BENGALURU: Leading international insurer, RSA, today announced a new seven-year partnership with IT major Wipro Ltd to deliver its IT infrastructure requirements across the UK, Ireland and Scandinavia.
Wipro will be providing infrastructure as a service for mainframe, mid-range, storage, cloud and end user services in addition to a multilingual service desk for RSA employees in all the regions, the company said.
This will enable pan-European standardisation, improved end-to-end responsibility and a platform for business-led collaboration, Wipro said in a release here.
The agreement follows a 10-month sourcing programme, which included 20 bidders, and reflects RSA’s aim to drive benefits through consolidation of services across its regional businesses, it said.
Darren Price, Group CIO, RSA, said the partnership is a major step forward in their Group technology strategy enabling it to provide a market-leading, agile, affordable and secure infrastructure platform.
“We see this as a key enabler for RSA to achieve the desired business outcomes from their IT investments,” Shaji Farooq, President and Chief Executive, BFSI, Wipro said.
