Global IT, consulting and business process services company Wipro Limited will extend its internal SAP footprint by implementing SAP S/4HANA, as well as a range of other SAP solutions, in a bid to simplify and reduce the costs of its operations.
Currently using SAP ERP, Wipro plans to implement the S/4HANA Finance solution, SAP Financial Closing cockpit, SAP Fraud Management, SAP Cash Management, and SAP Treasury and Risk Management. Wipro will also implement SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence platform, and SAP Access Control to automate detection, remediation and prevention of access risk violations.
A joint team from Wipro and SAP’s Global Service and Support organisation will undertake the implementation, which is expected to go live in early 2016.
“As a long-time SAP customer and partner, Wipro has been an early adopter of SAP HANA and other innovations from SAP, and has recognised the business benefits of an in-memory platform,” said Gerhard Oswald, member of the Executive Board and the Global Managing Board of SAP SE.
“The recent innovations delivered for SAP S/4HANA can help simplify Wipro’s business processes across its various lines of business such as finance, human resources, manufacturing, extended supply chain and beyond. We look forward to working with Wipro as they go beyond real time to a new world of live business with SAP S/4HANA.”

We are confident our partnership with SAP will drive significant value for our customers.”
