Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) (NASDAQ:GOOG) got involved in a partnership with the consulting firm, Pricewaterhouse Coopers, marking an extension to a global deal signed by the search giant in October last year. Under this Indian partnership, the two companies will jointly work on the Digital India projects, as well as, on the large enterprise deals, says a report from the Economic Times. Also, the association is aimed at obtaining large e-governance projects and expanding the cloud service sales in India.
PwC to go ‘All Google’
The country manager of Google for Work India told ET, “We’re delighted to be able to combine PricewaterhouseCoopers’ rich client relationships and unparalleled industry knowledge with Google’s breadth of technology across cloud, applications and mobile.”
The manager, further, claimed that both the companies seek to facilitate Indian firms with solutions aimed at providing transformation using technology. Such projects are already being looked after by a team comprising of 30 members nominated by PwC. Moreover, another group comprising of 1800 people will be developing industry-specific solutions using the platforms from Google.
In regard with this, Arnab Basu, a technology practice partner at PwC India, suggested that the company is aiming at providing advisory services along with industry specific solutions through its partnership with Google. Moreover, in an attempt to make certain the firm’s abilities to support Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) (NASDAQ:GOOG), PwC India has decided to go ‘All Google’ under which all the employees are being encouraged to use Google products.
India, a big market for foreign firms
Small and medium businesses in India are at the focus of PwC, which is already working on developing some of the solutions and additional applications. These efforts will assist not just the government companies and public sector, but, as well as, the different verticals in the industry such as financial services, retail, pharma and healthcare, added Basu.
Google has successfully made its mark among the small and medium businesses in India, but unfortunately the big businesses still seem to prefer Microsoft products over those of Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) (NASDAQ:GOOG). Last week, the software giant announced its plans to work with KPMG, in order, to impart new methods of innovative solutions and services regarding data analytics, cloud compliance and transformation along with business solutions. Both Google and Microsoft, have been making extra efforts to be a part of Digital India, a Rs. 1.13 lakh crore initiative aimed at transforming the country into a connected economy.
