BANGALORE, India & EAST BRUNSWICK, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#IBM–Wipro Limited (NYSE: WIT, BSE: 507685, NSE: WIPRO), a leading global
information technology, consulting and business process services
company, today announced it is delivering analytics-based insights for
specific industries with the Data Discovery Platform, its newest big
data analytics-as-a-service solution. Built with IBM BigInsights and IBM
dashDB and developed on Bluemix, IBM’s cloud platform, the solution
accelerates insight-driven decision making through pre-built
applications for specific industries, such as banking and financial
services, retail, energy, education and manufacturing.

In many organizations, internal and external data exist in silos across
the company, making it difficult and expensive to collect and analyze.
The Data Discovery Platform helps businesses unlock the true value of
their structured and unstructured data to deliver insights customized to
the customer’s industry sector.

Wipro and IBM developers collaborated on the solution which is available
in an outcome-based ‘pay-per-insight’ cloud delivery model. It has been
customized for a number of specific industries and their associated
overall processes, including:

  • Banking and financial services to reduce customer
    attrition, forecast sales volume, segment customers, create revenue
    models and predict claims subrogation
  • Education to improve graduation rates by identifying positive
    and negative academic and non-academic influencers and creating
    student risk profiles
  • IT to monitor data operations and predict batch delays and
    failures in real time
  • Energy to detect anomalies, predict fraud and profitability in
    energy trading
  • Marketing to automate, configure and integrate social feed
  • Manufacturing to measure the health of individual assets and
    develop predictive maintenance schedules
  • Mining to predict maintainability of assets and reduce risks in
    work environments
  • Retail to understand customer behavior inside stores using WiFi
    logs and iBeacon traces, recommend product bundling and identify
    factors influencing store performance.

The Data Discovery Platform offers a unique value proposition driving an
accelerated time to market for insights, resulting in augmented and
better decision-making. The solution’s modular, approach, coupled with
machine learning, natural language processing, visualization and stream
computing capability enable flexible and scalable responses to dynamic
business requirements.

“Today’s businesses, without exception, have to be disruptive. Wipro’s
Data Discovery Platform, built on IBM’s Cognitive and Cloud Platforms
offers clients immediate access to insights giving them a competitive
edge. IBM and Wipro are working together to help our customers discover
the value of their existing data while leveraging leading-edge cloud and
cognitive technologies,” said Pallab Deb, Vice President &
Global Head – Analytics, Wipro Limited.

“As businesses transition into cognitive enterprises, it is not enough
to simply leverage big data platforms. Companies need to generate true,
business changing insights that can pull data from wherever it might be
stored,” said Stephen Crain, Business Unit Executive, Global System
Integrators, IBM.
“By incorporating IBM BigInsights and IBM dashDB
into Wipro’s Data Discovery Platform, Wipro clients will be able to
accelerate their transformation into cognitive enterprises.”

In October 2015, Wipro and IBM announced a
collaboration wherein Wipro would use the IBM Bluemix cloud platform for
the agile creation and deployment of mobile, analytics and machine
learning solutions for clients around the world. The Data Discovery
Platform is one of the solutions from Wipro to be built on the Bluemix
