“These solutions have played a key role in enhancing customer service & operational efficiency of Qatar Airways,” said Akbar Al Baker, CEO of Qatar Airways. “Now these already proven solutions can be brought to market and deployed in a variety of means such as licensing or Software as a Service.”

Anand Sankaran, Senior Vice President and Business Head, Global Infrastructure Services & Wipro Infotech said, “We are developing new IPs with Qatar Airways which will augment our available suite of solutions.
