More regional businesses are focusing on their core competencies and opting to outsource the management of their IT environment. According to Azim Premiji, chairman of software services company, Wipro, there is a growing trend in the region to leverage outsourcing partners.

In an effort to capitalise on the regional and global outsourcing trend, Wipro has recently launched its global IT outsourcing practice, which it offers IT management and consulting services to customers.

“The IT outsourcing practice is a conscious strategy to move up the services value chain. This will help our customers retain their focus on their core business,” says Premji.

“Wipro actually pioneered the offshore-onsite outsourcing concept, which has become its successful global software delivery model to offer enhanced value to its customers. We currently have 16 Software Development Centers (ODCs) in India and the overseas,” adds Premji.

Wipro, which started its local operations in Dubai Internet City (DIC) in June of last year, has already won several software services contracts across the region, including Dubai E-Government, Dubai Municipality, Riyadh Pharma, Saudi Polyolefins Company and Doha Bank.

The consulting company recently added Dubai Dry Docks to its customer list, with a deal to implement an integrated ‘enterprise application’ suite covering the finances, production, technical, commercial and human resources areas of the business. The deal leverages on Wipro’s application development resources based in Bangalore.
