Addressing pricing concerns in what is a niche and specialized skill, Wipro offers a number of value-based pricing models designed around product delivery. The company leverages a broad range of Intellectual property (IP)-based platform offerings augmented by a flexible business model through Topcoder, enabling clients to tap into data science and development skills on demand. It has also extended Wipro HOLMES™ AI platform and Data Discovery Platform (DDP) to support executive stakeholder requirements, delivering business-centric and industry-oriented solutions.
