Wipro’s Rational Certified Trainers are expected to build on the company’s competence on Rational tools and methodologies by certifying over 150 employees on the latest Rational technologies. As part of this strategic relationship, Rational will provide regular updates on their latest methodologies and tools. The Rational-Wipro relationship is the first of its kind to focus exclusively on training and research and is part of the Talent Transformation initiative for bringing the latest in technology to Wipro employees.

The centre will provide our customers with improved predictability of software projects, and seamless implementation of large and complex projects,” says Wipro Technologies CEO Vivek Paul. “The centre will provide a constant learning continuum that will add value to our employees and the customers they serve.”

The state-of-the-art lab is well equipped with licenses of the Rational Enterprise Suite, and Rational Suite Realtime and 500 licenses for the Web Based Trainings on Rational Unified Process (RUP).
