Elaborating on Wipro’s successful BI PM implementations, Srinivas Pallia, Vice President, Business Technology Services, Wipro Technologies said, “This recognition by Gartner reflects the acceptance of our position as a company helping our clients transform their business using the right information and insights. Our comprehensive performance management and analytics solutions address business objectives, critical business processes and incorporate robust Information Management technology.”

According to the report, “Wipro's ability to leverage a centralized BI practice globally and into Western Europe brings additional strength to the practice through significant size and scale, and this practice includes PM built on strong frameworks and advanced, domain-specific analytics in its portfolio.”
