McKinsey and Google Cloud Forge Partnership to Unlock US$4 Trillion in Business Value Through Generative AI
McKinsey and Google Cloud have joined forces to unleash the potential of generative artificial intelligence (gen AI), projecting a staggering $4 trillion in prospective business value.

The partnership introduces Gemini for Google Cloud, a cutting-edge initiative poised to catalyse transformative change across industries.

The alliance marks a pivotal moment in McKinsey’s goal to encourage an open ecosystem of leading gen AI innovators. By leveraging the collective expertise and solutions spanning the entirety of the technology spectrum, clients are empowered to seamlessly integrate and scale gen AI solutions.

Google Cloud’s reputation as a trailblazer in cloud and AI technologies is firmly entrenched in its DNA. Boasting an array of industry-leading solutions, the company’s fusion of unparalleled product prowess with foundational AI frameworks equips enterprises with the requisite tools to drive global-scale transformations. With a steadfast commitment to innovation and a cross-functional approach spanning Alphabet’s conglomerate, Google Cloud stands poised to tackle the most formidable business challenges head-on.

The synergy between McKinsey and Google Cloud is further underscored by the former’s extensive pool of talent, comprising 7,000 technologists, designers, and product managers operating across 50 countries. Notably, a significant cohort of McKinsey personnel holds Google Cloud certifications, reflecting a 160 percent surge in certified individuals from the previous year. Drawing upon insights gleaned from engagements with over 200 clients, McKinsey is uniquely positioned to delineate the essential ingredients for organisational rewiring and AI-driven transformation.

“When Google Cloud technology is combined with McKinsey’s industry expertise, technology delivery experience, and capability building, it creates a powerful partnership able to help businesses shape, mobilise and orchestrate large-scale, tech-enabled transformations,” said Bob Sternfels, McKinsey’s global managing partner.

“Generative AI can transform organizations by increasing workforce productivity, accelerating developer velocity, and streamlining business operations,” said Thomas Kurian, CEO of Google Cloud. “With this expanded partnership, clients will now be better positioned to successfully scope and optimize their generative AI projects.”

 “The partnership is a testament to our belief in this technology and our dedication to leading the charge in unlocking tangible value for our clients,” said Adrian Booth, leader of Build by McKinsey and the Google Cloud alliance.

“This is not just an alliance,” Adrian added. “It’s a journey towards redefining the future of business, innovation, and success.”
