Wipro Limited and Outokumpu, a multinational stainless steel manufacturer, have announced a strategic deal to accelerate Outokumpu’s cloud transformation for applications. This is yet another win for Wipro in Finland, resulting from Wipro’s renewed focus and investments across the Nordics and in Finland. Five-year deal strengthens Wipro and Outokumpu’s existing eight-year partnership, focuses on agility, productivity, and customer-centricity
The deal will help Outokumpu reach its goal of becoming an agile, data-driven, sustainability-focused organization by delivering next-generation applications and building a Microsoft Azure-powered platform for Outokumpu’s corporate and factory applications. As a result, Outokumpu will respond faster to changing business needs and improve productivity, reliability, and the cost-effectiveness of IT services. In addition, this on-demand platform will reduce consumption of power, lowering the carbon footprint associated with Outokumpu’s IT infrastructure.
Stefan Erdmann, Chief Technology Officer, Outokumpu, said, “Our 2025 vision for growth sees us concentrating on three priorities: sustainability, growth from productivity, and customer-focused steering, strengthening our position as the customer’s first choice in sustainable stainless steel. This partnership with Wipro will expedite this agile, productive, and customer-centric approach, thanks to Wipro’s expertise in delivering digital solutions for metals and steel companies, and its deep understanding of our mission-critical systems and processes.”
Vinay Firake, Senior Vice President & Managing Director – Nordics, Wipro Ltd, said, “This deal is the latest step in our partnership with Outokumpu to accelerate its digital transformation. Wipro is fuelling the change in how Outokumpu’s IT services are delivered to the business, making them more resilient and responsive to the ever-changing needs of the market and its customers. This long-term relationship has been made possible because of how we partner with customers on-the-ground here in the Nordics. We have accelerated our focus and investments in Finland and continue to build teams locally to drive customer centricity and innovation. We look forward to continuing to bring strategic value to Outokumpu.”
