Infosys has announced it as been accredited with the Google Cloud Partner Specialisation in the data and analytics space.

The next-generation digital services and consulting company says it achieved this recognition by successfully demonstrating end-to-end capabilities on Google Cloud, including data ingestion, streaming, querying, exploration, analysis, storage, and warehousing on cloud.

Infosys is among the top global system integrators (SI) to be accredited with this specialisation.

According to a statement from Infosys, as a qualified Google Cloud partner, the company has showcased technical proficiency, robust methodology, strong industry expertise, and proven success in specialised data and analytics solutions and service areas.

These data and analytics offerings, part of Infosys Cobalt, together with AI capabilities, help migrate workloads to Google Cloud, modernise data landscapes, and optimise costs paving the way for AI and cloud native digital transformation for enterprises.

“Businesses across virtually all segments and industries are looking for ways to drive more insights and value from their data,” says Nina Harding, chief of global partner programs - strategy at Google Cloud.

“In achieving this specialisation, Infosys has demonstrated the highest level of expertise helping customers implement data-driven strategies with Google Cloud's data and analytics products and capabilities," she says.

Satish HC, executive vice president, head of global services - data and analytics at Infosys adds, “Achieving the Google Cloud Partner Specialisation is a key milestone in the journey of Infosys' data and analytics capabilities.

"Meeting the requisite standards further strengthens the Infosys Cobalt proposition on Google Cloud," he adds.

"Infosys being an accredited partner provides delivery assurance on complex Google Cloud implementations along with Google Cloud-native accelerators and offers time-to-market advantage for enterprises.
