Swiss technology leader ABB has selected Google Cloud to expand its cloud footprint, focusing on ABB’s Information System services.
This decision is part of ABB’s initiative to increase scalability and resilience of its infrastructure.
“We are excited to be working together with Google Cloud to improve the competitiveness of ABB’s Information Systems services, and the flexibility we offer our internal business customers,’” said Daniele Lisetto, Head of IS Strategy Office and Sponsor of the Rationalizing IT Operations Program at ABB.
Google Cloud and ABB will work together to lay out their cloud migration plan.
“Our choice to include Google Cloud further strengthens our strategic vision and stimulates innovation as we expand the Information Systems’ cloud footprint,” said Prabhu Chakravarthy, Group IS Program Leader at ABB.
Google Cloud’s data science, artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities will be used to simplify and improve the IS quality assurance through automation and consolidation of identified services housed in ABB’s strategic data centers and remote sites, with a cloud-first approach.

The migration will be a structured roll out in-line with ABB’s new operating model, signaling their increased focus on cloud adoption and optimising their data center capacity.
