Google, Accenture launch business group to help healthcare clients transition to cloud

Google Cloud and management consulting firm Accenture teamed up on a new venture to help companies implement services from Google Cloud.

The Accenture Google Cloud Business Group's July 25 launch focuses on the healthcare, consumer packaged goods and retail industries. As part of the partnership, Google Cloud and Accenture plan to develop a range of data-driven solutions, such as business processes that leverage artificial intelligence and services to help organizations migrate their workloads to the cloud.

The business group comprises a team of specialists from both companies, who will collaborate to develop cross-industry solutions for clients in North America, Europe and Japan. Accenture, which already has an estimated 1,000 practitioners trained on Google Cloud technologies, intends to more than double that staff during fiscal year 2019.

Under the agreement, Accenture's existing Google Cloud Center of Excellence will become part of the business group.

"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," Gene Reznik, senior managing director of ecosystems and ventures at Accenture, said in the firm's news release.
