Posted Apr 15, 2009

Indian IT company Wipro Technologies is looking to enter the cloud market over the next three to six months.  Wipro directly competes with companies such as IBM and Accenture.  In an interview with InformationWeek, WiPro CTO Vijaya Kumar stated that the company is planning four services around cloud computing: public cloud services, private clouds, hybrid clouds, and implementing software as a service.

When asked how Wipro could compete with Amazon, Google, Salesforce, etc., the CTO stated that they plan to focus on vertical industries such as retail and health care., Google, Salesforce etc. seem to be more for general use rather than focusing on specific industries.
