RSA has formed a new 7-year partnership with Wipro Ltd. to deliver its IT infrastructure requirements across the U.K., Ireland, and Scandinavia.
Wipro will be providing infrastructure as a service for mainframe, mid-range, storage, cloud, and end-user services in addition to a multilingual service desk for RSA employees in all the regions. This will enable pan-European standardization, improved end-to-end responsibility, and a platform for business-led collaboration. This agreement follows a 10-month sourcing program, which included 20 bidders, and reflects RSA's aim to drive benefits through the consolidation of services across its regional businesses.
Darren Price, group CIO, RSA said, "We are delighted to partner with Wipro to provide our IT infrastructure needs across U.K., Ireland, and Scandinavia. Throughout the selection process, Wipro was a front runner because of its technical excellence and customer centricity. This partnership is a major step forward in our group technology strategy enabling us to provide a market-leading, agile, affordable, and secure infrastructure platform which supports profitable growth and enables our digital future."
Shaji Farooq, president and chief executive, BFSI, Wipro said, "We are excited to enter into this new partnership and will leverage our global expertise to help RSA maximize value from their infrastructure. We see this as a key enabler for RSA to achieve the desired business outcomes from their IT investments."
