The digital era has introduced the need to deliver new business models, innovative open-source technologies that provide agility, and security to support business transformation. This has necessitated the need to overcome a widening skills gap for open-source and cloud-native experts and find an effective path forward. Wipro understands the correlation between experienced delivery teams and business outcomes early in the transformation journey. With this understanding, we have partnered with Red Hat to provide a unique enablement framework that capitalizes on our upskilled workforce.


The Red Hat Ascend enablement program leverages a data-driven approach to address the training requirements of Wipro’s employees. Delivered in several ways via virtual, self-paced, and formal learning methods, Red Hat Ascend also includes hands-on/simulated challenges and peer-learning opportunities on the Red Hat technology stack.  The program is designed to help associates build their technical skills on Red Hat OpenShift, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8, Red Hat OpenStack, Ansible, Fuse, 3Scale, Kafka, Process Automation and lightweight cloud-native runtimes such as Quarkus, and various architectural patterns such as event-driven architecture.


Wipro is the first GSI partner of Red Hat to adopt this approach. We have long been committed to creating a global talent pool with Red Hat’s open-source technologies. As a Premier partner of Red Hat and the vanguard partner in Red Hat Ascend, we will continue to maintain the industry’s best-skilled open-source delivery teams, help customers build a foundation for the future, and empower clients to achieve their transformation goals faster and with a better return on investment.


Wipro offers architecture advisory, consulting, implementation and managed services across disciplines, from IT optimization and hybrid cloud infrastructure to cloud-native development, agile integration and automation and its support.


Through Red Hat Ascend, we are reaffirming our commitment to a global and open source-aligned workforce, and to leveraging cutting-edge technologies to deliver the best possible outcomes for our customers.
