SINGAPORE AND MELBOURNE, DECEMBER 07, 2023 — 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.

NCS has also integrated its Google Cloud expertise across its service offerings and teams. This enables APAC clients to harness AI and cloud technologies to transform and innovate at greater speed and scale.

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. The integrated offering will help businesses unlock new opportunities, improve operations, and remain competitive in a rapidly evolving market. They will also be able to deploy AI capabilities for data-driven decision making, with cloud providing the infrastructure to support AI applications at scale.
