The Adani Group on Monday inked a multi-year cloud-first partnership with Google Cloud to power the next phase of innovation across India’s fastest-growing diversified business portfolio. The strategic collaboration will tap each organisation’s expertise across best-in-class infrastructure, technology, and industry solutions to modernise the Adani Group’s IT operations at scale.
“The inevitability and pace of cloud adoption mandates that every business re-defines its business model. This provides new challenges and new opportunities that will not only be transformational but will also require new forms of industry collaboration,” said Gautam Adani, chairman, Adani Group. “We are pleased to work with Google Cloud across its multidimensional offerings to help us build a technology-driven organization which potentially opens up new business areas for us.”
The first phase of the partnership is underway, with the Adani Group making “swift” progress migrating its extensive IT footprint from its existing on-premises data centre and colocation facilities to Google Cloud.
Headquartered in Ahmedabad, India, the Adani Group is the largest and fastest-growing portfolio of diversified businesses in India with interests in Logistics (seaports, airports, logistics, shipping and rail), Resources, Power Generation and Distribution, Renewable Energy, Gas and Infrastructure, Agro (commodities, edible oil, food products, cold storage and grain silos), Real Estate, Public Transport Infrastructure, Consumer Finance and Defence, and other sectors. Adani owes its success and leadership position to its core philosophy of ‘Nation Building’ and ‘Growth with Goodness’ – a guiding principle for sustainable growth. The Group is committed to protecting the environment and improving communities through its CSR programmes based on the principles of sustainability, diversity and shared values.
Moving Adani’s 250+ business-critical applications, such as its SAP HANA core, and peripheral systems to Google Cloud’s infrastructure is expected to help centralise workflows, streamline operations, and enable business users to tap powerful new data capabilities for fast and accurate decision making.
