Capgemini and Google Cloud to create data and AI CoE


Capgemini and Google Cloud have announced that they will be majorly expanding their long-standing strategic partnership in data analytics and artificial intelligence (AI). This is in hopes of creating a global Generative AI Google Cloud Center of Excellence (CoE) to help enterprises realize the full potential of AI technologies.

The new CoE aims to help clients advance their business transformation goals, enhance engagement with customers and accelerate value creation from AI investments. 

Google Cloud’s generative AI will aid Capgemini in developing a library of more than 500 industry use cases. The use cases will provide a blueprint for clients to successfully identify, deploy and maximize generative AI capabilities to achieve their business transformation objectives. The first wave of 100 use cases will initially focus on the financial services, insurance, retail and automotive sectors. In the next wave, this will expand to all industries, reaching more than 500 use cases within the next 24 months.

Capgemini will also work with enterprise clients to deploy generative AI at scale by using responsible AI frameworks and purpose-built security tools to ensure that generative AI is implemented safely and securely.

Additionally, the partnership’s global Generative AI Google Cloud CoE will work with clients to enable bespoke AI strategies, which can create new revenue streams, transform customer experiences, increase productivity and improve business efficiency.

Aiman Ezzat, CEO of Capgemini, said, “Capgemini will bring its deep industry expertise and considerable experience in generative AI to help clients realize the benefits of Google Cloud’s generative AI solutions and uncover new sources of business value. With this new Generative AI Google Cloud Center of Excellence, we will leverage our leading capabilities in business transformation, infrastructure, applications, data, AI and engineering, in an array of industry-specific use cases and accelerators, to assist clients in their digital and sustainable transformation journeys.”

“Generative AI has the potential to fundamentally improve how businesses operate in every industry,” said Thomas Kurian, CEO of Google Cloud. “Capgemini has helped some of our largest customers transform their businesses with Google Cloud’s data analytics and AI, and the launch of the Generative AI Google Cloud Center of Excellence will provide businesses with the expertise needed to successfully use this breakthrough technology safely and responsibly.”
