Wipro’s Acquisition History

This is at least Wipro’s third acquisition of the year. The company’s previous acquisitions both occurred in July when it bought Salesforce cloud partner 4C of Mechelen, Belgium, and Brazilian vertical market technology consulting firm IVIA Serviços.

Based in India, Wipro’s business has evolved over time to support cloud, cybersecurity and managed services opportunities. The company has emerged as a Top 10 ServiceNow partner for IT service management (ITSM) solutions.

Wipro’s Salesforce business grew in 2016 when it purchased Appirio for $500 million. Salesforce consulting partners around the world continue to be active on the M&A front.
