Accenture and Google Cloud announced the expansion of their global partnership through a reaffirmed commitment to expanding their individual talent pools.
The partnership enhances their shared capabilities, creating novel data- and AI-driven solutions, and enhancing support for clients as they forge a solid digital foundation and reimagine their businesses in the cloud.
Today, Accenture said over 13,000 knowledgeable Accenture cloud specialists with more than 5,000 Google Cloud certifications assist businesses in forming, moving, and running their operations on Google Cloud. Accenture and Google Cloud will devote greater resources going ahead to support clients running cloud-first enterprises and delivering value within condensed timeframes, building on years of successful engagement.
Google Cloud CEO Thomas Kurian stated to carry out their digital transformations and quickly realise the commercial value of their cloud investments, large, international enterprises need to hire highly qualified business transformation consultants.
“GM already has binding agreements securing all battery raw material supporting our goal of 1 million units of annual capacity in North America by the end of 2025. This new collaboration builds on those commitments as we look to secure supply through the end of the decade, while also helping continue to expand the EV market,” Kurian added.
Accenture Cloud First global lead Karthik Narain said the cloud provides businesses with countless potential to become more inventive and resilient, but the real world is full of value obstacles.
“Our expanded partnership with Google Cloud is designed to help clients build a strong digital core utilizing Google Cloud infrastructure and products in areas like cybersecurity, data analytics, application modernization and more. A strong digital core helps companies respond to change and shifting dynamics within their industry. By working with Google Cloud to expand talent and pre-build industry-specific, productized solutions, we will accelerate time to value for clients on Google Cloud, from public to edge and everything in between,” Narain stated.
