Parramatta. Wipro to open data centre

Indian technology outsourcer, Wipro, which opened an office in the Parramatta CBD in 2008 with 30 staff, is attempting to break into the Australian data centre market as it increases the scope of work it carries out on behalf of local clients, which include banks, utilities and telecommunications companies. Wipro CEO, Suresh Vaswani, told The Australian Financial Review, the centre would open next year as long as a suitable site could be found. Wipro employs 1000 people in Australia; one-third of which are Australians. “The skills shortage is fairly acute here compared to other countries,” he said.
