Under the agreement, Wipro will be MMG’s strategic partner to deliver the miner's integrated business management programme over three years.
MMG is one of the world's largest producers of zinc as well as a substantial producer of copper, lead, gold and silver.
“As a part of the strategic relationship, Wipro will work with MMG to transform its operations, by standardising and simplifying its business processes and implementing a new SAP platform that will effectively support MMG's future growth and profitability,” Wipro said this week.
MMG, as a part of the integrated programme, plans to adopt a common operating platform across all assets to derive value in current and future operations.
Wipro's natural resources vertical covering metals and mining, agriculture and forestry industry segments is a part of its energy, natural resources and utilities strategic business unit (SBU).
It addresses the core industry concerns of efficiency and optimisation in operations and management through consulting, engineering, IT and BPO services, while providing solutions to customers for sustainable use of resources.
Wipro Technologies also confirmed that the company is expanding its infrastructure as a service (IaaS) capabilities to create a global utility computing platform.
The IaaS portfolio will be marketed as Wipro iStructure services, and will be the foundation for offering a broad set of infrastructure, application and business process outsourcing solutions in an “as-a-service” model.
