Google wants to ensure that its customers are successful in the cloud. To do that, partners play a vital role, particularly in areas that require skilled expertise such as data analytics, artificial intelligence, Kubernetes and other emerging tech.
That’s why Google has an expansive global ecosystem of partners with various degrees of certification, expertise in products or industries and specialization across solution areas. So if you’re looking for a new cloud partner, you have plenty of options.
When looking for a new cloud partner, here are some questions to consider:
- Are you looking for a reseller who sells licenses or are you looking for a true partner who will help you get far more value from your Google Cloud environment?
- Do you need a partner who understands the multi-cloud environment and can support all of your needs, from Google Cloud to AWS, Azure, OCI and/or open-source environments?
- Are you looking for a partner that will collaborate with your team, offer robust professional service capabilities and support post-migration as part of an active partnership?
