In an episode of mutual backscratching, Google and consulting firm PwC on Tuesday announced a partnership aimed at boosting the use of Google’s technology in enterprise accounts.
[company]Google[/company] needs to prove that its apps and its cloud platform are ready for primetime use by big customers, and PwC needs to show that it “gets” cloud. So the two companies are teaming up to implement Google technologies for big customers.
[company]PwC[/company] has existing relationships with [company]Amazon[/company] and [company]Microsoft[/company] in the cloud realm. And it has been working with Google for some time as well, although this is the first formal partnership between the two companies, according to a PwC spokeswoman.
Per the joint press release, the two companies will use PwC’s business experience and insights along with Google Apps and Google’s cloud and productivity tools. And, probably not coincidentally, PwC is moving 40,000 U.S. and Australian employees to Google Apps, presumably from Microsoft Office.
