BANGALORE: In the past two quarters the Wipro InfotechÂ’s India, Asia-Pacific and West Asia business is seeing wins in mid-size total outsourcing deals. The company expects the momentum grow stronger.

The company President, Suresh Vaswani said that the company, which had a total outsourcing division, was seeing a couple of such deals each quarter. “The market is clearly opening up to outsourcing, especially for total outsourcing deals,” he said.

During the second quarter, the company bagged about $17.04 million contract from Sanmar Group for 10 years and the five-years contract from Optimix worth $5.68 million. Wipro Infotech is also focusing strongly on Australia with a view to acquiring customers yielding global upsides.

At present the company has over 100 people there and it is growing over 50 percent on year-on-year basis. Australian operations are beginning to yield a significant part of service revenues, according to Vaswani.

Another recent wins for the company was a customer requiring management of 60 tera bytes of data, running on 16,000 servers. He said, “We are beginning to win against global SIs, who emphasizes Wipro is winning end-to-end contacts on its service delivery capabilities, not just costs,” he said.

Testing services are also a growth driver for Wipro, based on the differentiated services that offer customers both the global delivery model as well as domain and functional skills - with Web-enabled applications, Vaswani added.
