NCS and Google Cloud announced today their strategic partnership to accelerate AI-led transformation for public and private sector organisations across Singapore, Australia, and the wider Asia Pacific (APAC) region.

Clients can tap into NCS' extensive experience and capabilities and its 100-strong APAC Google Cloud team to confidently navigate the full spectrum of innovation, security, and AI transformation. In addition, NCS has also invested in Google Cloud training for over 200 personnel as Google Cloud Certified Professionals, including professional-level certifications in Data Engineering and Cloud Architecture.

The strategic partnership, led by Tom Bernadou as the Global Google Alliance Lead at NCS, marks a new milestone in the collaboration between the two enterprises. Organisations will now be able to accelerate their digital transformation by leveraging Google Cloud's capabilities alongside NCS' end-to-end services, bridging the gap between AI and cloud technologies to deploy AI capabilities for data-driven decision making, with cloud providing the infrastructure to support AI applications at scale.

Howie Lau, Managing Partner, Corporate Development and Partnerships, NCS, said, "We are seeing a revolution in digital experiences and innovation led by the convergence of AI with cloud computing. Together, we will co-create the next generation of resilient and secure AI-powered applications that our clients need to advance their businesses and the communities they serve."

"Google Cloud is committed to providing the industry's most open cloud, as well as enterprise-grade data management and AI development platforms, to help customers accelerate their digital transformation," said Anthony McMahon, Managing Director, Partners and Alliances, Asia Pacific, Google Cloud. "Through our collaboration with NCS, organisations can take advantage of Google Cloud infrastructure and services to power new capabilities that can improve operations and create real-world value."
