PwC and Google-powered technology transformations

We use the power of Google technology to help you innovate and transform. Taking you from ready-for-now to ready-for-anything.

PwC teams work with Google to help bring their innovative and game changing technology to our clients in order to help them accelerate the delivery of their business outcomes. We believe companies who use cloud, data and AI technology to innovate can win in the market and we can align our technology offerings to help them in their most strategic endeavors.

AI is disrupting the way companies do business and only those who harness its power can have the chance to lead. The latest advances in generative AI have accelerated our clients' need to take advantage of this technology.

We can help organizations with:

AI strategy
Assess current state and develop business cases, create the target state solution, help define security requirements, establish governance and operational frameworks as well as define target business value and outcomes.

Data preparation
Identify the required data, build data ingestion pipelines, cleanse data, mask data or create synthetic data and create secured data sandboxes.

Model creation
Train and deploy models of various categories depending on the targeted solution: DocumentAI, NLP, image recognition, prediction, recommendation or optimization.

Generative AI
From strategy, builds, governance to operations, our teams can help throughout your GenAI journey. We can help create, refine and prioritize use cases, create proof of concepts, prepare data, perform prompt engineering to tune usability and accuracy and deploy models.

Responsible AI
Our Responsible AI framework is about building trust. Sound strategy and governance, grounded in key guiding principles and good data, can help us and clients deliver consistently and responsibly from strategy to execution. We can help teams establish their AI strategy, define and implement controls for the governance of data and ethics, policy and regulation, controls, compliance, risk management and security.

Data modernization

Data has become the new currency and companies who harvest and utilize data effectively can win in the market. PwC uses Google’s wide range of data products to help create solutions for our clients that help differentiate them for a competitive advantage.

PwC offerings that can help drive modern data solutions include:

Data platform deployment
Create a modern data platform on GCP that allows customers to model, ingest, analyze, manage and publish data in a secure, scalable, timely and cost effective manner.

Data migration
Migrate data from legacy platforms such as Teradata, Netezza and Cloudera into BigQuery.

Data services / marketplace
Build internal or external data services to provide simple and secure access to data.

Dashboard / looker development

Application Modernization

PwC uses our strong transformation consulting practice and deep industry knowledge to help our clients reimagine their application portfolios and modernize and transform for the future. We use Google’s array of application technologies to help lay a scalable, flexible and secure foundation that allows companies to innovate with speed and change rapidly as market forces demand.

PwC focuses on three core offerings to help our clients on their application modernization and transformation journey.

Modernization strategy
Analyze the existing application landscape, define the target state application landscape and create a modernization roadmap based on business objectives and constraints.

Application modernization

Application innovation
Help customers reimagine parts of their business or create whole new businesses. Build the experience and data driven applications to support these new ventures.

Infrastructure modernization

PwC understands that a modern infrastructure should take advantage of cloud capabilities like elasticity and scalability to achieve the cost benefit potential of the cloud. And above all, cloud infrastructures should be secure. PwC has built tools and tech-enabled solutions that help our clients build a secure foundation for their cloud operations. Leveraging Google tools to implement best practices like zero-trust, PwC helps our clients start off in the cloud the right way and evolve their cloud infrastructure to achieve the potential of the cloud.

PwC offerings and tech-enabled solutions that can help support Google Cloud deployments include:

Trusted landing zone deployment
Configure landing zones as per business, security and regulatory requirements via pre-built automation scripts.

IAC automation
Leverage Infrastructure-as-a-Code (IaC) on Google Cloud to help automate the creation, update and management of core infrastructure services.

Automated migration and modernization factory
Power the automation of pre- and post-migration tasks, like network infrastructure and cross-platform connectivity setup; identity and privilege config in source and target platforms; and migrate using Google’s Migrate for Compute Engine (M4CE) and Migrate for Containers.


PwC’s Cyber, Risk and Regulatory practice works with Google Cloud to confirm that the solutions we build are carefully secured and compliant with specific industry requirements. We also help clients implement leading practices of Google Cloud security capabilities, governance structures and processes. Without highly mature security capabilities, companies may move slow due to non automated or unaligned processes or may be open to cyber risks. We work with Google to combine PwC’s deep knowledge with Google’s security solutions to allow our clients to operate a safe and secure cloud.

Our security offerings are focused in a few key areas:

Secure, Compliant, and Resilient (SCaR) Cloud Implementation

By focusing on enhancing the platform for our customers, companies realize greater business value.

At PwC, we go beyond mere maintenance and support by continuously monitoring and enhancing your cloud environment while working to respond to market demands, address security challenges, utilize resources effectively, and help confirm minimal disruption and maximum efficiency.
