German utility Innogy has awarded Indian IT specialists Wipro a seven-year contract to manage their data center and cloud services.
Bangalore-based Wipro will help the company, which focuses on renewables, grid & infrastructure and retail, to rationalize, virtualize and consolidate their IT infrastructure.
Wipro will also invest in and maintain Innogy’s twin data centers in Germany.
Innogy transferred its twin data centers in Neurath und Niederaussen in Germany to Wipro on February 1, 2017.
“We believe that Wipro is the best partner to accompany us on our IT journey around data center services. Therefore, we have not only signed a contract in Germany but also have extended our contract with Wipro in the UK until 2024,” said Marcus Schaper, CIO innogy SE.
Wipro said its traditional strength in catering to utility companies and in managing IT infrastructure services will come in handy in serving the client.
