Wipro Digital President Rajan Kohli On Digital Transformation And The Firm’s Biggest Growth Drivers

“If a client comes to us with a problem and they say ‘OK, what should be my next product’ or ‘Which of my products is more valuable than the others?’ the approach we take is not one a typical strategy house would take. There’s a more design-led approach where we really understand what is valuable to their end customer, and then work backwards from there,” Kohli said.

What will be the biggest drivers of Wipro’s business in 2019?

“I wish I had a crystal ball I could look into for you. Based on what we know, we have invested in four areas where we are going to double down our investment.

“I would say if we put our money where our mouth is, these are the areas. Digital. By digital I mean design, business transformation, process orchestration, systems of engagement. That’s one area we’re doubling down our investment, in types of people, talent, etc. Second is cyber security. We feel that’s going to be huge. We have seen tremendous growth in that area and as everything becomes digital, and everything becomes connected, it is bound for more and more investments.

“I’m not calling out automation because automation is a horizontal that cuts across everything. Its there in digital. I’ts there in cybersecurity. It’s there in everything that we do. Third, of course cloud.

“Depending on which report you read anywhere from 50 to 80 percent of worlds loads will be on cloud between 2021 to 2022. So I think we have seen momentum, so we are doubling down and investing in the right people who can consult with clients. Going back to ‘why’ and ‘how,’ we don’t need to tell clients they need to be on cloud. We need to tell them how they get there. How they get their applications there. What the right sequence is, what if anything they should not move to public cloud, and how do they orchestrate between multiple clouds and hybrid clouds.

“The fourth area is engineering, especially product engineering, software product engineering, because everything is becoming software. There isn’t any hardware product that isn’t driven by software. Those are the four areas and I feel bullish about the four areas.”
