Our focus will be to modernise Alights core technology assets and further automate its operations to enhance the user experience of Alights end customers, said Wipro chief executive Abidali Z. Neemuchwala.

According to the statement, the strategic partnership will enable Alight to accelerate investment in consumer-facing technologies and services across its health, wealth and cloud businesses by leveraging Wipros strengths in automation, machine learning and data analytics.
