Wipro Chooses Oracle Cloud to Help Speed Digitalization of Air Cargo Processes

Wipro, a global provider of information technology solutions, consulting, and business process outsourcing services, has selected Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) to power its next-generation Cargo Reservations, Operations, Accounting, and Management Information System (CROAMIS) Application suite.

As a result, Wipro would be able to offer its CROAMIS solution to clients all around the world as part of Wipro FullStride Cloud Services, assisting in the speedier modernization of the air cargo business in the face of rising demand for swift cargo transportation services. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) was chosen by Wipro because of its performance, high availability, built-in security, and cost-effectiveness.

Wipro is an Oracle Cloud Service partner. Wipro has a comprehensive portfolio of services, a presence on six continents, and over 220,000 employees. The company uses cognitive computing, hyper-automation, robotics, cloud, analytics, and emerging technologies to help clients across multiple industries, including travel and transportation, adapt to the digital world.

“There has been significant change in the supply chain, particularly in key industries such as pharma and e-commerce, which need goods to be moved rapidly around the world. While this has led to air cargo gaining share, it has also created the need for this industry to fast-track its modernization through the use of cloud and other digital technologies,” said Gopi Krishnan, Vice President and Managing Partner, Domain & Consulting Services, Consumer Sector, Wipro. “Now, with CROAMIS on OCI, we will further strengthen our position as the technology partner of choice for many air cargo organizations. We envision its use will help our customers to scale faster, achieve increased business efficiencies, accelerate their pace of innovation, benefit from greater security, and reduce their data storage and outbound data transfer cost.”

“Now, with CROAMIS on OCI, we will further strengthen our position as the technology partner of choice for many air cargo organizations,” said Gopi Krishnan, VP and Managing Partner, Domain & Consulting Services, Consumer Sector, Wipro.

Wipro has moved its CROAMIS application to Oracle Cloud and will offer it as a modular SaaS solution based on a mix of Oracle Exadata Cloud Service and Oracle Exadata Database Cloud Service, taking use of OCI’s “fast, flexible, and affordable” computing capability. As a result, companies would be able to automate the entire air cargo lifecycle, including cargo capacity planning, sales, revenue management, cargo ground handling operations, warehouse management, freighter and charters, customer services, cargo revenue accounting, and billing, more quickly and easily.

“Developing and deploying commercial software can be a complicated and costly proposition,” said Hwa Cheong Wong, VP-ISV, JAPAC, Oracle. “To do this successfully in the cloud, independent software vendors (ISVs) need extreme speed, security, and scalability, as well as cost transparency. That’s why an increasing number of the world’s top ISVs, such as Wipro, are turning to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. Migrating its business-critical CROAMIS application to Exadata Cloud Service and Database Cloud Service using OCI’s flexible compute capabilities, will enable Wipro to achieve levels of performance and economics that exceed that of any other cloud platform and, in turn, deliver a better experience for its customers worldwide.”

By the end of 2021, the Wipro CROAMIS Application will be accessible on the Oracle Cloud Marketplace, making it simpler for air cargo companies to take use of these new services, modernize their business processes, and take advantage of better cloud economics.

“Global supply chain dynamics have gone through a significant transformation due to the pandemic. The gap between demand and capacity has been a serious issue during the pandemic, and this has added tremendous cost pressure on the industry,” said Sanchit Vir Gogia, Chief Analyst, Founder & CEO, Greyhound Research. “Moreover, the move to eCommerce demands goods to be moved quickly, which adds extra pressure on cargo operators. As a result, these operators are looking at digital technologies that allow a more unified working across the value chain and reduce administrative burden. Cloud is the natural choice for such digital transformation engagements to help improve the speed of innovation and reduce costs.”
