Wipro Limited (NYSE: WIT, BSE: 507685, NSE: WIPRO), a global leader in information technology, consulting and business process services, today announced it has signed an agreement to acquire Ampion, an Australian supplier cybersecurity, DevOps and quality engineering services.
Ampion was born from the merger of IT service providers “Revolution IT” and “Shelde”. Revolution IT was an IT services company in Australia founded in 2004 and Shelde was a digital IT security company founded in 2010 in Australia. The merged entity, Ampion, is headquartered in Melbourne, offices in Sydney, Brisbane and a Zone 3 facility in Canberra.
The Australian market is experiencing significant disruption as a result of the adoption of digital capabilities related to cloud, DevOps, analytics and resilience, in enterprises and public sector entities. The combined offerings of Wipro and Ampion, fueled by engineering transformation, DevOps and security consulting services will bring scalability and market agility to meet growing customer demands.
Wipro’s new operating model emphasizes strategic investments in targeted geographies, proximity to customers, agility, scale and location. The acquisition of Ampion is an important step for Wipro in this direction and strengthens engagement with customers and stakeholders in Australia and New Zealand (ANZ). Wipro has been in the ANZ market for over two decades with strong customer relationships across all industry sectors and localized domain and delivery capabilities. Today, Wipro is well known for its differentiated technology solutions, and has also been recognized as a “Top Employer” in Australia for two consecutive years.
“I am delighted to welcome Ampion to the Wipro family.

We see Ampion as a complementary force that will help us expand our footprint and accelerate our journey in the Asia-Pacific region, ”said NS Bala, CEO – APMEA, Wipro Limited.
“Our customers, employees and the entire market ecosystem will benefit immensely from the synergies of Ampion and Wipro’s combined portfolio of transformation offerings,” said Jamie Duffield, CEO, Ampion. “We believe that Ampion’s proven experience, talent, capabilities and customer credentials in ANZ, coupled with Wipro’s global scale, technology leadership, and deep understanding of the field and delivery, will make from us a really great team.
