Google Cloud and KPMG recently announced a substantial expansion of their alliance to assist enterprises in integrating generative AI technologies into their operations. The collaboration will merge KPMG’s proficiency in cloud computing, data analytics and responsible AI with Google Cloud’s next-gen infrastructure and generative AI capabilities.
The partnership aims to provide practical and real-world applications of generative AI, creating value across numerous industries and empowering employees to adopt data-driven decision-making.
“Google Cloud is focused on applying generative AI to practical, real-world use cases that will create value across industries,” Thomas Kurian, CEO of Google Cloud, said in a written statement. “Through our expanded alliance with KPMG, we will accelerate the application of Google Cloud generative AI throughout the world’s largest organizations, helping them deliver innovation and empower employees, create more value from data and more.”
The companies said the alliance’s expansion is in response to the growing demand for AI and cloud-based services. As businesses seek to accelerate their digital transformation and innovation, this collaboration will equip clients with the necessary tools and expertise to fully leverage generative AI and revolutionize their operations.
“As Google Cloud clients look to embed Google’s generative AI capabilities into their business, our joint team will help them to understand how it can fit into their broader business transformation strategies,” Todd Lohr, U.S. technology consulting leader at KPMG, told VentureBeat.
This alliance extends the successful collaborations between KPMG and Google Cloud. Lohr said that previous collaborations have included implementing cloud-based intelligent conversational AI for HSBC, providing critical medical predictions from real-time data in the ICU, and offering a 360-degree customer view with advanced analytics for a global life insurer.
