This partner-first strategy is helping to differentiate the cloud provider from its competitors, says its UK&I channel leader. Simon Aldous says the Google Cloud partner ecosystem “and the industry-specific expertise and solutions it provides [are] integral to our growth strategy.”

Indeed, the firm has seen a 400% increase in partners entering the Google Cloud ecosystem. At the same time, it is reporting a 250% increase in partner revenues.

“Partners are choosing Google Cloud to drive the next stage of their business because we are choosing to prioritise them,” said Aldous.
