Technology major, HCLTech and Google Cloud on Wednesday notified their strategic partnership expansion to leverage enterprises with generative artificial intelligence (AI) and develop joint solutions powered by Google Cloud’s generative AI technologies.
The tech company reported it is actively using Google Cloud’s large language models (LLMs) to develop generative AI capabilities for its clients across three significant domains – industries, enterprise functions, innovation and technology modernisation.
HCLTech’s AI platforms and solutions will utilise Google Cloud’s full suite of enterprise generative AI products and services, including vertex AI, generative AI studio, model garden and generative AI app builder, along with the underlying LLMs that power these Google Cloud AI innovations.
The company will also establish a Google Cloud Generative AI Center of Excellence (GenAI CoE) that aims to develop joint solutions enabling clients to unlock the value of data and realise the full potential of generative AI.
The GenAI CoE will draw from AI expertise embedded in HCLTech Cloud Native Labs in London, Dallas and India (Noida).
Furthermore, HCLSoftware plans to accelerate its own digital transformation by adopting Google Workspace, Duet AI for Google Workspace and Developers and is deploying Vertex AI for improving customer success and customer support for its client.
Kalyan Kumar, Chief Technology Officer and Head, Ecosystems, HCLTech said, “Generative AI will usher in a new era of innovation across industries. This presents an opportunity for enterprises to double down on digital transformation, he added expressing his excitement about the partnership.
