What does it mean to be a purpose-driven business? For Wipro, it’s about being a great partner to their customers and the communities where they serve and live. With over 250,000 employees in 66 countries, Wipro directs 67% of their profits to the Azim Premji Foundation, a nonprofit founded to help build a more equitable society. On this episode, Wipro Chief Growth Officer Stephanie Trautman chats with VMware’s Zia Yusuf about the increasing importance of partnerships, latest industry trends, and an exciting joint announcement. Wipro has created a VMware business unit to make investments, aligning their expertise with VMware technology to create the most impact for clients. Together, the companies are building a “spider web” of solutions to benefit the entire partner ecosystem. As Stephanie puts it, clients don’t want to buy technology—they want to buy solutions. Enjoy this insightful discussion with an industry leader and change agent.
