Bangalore, Oct 17 (ANI/Business Wire India): Wipro technologies, the global IT services business of Wipro limited today announced that it has been recognized as a winner of the Asian Most Admired Knowledge Enterprises (MAKE) awards 2008 and finished third overall, a rise from a ranking of 15th from the previous year.
Wipro was ranked first in the 'Transforming enterprise knowledge into shareholder value'. It was also ranked high in the 'Developing knowledge workers through senior management' and in the 'Managing customer knowledge' categories. This is the sixth time in a row that Wipro Technologies has been recognized as an Asian MAKE winner.
The MAKE winners are chosen by a panel of fortune 500 business executives and leading knowledge management and intellectual capital experts after an initial short-listing based on nominations by the panel.
The MAKE study is part of Teleos' MAKE research programme. The Asian MAKE study was established in 2002 to recognize organizations founded in Asia for their ability to create shareholder wealth (or in the case of public and non-profit organizations, increasing societal capital) by transforming new as well as existing enterprise knowledge and intellectual capital into superior products/services/solutions.
"MAKE winners have continually delivered knowledge management and transformational knowledge within and outside of their enterprises." said Rory Chase, Managing Director, Teleos - MAKE "Wipro Technologies is consistently delivering on their promise of high quality services and by winning this award for the sixth time in a row, has proved itself to be a knowledge driven organization geared to achieve greater benchmarks in Knowledge Enterprise."
Expressing happiness on the recognition for Wipro's knowledge initiatives, Sambuddha Deb, Chief Global Delivery Officer, Wipro Technologies said, "We are honored to be recognized by this award. At Wipro, we strongly believe in developing key business processes that focus on creating and sharing of knowledge with our customers. This helps us provide "continuous value" to our customers through a combination of best practices and unique delivery models. It is a delight to be recognized for this practice through this award."
Wipro technologies has also made it to the 2008 Global MAKE Awards which would be announced later during this year.
Started in 1998, the annual MAKE survey is now the leading benchmark for the world's best knowledge-based organizations. Each year, the survey identifies organizations that stand above the crowd in the knowledge economy. Wipro Technologies has been awarded the Asian Make awards for the past six years, and in last year Wipro was inducted into the MAKE hall of fame.
