Wipro Technologies, the consulting, system integration and outsourcing business of Wipro Limited, has been recognized as a winner of the prestigious Asian MAKE (Most Admired Knowledge Enterprise) Award administered by Teleos, an independent research firm based out of the UK.

Wipro was especially noted for its outstanding accomplishments in creating a knowledge-driven enterprise culture, ensuring enterprise-wide collaboration and knowledge sharing and driving organizational learning. This is the eighth time in a row that Wipro has been ranked among the Asian MAKE winners, making it the only Indian IT company to achieve this distinction.

Wipro is also the only Indian company to be granted a patent on KM by the US Patent and Trademark Office in February 2010 for “Business-aligned Knowledge Management System and Method for Creating the same”. It has been an acknowledged leader in creating organizational intellectual capital and has also consulted customers across various industry sectors such as Banking, Securities, Telecom, Infrastructure, Manufacturing and Utilities on formulating knowledge management (KM) strategies and roll-out of enterprise-wide KM programmes.

Commenting on Wipro’s inclusion among the Asian MAKE winners of 2010, Rory Chase, managing Director of Teleos said, “The Most Admired Knowledge Enterprises (MAKE) research program seeks to identify those organizations which are out-performing their peers by above average growth in intellectual capital and wealth creation. Wipro has consistently imbibed a culture of knowledge sharing and the panel acknowledges its facilitation of seamless knowledge exchange across its diverse workforce, customers and partners, leading to superior products, services and solutions.”

Mr Ved Prakash, Chief Knowledge Officer of Wipro’s Global IT Business, expressed happiness at the recognition, saying “I am delighted at Wipro being honoured with the Asian MAKE Award once again. Knowledge Management in Wipro is closely aligned to business goals and this has created visible value for our stakeholders. Our customers have benefited from enhanced knowledge retention, organizational best practices, access to wider pool of experts and cross leveraging of knowledge across different groups in Wipro. This award is indeed a testimony to our efforts in this direction over the years.”
