BANGALORE, India, June 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Wipro Technologies, the global IT services business of Wipro Limited (NYSE:WIT) today announced that it was named a leader in SOA System Integrator space in the recently published market assessment report The Forrester Wave(TM): North American System Integrators, Q2 2009 (May 2009) and The Forrester Wave(TM): EMEA System Integrators, Q2 2009 (May 2009).

To assess the state of the EMEA SOA systems integrators market and see how the providers stack up against each other, Forrester evaluated the strengths and weaknesses of top EMEA SOA systems integrators. The report quoted Wipro (and one other vendor) have made significant investments in SOA capabilities and processes and have very satisfied clients in EMEA, which has shot them to the top of the pack (with one other vendor).

The EMEA report stated Wipro's SOA consulting and integration capabilities are very strong -- the firm made some deep investments in tools and accelerators for taking much of the pain out of SOA integration projects.

The NA report highlighted Wipro's growing SOA capabilities as its continued investments in SOA enhance benefits to clients, stating Wipro's primary business comes from the systems integration work, not the business-led consulting -- but that said, some longer-term clients are finding that Wipro is emerging as a serious contender for such work. When Wipro's recent investments in SOA begin to bear fruit in client projects, it will further its position as a leading provider of SOA systems integration services. If you are looking for a reliable SOA implementation provider, then Wipro may be a good fit for you
