PwC is moving to the cloud

To remain competitive, companies must stay at the forefront of technological change while pushing back against the rising cost, resource commitment and complexity of legacy solutions. What drove PwC’s decision to move to the cloud? Within five years, PwC estimates they will have over 240,000 employees with an average age of 27: digital natives who are accustomed to a “consumerized” technology experience of instant access anytime, anywhere. PwC clients also increasingly expect a leading technology experience, both for themselves and as a platform to transform their businesses.

But PwC also understood that moving to the cloud would represent a major disruption of established processes and mindsets. Seeing both sides of the cloud equation clearly, PwC knew from the start that moving their business to the cloud would require a strategic approach that delivered extraordinary value and innovation. The advantages of moving to the cloud are well-documented. The world—and technology—are evolving faster than ever.

A long-term strategy for a rapidly changing world

Of the five “megatrends” PwC believes are reshaping today’s world, technology is the only one businesses have direct control over. To PwC, the Google Cloud value proposition—agility, innovation, simplicity and economies of scale—delivers not just a technology advantage, but real tools for continually navigating a changing world.

A suite of collaborative cloud-based tools

Drawing from PwC’s own experience of Going Google, together we work with companies to evaluate, plan and enable their move to the cloud to drive disruptive innovation. For example:

  • We are working with a leading insurance company to reinvent their business. By leveraging Google technologies to transform how they handle insurance claims and using Google Cloud for analytics, the insurance provider has the potential to shorten the underwriting process and significantly enhance the customer experience.
  • With the prevalence of connected sensors, we can help manufacturers gain deeper insights and predictability in their supply chain and manufacturing operations by leveraging Google’s data analysis platforms. For us, this journey helps offer our clients a competitive advantage.

Collaborating to innovate

PwC is ready to share the critical insights it has gained on its path to “Going Google” with customers and clients worldwide who want to collaborate, improve, disrupt and find a better way to leverage technology to solve important business problems. From change management, to technical configuration, to project management.
