The Spirit of Wipro is the core of Wipro...
The Spirit is rooted in current reality, but it also represents what Wipro aspires to be thus making it future active. The Spirit is an indivisible synthesis of all three statements. It means manifesting Intensity to Win, acting with sensitivity and being unyielding on integrity all the time.
•   Intensity to win
•   Act with Sensitivity
•   Unyielding Integrity
Make customers successful.   Team, Innovate, Excel.

•   This is the desire to stretch, to achieve that which seems beyond our grasp. This is aiming for maximum. This is the ardour to do our best, the hunger to be the best. This is the devotion to challenging our limits, it is about realizing our potential, and about expanding our potential.
•   It is not about winning at all costs. It is not about winning every time. It is not about winning at the expense of others.
•   It is about working together to create synergy. It is realising that I win when my team wins; my team wins when Wipro wins; and Wipro wins when its customers win, when its stakeholders win.
•   It is about innovating all the time. It is a continuous endeavour to do better than last time.
•   It is the Spirit of fortitude, the Spirit of never letting go... ever.

As we enter the second decade of the 21st Century, change seems to be the only constant. This dynamic means that businesses are facing challenges and opportunities which are very different to what they were a decade ago or even a year ago. The world of tomorrow is one where uncertainty and fierce global micro-competition is going to be the norm. Rightly so, the world is looking up to innovation in the triangle of technology, sociology and the environment to help them deal with these changes.
This innovation is coming to the fore in various hues and has shifted from the core to the edge of the enterprise. This is being driven by the rise of trends like analytics, mobility, cloud and as-a-service, even as the future will see newer technologies such as machine-to-machine (M2M) communication and natural user interface (NUI) fast becoming mainstream.
In this fast changing world, Wipro believes it can leverage on its institutionalized innovation culture to push the boundaries for delivering solutions that provide enhanced value and direct impact for our customers.
This culture has brought to the fore innovations like India's most powerful supercomputer, a cost-effective Base Terminal Station designed for GSM networks in underserved markets, a mobile switching router for emerging markets, connected home concept and Wipro Energy Manager that uses M2M communication, among others. Taking forward our legacy in pioneering the ODC concept, Wipro has also developed application-based innovations like Flex and Cigma delivery models which are service-based as opposed to resource-based.
Wipro is also partnering with European research institute IMEC to co-innovate and develop next-generation intelligent systems based on nanoelectronics and aimed at emerging markets through an initiative called Applied Research in Intelligent Systems Engineering (ARISE).
Wipro works with alliance partners to offer compelling business propositions for the customers. Our alignment with the technology leaders across various industries enables us to provide our customers with world-class solutions that transform their business processes.

Sustainability at Wipro is all about good citizenship
It stems from the belief that corporations are socio-economic citizens and that their objectives have to be congruent with society's goals. Today, they wield significant capacity to influence social issues, i.e. “power to do good”. This is a responsibility and must manifest in thoughtful and deliberate set of initiatives, not in charity. These must reflect the same level of rigor & strategic thinking as in business initiatives.
Wipro believes it must try to, and can make (some) lasting impact, towards creating a just, equitable, humane & sustainable society. This is reason enough to act.
•   Provide leadership in thought & action on key societal issues
•   Need to respond to immediate issues of current generation
•   Need to work towards building a good society for future generations

•   Wipro Cares
•   Wipro Applying Thought in Schools
•   Mission10X
•   eco eye
•   earthian
