Wipro lands £32m deal with National Grid

LogoWipro has secured a data centre transformation contract with National Grid. The five-year deal, which contains two twelve month extension options, is valued at $44.5m (c.£32m). The engagement will see Wipro help the UK and US energy company move to a hybrid cloud infrastructure.

This award follows just six months after Wipro subsidiary Appirio was selected by National Grid to deliver an omnichannel customer experience for its 68 million customers across two continents. The data centre deal is also the latest in a series of recent successes by the offshore major in the utilities sector. These include wins at E.ON, Southern Water Services and SSE.

Wipro does appear to be regaining its mojo under the leadership of CEO Thierry Delaporte. The company leapt off the starting blocks with headline Q122 revenue growth of almost 26%. This is the first time in more than nine years that Wipro has exceeded single-digit yoy growth in any quarter. In no small part, this was driven by renewed success in the big deals arena with Wipro landing 12 contacts worth $1.4b in aggregate during FY21.
