Wipro Wins Infrastructure Management Contract From ASSA ABLOY Group

Software Company Wipro said that it has won an IT infrastructure transformation contract from the Sweden headquartered ASSA ABLOY Group for 5 year, that offers door opening solutions.

Under this agreement, Wipro will consolidate ASSA ABLOY’s existing data centers in the EMEA region and implement a cloud-based service model, Wipro said.

The model includes IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) and PaaS (Platform as a Service). The deployment will leverage Wipro’s Boundary Less Data Center offering and provide a full suite of IT infrastructure management services to ASSA ABLOY’s global organisation, Wipro said in a statement here. This solution will bring in a high level of agility, and a consumption-based IT service model powered by an user-friendly service catalogue, Wipro said in a statement.

The goal of the IT engagement is to improve the efficiency of the company’s data center services by moving them into Wipro’s Boundary Less Data Center (BLDC) offering and establishing a global delivery model through Wipro’s ServiceNXT, the company’s integrated Managed Services framework, the statement said.

The ASSA ABLOY Group is a Swedish lock manufacturer, and is the world’s largest lock manufacturer by sales volume. ASSA ABLOY with 44,000 employees is present in more than 70 countries and has a market leading position in areas such as mechanical and electromechanical locking, access control, identification technology, entrance automation and hotel security, according to the Group. 

ASSA ABLOY was formed in 1994 when Assa AB was separated from Swedish security firm Security AB. Shortly thereafter, the Finnish high-security lock manufacturer Abloy Oy (a subsidiary of the Finnish company Wartsila) was acquired. The company was introduced to the Stockholm Stock Exchange later the same year. ASSA ABLOY has since made over 150 acquisitions.
