In this constantly changing world, our clients across the globe are focused on revenue growth and enhancing productivity with a view to increasing their profits.

In parallel, our clients realise that they need to significantly change their cost structures and create a focused marketing strategy for each of their customer segments to compete globally.”
Premji said that technology would be the key enabler for Wipro’s clients to achieve “this dual objective of growth and differentiation as they transform themselves.
