Azim Premji chaired Wipro has bagged a multi-year contract with UK-based Metro Bank to deliver and transform latter's testing and environment management Services.

The IT major said it will leverage its digital and quality engineering capabilities to drive transformation through automation, service virtualisation and DevSecOps enablement.
