Indian IT software and services company, Wipro Infotech, has inked a deal with the regional arm of Computer Associates to target the region’s enterprise market. Through the alliance, CA-ME will continue to provide e-business infrastructure whilst Wipro will supply project management and implementation services.

Through the alliance, CA-ME expects to reduce implementation times by between 30 and 40%, therefore delivering a much faster return on investment (ROI) for customers.

“Computer Associates and Wipro Infotech complement one another exceptionally well. CA is the world’s leader in e-business management software solutions; Wipro, has considerable experience in managing large projects worldwide and is a leader in enterprise software solutions implementation,” says Abdul Aziz Al-Salloum, managing director of CA-ME.

“Together, we are able to provide the Middle East market with seamless solutions from the combined, globally-experienced project management teams. This will definitely increase the return on investment made by Middle East customers and bring discipline to big project implementations,” adds Al-Salloum.

“What Wipro brings to the Computer Associates alliance is the ability to provide the region’s customers, even SME’s [small and medium sized enterprises], with complete ‘turn-key’ IT solutions. The CA partnership will also give us access to some of the largest, most prominent enterprises in the region, where CA technology has already been implemented – which is key for any new market entrant,” comments Suresh Vaswani, president, Wipro Infotech.

Under the terms of the agreement, the two firms have established a unified sales and technical team responsible for new business throughout the Middle East.
