Knowledge-driven Culture Leads Wipro to Most Admired Award

10/20/2003 - Wipro Technologies (NYSE:WIT) has won the 2003 Asian Most Admired Knowledge Enterprise (MAKE) Award. Wipro Technologies was recognized in the 2nd annual Asian MAKE study for creating a corporate-wide knowledge-driven culture and delivering knowledge-based products/services/solutions. The award was presented on October 15, 2003 in a glittering ceremony which was part of the World Knowledge Forum at Seoul, Korea.

As part of its approach to knowledge management, Wipro has successfully used its inherent strengths in people and processes to evolve an IT-enabled framework cutting across the boundaries of culture, content, communities and business processes. In 2002, Wipro had won KM World’s KM Reality Award for best practices in Knowledge Management. Wipro has now set-up a dedicated practice around Collaboration & KM, and started offering solutions to clients in areas like knowledge portals, expertise management systems, intelligent agents and executive dashboards.

According to Rory Chase, managing director of Teleos, which conducts MAKE, "These organizations have been recognized as global leaders in effectively transforming enterprise knowledge into wealth-creating ideas, products and solutions. Organizations dedicated to growth through innovation and knowledge management create shareholder value twice as fast as their competitors, according to Teleos' new "2003 Asian Most Admired Knowledge Enterprises (MAKE) Study."

"Having a unified framework has helped build a cohesive knowledge base across the company accessible to the entire user community in Wipro and the benefits of this system are passed on to our customers. Our knowledge management framework captures our learnings and experiences of all our projects which allow us to share best practices with our clients. Winning this award is a validation of our approach to Collaboration and Knowledge Management at Wipro", said Sambuddha Deb, Chief Quality Officer of Wipro Technologies.

The MAKE research program, conducted in association with The KNOW Network, consists of the annual Global MAKE study -- the international benchmark for world-class knowledge-driven organizations -- and regional/national MAKE studies.
