Google Cloud announced it has been selected by ABB to further expand the cloud footprint of its Information System (IS) services. The Swiss headquartered global technology provider has chosen Google Cloud as part of the organisation’s ‘Rationalising IT Operations’ (code named: Program RIO) initiative, which seeks to further increase the scalability and resilience of its infrastructure services to all ABB businesses.

Google Cloud will collaborate with ABB’s hosting services team to layout an optimised cloud migration that is tailoured to meet the IS needs of ABB businesses. This will be rolled out in a structured way and in-line with ABB’s new operating model. The migration signals ABB’s increased focus on cloud adoption, and optimising its data centres’ capacity.

Google Cloud’s data science, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) capabilities will be leveraged to simplify and improve the IS quality assurance via automation and consolidation of identified services housed in ABB’s strategic data centres and remote sites, with a cloud-first approach.

“ABB is a global technology leader that has been a Fortune 500 company for many years,” says Dominik Wee, managing director global manufacturing and industrial at Google Cloud. “We’re thrilled about the opportunity for Google Cloud to help ABB in its journey toward powering its information systems services in the cloud, as the company heads towards a more digitised future.”
