ANSR, the global market leader in designing, establishing and operating Global Capability Centres (GCCs), has announced a partnership with Google Cloud that will enable enterprises to build ‘at-scale’ digital transformation capabilities.

GCCs are now a mainstream transformative strategy for global companies to leverage collaborative, distributed global teams. In fact, nearly 1,000 captives are now hosted in India, which represents 50per cent of the world’s GCCs. An estimated over 150 new ones are also expected to be set-up over the next two years as global businesses accelerate the execution of strategic digital technology narratives to stay relevant.

ANSR’s partnership with Google Cloud will enable enterprises to accelerate their transition to a ‘cloud first’ strategy in support of the emerging business and technology transformation agenda. With a focus on maturing GCCs competency narratives, ANSR will provide enterprise cloud enablement solutions on Google Cloud to its customers so they can build at scale. Existing ones will also be able to rapidly adopt the cloud as they look to digitally transform their infrastructure, application and data stack for success.

Commenting on the development, Salil Punalekar, Global Head of Business, Corporate Development and Marketing at ANSR, said, “As companies are being challenged to reimagine their customer engagement strategies, product relevance and services excellence, GCCs continue to play a pivotal role in transforming business platforms. Our partnership with Google Cloud will now enable them to play an even more important role in scaling enterprise digital competencies and cloud capabilities.”

Further, Amitabh Jacob, Head of Partnerships and Alliances at Google Cloud India, said, “Businesses today are gearing up to build stronger technology foundations and optimise cost. With Google Cloud at the core, enterprises can develop flexible, agile and robust technology to transform at speed and scale.”

ANSR and Google Cloud will establish a one-of-a-kind Collaboratory that will allow enterprises to significantly accelerate their cloud adoption journey from ideas to execution. The Collaboratory will provide a secure sandbox environment to evaluate and adopt Google Cloud use cases for cloud transformation, application modernisation, infrastructure modernisation and deep analytics solutions.
