Accenture and Google Cloud have launched the Accenture Google Cloud Business Group (AGBG), which aims to help companies use Google Cloud technology to help deliver better customer experiences and accelerate their digital transformation journeys.
Accenture says AGBG will allow the two companies to develop intelligent solutions leveraging data-driven insights. The new group is comprised of a team of specialists from both companies and will initially focus on developing cross-industry solutions for clients in North America, Europe and Japan.
With an initial emphasis on the retail, consumer packaged goods, and health industries, AGBG will allow Accenture and Google Cloud to focus on several areas including:
- Build next generation business processes with artificial intelligence and machine learning based approaches to create new value across the enterprise
- Modernize enterprise infrastructure by migrating their workloads to the cloud and provide managed services tailored for Google Cloud Platform
- Bring global scale to clients that run SAP by delivering managed SAP solutions on Google Cloud Platform
- Create relevant customer experiences by combining Google Marketing Platform data with other enterprise data sources, helping to find deeper insights and increasing customer engagement
- Scale G Suite across the enterprise, reimagining work with the cloud-native productivity service that is secure, smart, and simple
Accenture’s Google Cloud Center of Excellence will become part of AGBG, focusing on developing solutions in high-growth areas to accelerate clients’ adoption of Google Cloud.
“We’re making a significant commitment to our clients and investment with Google Cloud to provide intelligent solutions that enterprises need to solve today’s greatest business challenges and become the new leaders in digital,” said Gene Reznik, Accenture’s senior managing director of Ecosystems & Ventures. “The AGBG brings together the leading capabilities of Accenture and Google Cloud to fuel the next generation of innovations for organizations around the world.”
