Wipro, a global IT services provider based in Bangalore, India, has more than 50 development centers and 30 offices around the world. With a client base of Fortune 1000 and Global 500 companies, practice areas include business process outsourcing, technology infrastructure services, and product engineering solutions. It's within the latter area that Wipro's VLSI & System Design Group resides, focused on the very technical aspects of high-end chip development. By August 2007, it was apparent to Santhosh Madathil, group head of Wipro's VLSI & System Design Group, and his team that a Web-based learning solution would be the next step. Like any smart customer, Madathil gave Speech-Over a try before making a decision to buy. The VLSI & System Design Group's first e-learning course was completed and posted to its intranet in December. In addition, the savings in time and effort needed to coordinate and administer training have been considerable, according to Madathil.
