A veteran with more than 25 years of experience in the industry, he had held key leadership roles at Tata Consultancy Services before joining Wipro. He currently lives in Dallas, Texas, in the US with his wife and three children, and travels to India for key meetings. In an exclusive interview with THE WEEK, Neemuchwala talks about his vision and how Wipro is geared to deal with the challenges. Excerpts:

Q/ You have been working on a largely successful revival effort at Wipro. What is next?

A/ When I took over in 2016, we identified six areas of transformation. We have made tremendous progress in most of those areas, such as driving growth in the digital business, improving the ability to cross-sell, localisation in key geographies and deployment of Wipro HOLMESTM (a cognitive automation tool) in our large customer accounts. My current focus is on creating a funnel of large transformational deals and accelerating our client mining process.

Q/ Wipro has been known for being strong in the BFSI (Banking Financial services and Insurance) segment. Isn’t it a conventional and slow-growth segment?
