Telefónica’s B2B arm says the agreement will help firms accelerate their move to the cloud and digital transformation, and cut costs.
Telefónica Business Solutions will include Google Cloud Platform, G Suite, Google Cloud Interconnect and Chrome Enterprise in its multi-cloud offering.
The agreement is global and builds on the local agreement signed by Telefónica Spain last year with Google for the marketing of G Suite.
Telefónica says Google's suite of collaboration and productivity applications allows companies to integrate everything they need to create a virtual workplace, and that when these tools are combined with Telefónica's services, users can work securely from anywhere.
Hugo de los Santos, Global B2B Director of Products and Services at Telefónica commented, "Our customers demand a complete multi-cloud offering that allows them to use the most appropriate products and services from each cloud. Those offered by Google Cloud also perfectly complement our cloud product portfolio and will help us improve our value proposition to companies by distinguishing themselves through their artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities."
Sebastian Marotte, VP EMEA Partners & Alliances, Google Cloud, added, "The alliance between Google Cloud and Telefónica Business Solutions provides our clients with a simple, secure and open approach, allowing them to take advantage of the benefits of the cloud in the best way that meets their business needs."
