Wipro bags IT infrastructure deal from 7-Eleven in Australia

June 16, 2014 14:59 IST

WiproWipro has won a transformational IT applications and infrastructure contract from 7-Eleven, a leading convenience store chain in Australia.

This would lead to an organisation-wide retail process re-engineering at 7-Eleven to help launch new merchandise categories, improve the efficiency of existing ones, initiate real-time targeted promotions and easily introduce new processes during mergers and acquisitions, Wipro said.

The integrated engagement includes the upgrade, migration and consolidation of 7-Eleven's IT applications and infrastructure, which will help improve speed and agility of its go-to-market initiatives, the company said in a statement.

The project will improve business functionality at 7-Eleven through the deployment of a consolidated, real-time transactional and reporting infrastructure, it said.

Powered by the cutting-edge SAP HANA platform, it will also set the foundation for predictive customer analytics, to forecast and manage the retailer's future business requirements, the statement said.

Wipro, present in Australia since 2001, has over 1,200 employees there, servicing its clients in sectors including banking, insurance, utilities, government and retail.
