Wipro launches IIoT CoE

Thiruvananthapuram, Mar 14 (UNI) Wipro Limited, a leading global information technology, consulting and business process services company, announced the launch of its Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) Centre of Excellence (CoE) in Kochi on Thursday.
The CoE marks Wipro’s commitment to developing innovative IIoT solutions that span across the technology stack for its customers in the industrial manufacturing, automotive, healthcare and pharmaceutical, consumer products and goods, and utilities space.
Leveraging artificial intelligence, blockchain and robotics, the centre will develop Proofs of Concept (POCs) and market-ready IoT solutions in an iterative agile development model.
M. Sivasankar, IT Secretary, Government of Kerala, who inaugurated the centre said, "Kerala has focused on technologies, which are critical to the Industry 4.0 concept and IoT is an integral part of this proposition."
The State has endeavoured to address skill-related issues in emerging technology areas including IIoT by fostering a vibrant hardware-based start-up ecosystem and a skilling framework that connects technical institutions.
With the rollout of the Kerala Fibre Optic Network (KFON), the ambitious fibre2home/enterprise/institution network in the next 18 months, local economy stakeholders will increasingly benefit from IoT deployments.
So, Wipro’s decision to set up its third global IIoT centre in Kerala is a timely one and I hope it grows into a major development centre in a short period of time, Mr Sivasankar added.
Jayraj Nair, Vice President and Global Head - IoT, Wipro Limited said, “We are proud to launch our Industrial IoT Centre of Excellence in Kerala, our third such centre after Mountain View, California and Bangalore."
