Bengaluru-headquartered IT services provider Infosys is now a Google Cloud managed service provider. 

The expansion of its partnership with Google will now help Infosys offer its clients a complete suite of lifecycle services, backed by the existing deep cloud and experience with data analytics.

The partnership will help clients innovate and industrialise analytics better, get faster insights for revenue models and realise more savings while accelerating time to market, Infosys said in a statement. 

The Google Cloud platform will now be used by Infosys in the areas of migration, optimisation, consulting and support services for enterprises. 

Infosys will offer specific solutions for healthcare, financial services, insurance, telecom and retail industries.  

The company also announced a list of services as part of the programme including Data Cafe, a portal that can be used by enterprises for data exploration and cognitive conversations.

A marketplace where data can be managed as assets, data governance tools for hybrid cloud platforms, an experimentation toolkit for analytics and support to SAP migration are other services offered by the company. 

“Cloud has been a key focus area for our clients and Infosys, and we continue to invest in new solutions, partnerships and offerings to enable our clients to navigate their digital transformation journeys,” said David Wilson, senior vice president and head, Infosys partner ecosystem. 

Carolee Gearhart, vice president, worldwide channel sales, Google Cloud said customers were now moving mission-critical workloads away from on-premise to the cloud. 

“Infosys’ experience and knowledge in cloud migration, particularly with priority workloads such as SAP applications and in hybrid cloud deployments, will be a valuable resource for customers as they modernize business processes on Google Cloud,” added Gearhart.
