EAST BRUNSWICK, N.J. & BANGALORE, India--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Wipro Limited (NYSE: WIT, BSE: 507685, NSE: WIPRO), a leading global information technology, consulting and business process services company, today announced that it has been positioned as a Leader in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Managed Workplace Services, North America1. The report authored by Daniel Barros & Mark Ray was published on January 14, 2019.
“Gartner evaluates the providers based on the quality and efficacy of the processes, systems, methods and procedures that enable each provider’s performance to be competitive and effective, while positively affecting revenue, retention and reputation.” This Magic Quadrant assessed 21 MWS providers on their ability to execute and completeness of vision. Wipro has been positioned as a “Leader” in this Magic Quadrant for Managed Workplace Services, North America for the third time in a row.
According to Gartner analysts, “Leaders deliver their service solutions skillfully, have a clear vision of the direction of the service market, and are actively building and improving their competencies to sustain their leadership positions. The Leaders quadrant indicates the direction of the MWS market. However, most digital workplace offerings still have low adoption rates. Ten providers have emerged as Leaders in this Magic Quadrant. Leaders have demonstrated their experience in delivering MWS and understand the requirements to successfully deliver these services. They have proved their ability to execute and their completeness of vision.”
Kiran Desai, Senior Vice President and Global Head, Cloud and Infrastructure Services, Wipro Limited said, “We are pleased to have been positioned as a Leader in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Managed Workplace Services, North America, for the third successive year.
