C3 AI and Google Cloud have partnered for the first time to assist organizations across multiple industries in applying artificial intelligence (AI). C3 AI’s enterprise AI applications running on Google Cloud will be co-sold by both companies’ sales teams. Using C3 AI Services on Google Cloud, customers can run C3 AI on the cleanest cloud in the industry, including industry-specific AI applications, C3 AI Suite®, C3 AI CRM, and C3 AI Ex Machina.
Thomas Kurian, CEO at Google Cloud, said, “Google Cloud and C3 AI share the vision that artificial intelligence can help businesses address real-world challenges and opportunities across multiple industries. We believe that by delivering C3 AI’s applications on Google Cloud, and by partnering to address specific industry use cases with AI, we can help customers benefit more quickly and at greater scale.”
C3 AI will continue to work closely with Google Cloud so that its applications leverage multiple Google Cloud products and capabilities, including Google BigQuery, Google Kubernetes Engine, and Vertex AI, making it easier for them to build and deploy machine learning models more quickly.
Ritu Jyoti, group vice president, AI and Automation Research at IDC, said, “Organizations across industries are accelerating their digital transformations with cloud-based solutions, purpose-built to deliver specific business outcomes. This new partnership between C3 AI and Google Cloud represents an acceleration of this trend, as the two companies partner to expand the application of AI-powered solutions in the enterprise.”
The enterprise AI applications developed by C3 AI will be built on a common platform of Google Cloud’s infrastructure, artificial intelligence, machine learning (ML), and data analytics capabilities, and will be interoperable with Google Cloud’s current and future industry solutions.
Jim Snabe, former co-CEO, SAP AG, said, “This is fundamentally game-changing for the hyperscale computing market. Google Cloud is changing the competitive discussion from CPU seconds and gigabyte-hours to enterprise AI applications producing enormous value for customers, shareholders, and society at large.”
