The lab has end-to-end visibility of business processes, better inventory forecast algorithms, streamlined supply chain processes, real-time analytics for industry-specific solutions, based on SAP's HANA platform and Cisco's servers.
"Besides machine-to-machine, digital marketing and social media analytics for big data, we are demonstrating hybrid cloud migration strategies and internet of Everything across industries at the centre," Verma pointed out.
The centre will also serve as an incubation and demonstration platform for the company's customers worldwide.
"In a dynamic business environment, customers are looking for complete industry solutions that can provide real-time insights into their core business processes," Verma noted.
Wipro and Cisco are jointly working to develop solutions that can be delivered through flexible consumption models in a hybrid cloud environment.
"The world-class facility is being used to establish thought leadership and create solutions that solve customers' major business problems," Cisco vice-president for global and strategic partnership Rick Snyder observed.
