Accenture and Google Cloud has launched the Accenture Google Cloud Business Group (AGBG) which will help companies use Google Cloud technology to help deliver superior customer experiences.
Combining Accenture’s extensive industry knowledge with the power of Google Cloud, 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.
Gene Reznik, Accenture’s Senior Managing Director of Ecosystems & Ventures said, “The Accenture Google Cloud Business Group brings together the leading capabilities of Accenture and Google Cloud to fuel the next generation of innovations for organizations around the world.”
“Google Cloud and Accenture have a long history of delivering incredible value to our joint customers. The launch of the Accenture Google Cloud Business Group will help us supercharge those efforts as companies globally look to modernize their computing environment for today’s digital world,” said Kevin Ichhpurani, Google Cloud’s corporate vice president of business development.
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: Building next generation business processes; create relevant customer experiences; and scaling G Suite across the enterprise.
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. Accenture has approximately 1,000 practitioners trained on Google Cloud technologies and intends to more than double that number in FY19.
