Two years ago, at KPIT we started our digital journey by envisioning Smart Enterprise. Smart Enterprise consisting of Smart Campus, Smart Collaboration, Smart business applications, Smart Insights, Smart workforce, Smart relationships and Smart Infrastructure. We have made substantial progress in all the areas. We are early adopter of Enterprise Hybrid cloud and Nutanix technologies are core to our cloud infrastructure.
We have adopted softwaredefined approach and built digital infrastructure consisting of Hyperconverged infra in Datacentre, Software defined security and campus network. We started integrating diverse infrastructure solutions on cloud platform giving more power to developers in dynamic provisioning and managing infrastructure from code. We have also built intelligent ERP using SAP S/4 Hana as our System of records which is integrated with KPIT’s system of engagement and system of intelligence built using cloud native technologies.
