Accenture recognized as a Google Cloud Partner Award Winner in
consecutive years

Accenture (NYSE:ACN) and Google Cloud today launched the
Accenture Google Cloud Business Group (AGBG), which will help companies
use Google Cloud technology to help deliver superior customer
experiences and accelerate their digital transformation journeys.

Combining Accenture's extensive industry knowledge with the power of
Google Cloud technology, AGBG will allow Accenture and Google Cloud to
develop intelligent solutions leveraging data-driven insights. The new
group is comprised of a team of specialists from both companies and will
initially focus on developing cross-industry solutions for clients in
North America, Europe and Japan.

In addition, Accenture was recognized as the 2017 Google Cloud
Platform Partner of the Year, in recognition of Accenture's demonstrated
sales, marketing, technical and support excellence to help clients take
advantage of the Google Cloud product suite to transform their
businesses.

"We're making a significant commitment to our clients and investment
with Google Cloud to provide intelligent solutions that enterprises need
to solve today's greatest business challenges and become the new leaders
in digital," said Gene Reznik, Accenture's Senior Managing Director of
Ecosystems & Ventures. "The Accenture Google Cloud Business Group brings
together the leading capabilities of Accenture and Google Cloud to fuel
the next generation of innovations for organizations around the world."

"Google Cloud and Accenture have a long history of delivering incredible
value to our joint customers. The launch of the Accenture Google Cloud
Business Group will help us supercharge those efforts as companies
globally look to modernize their computing environment for today's
digital world," said Kevin Ichhpurani, Google Cloud's corporate vice
president of business development.

With an initial emphasis on the retail, consumer packaged goods, and
health industries, AGBG will allow Accenture and Google Cloud to focus
on several areas including:

  • Build next generation business processes with artificial intelligence
    and machine learning based approaches to create new value across the
    enterprise
  • Modernize enterprise infrastructure by migrating their workloads to
    the cloud and provide managed services tailored for Google Cloud
    Platform
  • Bring global scale to clients that run SAP by delivering managed SAP
    solutions on Google Cloud Platform
  • Create relevant customer experiences by combining Google Marketing
    Platform data with other enterprise data sources, helping to find
    deeper insights and increasing customer engagement
  • Scale G Suite across the enterprise, reimagining work with the
    cloud-native productivity service that is secure, smart, and simple

The AGBG extends a longstanding alliance between the two companies. One
example is with Verizon, where Accenture is leveraging advanced
analytics and Google Cloud technology to re-imagine the customer service
experience. The solution is expected to help Verizon resolve customer
issues faster while reducing costs.

Accenture's Google Cloud Center of Excellence will become part of AGBG,
focusing on developing solutions in high-growth areas to accelerate
clients' adoption of Google Cloud.

Accenture has approximately 1,000 practitioners trained on Google Cloud
technologies and intends to more than double that number in FY19. For
