This achievement marks the fourth consecutive year Deloitte has been globally recognised as the Google Cloud Services Partner of the Year.
Deloitte has received two top honours from Google Cloud, including 2020 Google Cloud Global Services Partner of the Year and the first-ever 2020 Public Sector Partner of the Year. These awards recognise Deloitte’s innovative perspectives, outstanding customer service and best-in-class use of Google Cloud products and services.
“The pandemic rapidly accelerated technology adoption globally out of sheer necessity and safety. Our response leveraged Google Cloud technology to help identify potential outbreaks, accelerated the science required to respond, including contact tracing, and processed unemployment checks to those in need. Deloitte and Google Cloud found ways to keep businesses running, and today, we see many thriving across life sciences, health care, retail, financial services, government and public services as a result,” said Tom Galizia, Deloitte Global Chief Commercial Officer, Alphabet Google, Deloitte Consulting LLP. “These two recognitions are an honour, but the real reward for our teams is the impact we achieved and the knowledge that we will continue to address the world’s biggest problems and brightest opportunities together.”
With over 3,000 practitioners devoted to its Alphabet Google services and a growing portfolio of Google Cloud-native solutions, Deloitte and Google Cloud led digital customer transformations across all regions globally. 2020 commercial marquee client case studies included Commerzbank, Bed Bath & Beyond, PayPal and Rewe. Drawing on the industry, functional, and technical experience within Deloitte and the Google Cloud networks, the alliance developed over 20 solutions to meet market demand for cloud and analytics tools, including industry analytics and AI, security, SAP on Google Cloud, infrastructure/application modernisation and productivity-collaboration solutions.
“We’re excited to recognise Deloitte as our Global Services Partner of the Year as well as our Public Sector Partner of the Year, based on their agility and responsiveness delivering critical services and support for businesses and institutions during an unprecedented time,” said Kevin Ichhpurani, Corporate Vice President, Global Partner Ecosystem at Google Cloud. “Throughout 2020, Deloitte led important initiatives to help government agencies and businesses alike support constituents, securely virtualise workforces, enable better contact tracing, reconfigure supply chains, and to help retailers quickly spin up e-commerce solutions to serve customers around the world.”
Selection as the first-ever 2020 Public Sector Partner of the Year underscores the strength of the relationship with Google Cloud and the breadth of solutions the two organisations offer public sector clients. For example, HealthPrism™, a back-to-back ACT-IAC award-winning predictive population health analytics platform, was reconfigured to help states identify and support populations at greater risk for various health conditions, including COVID-19. During the pandemic, HealthPrism™ was offered on a limited, pro-bono basis as part of Deloitte’s Health Equity Institute commitment to combat health inequities meaningfully.
Bringing valuable health risk data upstream helps governments and organisations deliver essential services and use critical data to inform decision-making to improve the distribution of personal protective equipment (PPE) and vaccine access. Deloitte led several campaigns to distribute PPE and informational resources to counter COVID-19. More than 1.7 million masks and hand sanitisers were distributed based on data provided by Deloitte and HealthPrism™.
“Google Cloud-enabled, Deloitte-delivered transformations have helped the world respond, recover, and thrive through the global pandemic,” said Punit Renjen, Deloitte Global CEO. “One cannot underestimate the ripple effect of this relationship. The world is just beginning to imagine the possibilities – the many ways that technology can enable businesses to leverage their respective strengths to produce impact that’s greater than the sum of their individual parts.”
