Google and Uber have expanded their partnership to support Uber’s modernization of its data cloud infrastructure and reimagine the customer experience for users, drivers, and merchants.

Uber will migrate some of its most critical infrastructure onto Google Cloud and will leverage additional Google capabilities, such as Ads and Google Maps Platform, to modernize its architecture, creating an engaging experience for users, earners, and partners, and accelerate application development.

The migration will also enable Uber to access cloud services including data cloud technologies, artificial intelligence, machine learning, security, and microservices. Additionally, the companies plan to deepen their engineering collaboration to deliver new innovations.

Moving to the cloud will allow Uber with increased flexibility and scalability and is secure-by-design, with the goal of ensuring that its user experience around the world is fast, secure, and efficient.

Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google and Alphabet said: “We look forward to expanding our collaboration with Uber to deploy our cloud infrastructure, artificial intelligence, data analytics, and edge networking solutions.

“This partnership is bringing together the best of Google technology across Cloud, Maps, Ads and more to help Uber continue to improve the customer experience for their users.”

Dara Khosrowshahi, CEO of Uber, said: “Our partnership with Google centers around a shared commitment to putting customer experience at the forefront of everything we do.

“It is our job to continually improve and reimagine the types of experiences we’re providing through the Uber platform, exceeding expectations every time someone opens the app to go somewhere or get something delivered. We’re excited to deepen our work with Google to deliver new innovations that push the boundaries of what’s possible for transportation, delivery and more.”
