Software services firm Wipro has bagged a three-year IT contract from NSB Group, one of Norway’s largest transportation groups.
As part of the agreement, Wipro will implement its datacenter (BLDC) and workspace solutions and utilise its delivery framework to deliver services that will help NSB variablise their IT operations, Wipro said in a statement.
No financial details of the deal were disclosed.
The Wipro-enabled back-bone of IT infrastructure services will enable NSB to achieve greater flexibility, scalability, cost efficiency and offer an enhanced end-user experience, it said.
It will also help the company become more future-ready and competitive, in keeping with the spirit of the reforms, it added.
“This engagement is strategic to our business continuity operations… With our data centre and end user support enabled by Wipro, we can drive cost reduction and efficiencies, and most importantly, bring about joint innovations to serve our customers better,” NSB Group CIO Trude Østby Dahl said.
Headquartered in Oslo, NSB has extensive passenger transportation operations by way of rail and bus, freight by rail, property management and development and train maintenance segments.
This engagement reiterates Wipro’s continued focus and investments in Norway and the Nordic region, Wipro Head of the Nordic Region Carl-Henrik Hallstrom said.
