Wipro Technologies, the global IT services arm of Wipro Ltd, says it’s going into the SaaS business with w-SaaS, a platform for rapid Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) enablement of business applications using Oracle Grid Computing and Oracle application grid middleware.
The platform is supposed to help ISVs enable their existing business applications to operate in an SaaS model with minimal re-implementation, and enable traditional single-tenant apps to operate in multi-tenant mode.
Wipro says w-SaaS should cut the effort it would otherwise take in half and hence save up to 10%-20% of the total cost of ownership and improve the ISVs’ revenues.
Gartner predicts the worldwide market for software-as-a-service will reach $8 billion this year, up 21.9 % from 2008.
Wipro says Oracle is working with it to offer its technology stack to its ISV partners.
Wipro expects opportunities for this offering to open up in North America, with growth potential in the emerging markets of Latin America, Asia Pacific and Western Europe.
The energy and utilities, retail, transportation, healthcare and manufacturing sectors will be targeted verticals.
