Dr. Henning Kaggerman is joining Wipro's board as of Oct 27th. I think this is great news for Wipro. It was always a great experience meeting with him at the SAP events. Henning is a big believer / proponent of the consulting or value added approach to IT services & in reducing the implementation / services costs in SAP / Packaged implementations i.e. reducing the ratio between the licenses to services fees. Will be interesting to see how his thinking influences Wipro. Some comments / excerpts:
Commenting on his appointment, Dr. Kagermann said, "I have for long admired Wipro as a company as much for its innovative approach to business as for its strong commitment to values. I am excited at the prospect of guiding the company as it prepares for its next phase of growth"
Azim Premji, Chairman, Wipro Limited said, "We are delighted to welcome Dr Kagermann to our Board. He brings in a unique combination of academic perspective, technical expertise and leadership experience. I am sure that Wipro will benefit from his rich knowledge, insights and wisdom."
