Written by NTN staff

With an initial emphasis on the retail, consumer packaged goods, and health industries, the new Accenture Google Cloud Business Group will help companies with their digital acceleration.

Accenture and Google Cloud have formed the Accenture Google Cloud Business Group (AGBG), which will help companies use Google Cloud technology to deliver better customer experiences and accelerate their digital transformation journeys.

Combining Accenture’s know-how with the power of Google Cloud technology, AGBG will allow Accenture and Google Cloud 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.

There are a number of areas the unit will embrace, including building next generation business processes with artificial intelligence and machine learning based approaches to create new value across the enterprise; modernising enterprise infrastructure by migrating their workloads to the cloud and provide managed services tailored for Google Cloud Platform; bringing global scale to clients that run SAP by delivering managed SAP solutions on Google Cloud Platform; combining Google Marketing Platform data with other enterprise data sources, helping to find deeper insights and increasing customer engagement; and
reimagining work with the cloud-native productivity service.

“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.
