Deloitte and Google Cloud today announced a major expansion of their decade-long alliance relationship to help bring Google Cloud's advanced Generative AI capabilities to enterprises in every industry. Deloitte's rapidly expanding Generative AI practice will build and scale solutions to help address the growing demand for Google Cloud's Generative AI capabilities and help solve some profound business challenges with its AI technologies.
Deloitte is already leveraging Google Cloud's AI capabilities and large language models (LLMs) to develop industry-leading solutions that help enable businesses to be more effective and efficient. These solutions will address significant challenges facing enterprises today and are designed with ease-of-use in mind so that developers, employees and IT teams can immediately see value from their AI investments.
Deloitte's Generative AI practice will utilize a number of Google Cloud technologies to bring new solutions to market, including Vertex AI and the PaLM Foundation Model, along with Generative AI Studio and the open-source and third-party models accessible through Google Cloud's Model Garden. These solutions will help maximize Generative AI's potential for clients and provide tangible benefits to their workforces, such as analysts who work in financial services and marketers building campaigns for consumer businesses. With Google Cloud's open, extensive portfolio of Generative AI capabilities, Deloitte has the resources required to build new business applications with Generative AI and dramatically improve those that already exist within an organization.
"We are seeing increasing demand from clients to help them advance their businesses through new and innovative AI capabilities," said Jason Girzadas, managing principal, businesses, global and strategic services and CEO Elect, Deloitte US. "Google Cloud offers Generative AI capabilities that provide meaningful, real-world value to enterprises that will be a platform for industry and functional advancements."
