Wipro has partnered with IBM to use the IBM Bluemix cloud development platform for the agile creation and deployment of mobile, analytics and machine learning solutions for clients around the world.

As part of the effort, Wipro has committed to train and engage 15,000 of its developers on the platform through a massive online open course across 58 countries.

This team of developers will leverage Bluemix as a development platform, resulting in the introduction of new value-added services for the customers of Wipro through Wipro Analytics solutions.

Bluemix leverages open technologies to give developers greater scalability and flexibility to build, deploy and manage cloud applications quickly and easily.

Wipro is already investing in solutions onboarding on the Bluemix platform. These include the Data Discovery Platform, an integrated solution capturing and managing data to generate actionable insights through advanced analytics; Big Data Ready Enterprise which optimizes and integrates various big data solutions; and Wipro Apollo, an anomaly detection platform for fraud, risk and compliance.

Wipro will leverage more than 100 services through IBM’s public Bluemix catalog as well as Bluemix Dedicated – a private-cloud version that developers can use to build apps involving sensitive data.

With a growing list of demands for scalability, security and capacity, IBM will tap into Wipro’s global talent pool to accelerate the release of new Bluemix features.
