East Brunswick, New Jersey, United States & Bangalore, Karnataka, India

Wipro Limited (NYSE: WIT, BSE: 507685, NSE: WIPRO), a leading global information technology, consulting, and business process services company, today announced that it has been positioned as a ‘Leader’ in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Managed Workplace Services, North America. The report authored by Daniel Barros, Helen Huntley, Karen A. Hobert was published on January 30, 2017.
 
According to Gartner analysts, “Leaders deliver their service solutions skillfully, have a clear vision of the direction of the service market, and are actively building and improving their competencies to sustain their leadership positions. The Leaders quadrant indicates the direction of the managed workplace services (MWS) market. However, most digital workplace offerings still have low adoption rates. Eight service providers have emerged as Leaders in this Magic Quadrant. Leaders have demonstrated their experience in delivering managed workplace services and understand the requirements to successfully deliver these services. They have proved their ability to execute and their completeness of vision.”
 
The report evaluated 21 different software vendors on 15 criteria including their completeness of vision, service delivery capabilities, customer experience, operations, market understanding, strategy, innovation, and has placed Wipro in the 'Leaders' quadrant. The full report is available here.
