NTT DATA UK&I, a global innovator in business consulting and IT services, has extended its pan-EMEA partnership with Google Cloud to the UK and Ireland.
As a Google Premier Partner – the highest status a Google Cloud Partner can achieve – the alliance further strengthens NTT DATA UK&I’s multi-cloud capabilities to create even greater value for end customers and partners.
The expanded partnership enables NTT DATA UK&I to work with Google Cloud on go-to-market strategies to provide consulting, implementation and managed services to customers seeking digital transformation. It will improve NTT DATA’s ability to assess cloud maturity, create a strategic migration plan and build a cloud transformation that helps maximize business value by leveraging Google Cloud’s responsive, performance-driven digital technology.
While customers across a range of industries will benefit from the partnership, both NTT DATA and Google Cloud have a strong heritage in the UK telecommunications, financial services and public sector. The combined expertise in these sectors will deliver unmatched results for clients in these industries.
Mike Jones, VP and head of partners and alliances at NTT DATA UK&I, said: “We have recently built out our hyperscaler relationships and invested heavily in strategic alliances, so we are delighted to announce this new partnership with Google Cloud in UK&I, as a global tier 1 partner. Through all our partnerships, we are focused on increasing value for our customers. Working with Google Cloud expands our expertise across industries and enables us to deliver even greater innovation. We are very much aligned in our approaches to R&D and leading edge technology, so we look forward to where the partnership can take our customers.”
As a Snowflake partner, NTT DATA also brings the powerful capabilities of Snowflake to Google Cloud. NTT DATA’s system integrator experience combined with its Snowflake knowledge will create added value for end customers and accelerate their Google Cloud journeys.
Gareth Lyon, head of data and intelligence alliances, NTT DATA UK&I, added: “This partnership enables NTT DATA to be a true multi-cloud systems integrator with hyperscale capabilities. The enormous capabilities that we can now deliver through the power from three – NTT DATA, Snowflake and Google Cloud – is an exciting proposition for both customers and partners and further enables us to build solutions that solve problems.”
