world and it is spread across the country in forms of institutions, labs, research centres etc. and those who would make the correct use of these bases will definitely be benefited. While there are organisations who are trying to form alliances and work together, there are companies too who are in a race to move past its rivals. If we look through a perspective where companies instead of fighting and competing for each, join hands and innovate, wouldn’t it be great? It would not only benefit the nation but would also benefit the young and dynamic technology enthusiasts of India.
