Wipro Infotech, the IT arm of Wipro, said that it has bagged three projects from the governments of Maharashtra, West Bengal and Gujarat for setting up data centres.
"The three prestigious wins is an endorsement of Wipro's leadership position in the domestic IT space based on strong technology expertise, process excellence and superior execution capabilities. With this, Wipro is well-positioned to win other state data centre (SDC) projects as well," Wipro said in a statement.
Financial details of the deal were, however, not disclosed.
The Maharashtra project entails commissioning and managing a State Data Center spread across about 3,000 sq feet for a period of five years, while the West Bengal project is for designing, building and management of the data center (IT and non-IT components) for five years.
The Gujarat project is for upgradation and commissioning of the Gujarat SDC, which will also act as a disaster Recovery site for four other mini data centers already present in the state. These centres providing online services to urban and rural citizens like for payment of taxes or simply filing a complaint.
"The Government is focusing its energies in improving the delivery of services to citizens, transparently managing and reporting on public expenditure and improving the effectiveness of interactions within various government entities," Ranbir Singh, Head of the Government Vertical of Wipro said.
The projects assume significance with SDCs emerging as one of the key elements of the core infrastructure required for the National e-Governance Plan (NeGP). Once integrated with other infrastructure projects like State Wide Area Network (SWAN) and Common Service Centers (CSC), these data centres would form the framework for roll out of various eGovernment services for citizens and the Government.
