Google Cloud partners with One NZ on DX

Telco One New Zealand (One NZ) and Google Cloud have announced a five-year strategic partnership to bolster cloud transformation, and accelerate digitisation efforts across small and midsize businesses (SMB), enterprises and public segments in New Zealand.

The agreement will involve both organisations working together to modernise One NZ’s infrastructure, and jointly go-to-market with tailored software-as-a-service (SaaS) offerings that give Kiwi businesses easy access to cloud-based tools to help them quickly and securely digitise.

“One New Zealand is 100% focused on helping Kiwi businesses thrive,” said Mike Purchase, interim chief enterprise director at One New Zealand.

“We are delighted to further strengthen our partnership with Google Cloud, to help us modernise and simplify our own systems and infrastructure, and also create a step change in productivity for our customers.”

Digitally transforming Kiwi businesses

Google Cloud will work with One NZ to bring digital solutions, including data and analytics technologies, AI tools, Google Workspace and security solutions, to One NZ’s SMB, enterprise and public sector customers.

One NZ will also offer customised software-as-a-service solutions, via One NZ’s cloud marketplace, aimed at fully digitising SMBs at each stage of their businesses. This will help companies scale their businesses, accelerate the pace of innovation and build better customer experiences.

Building a cloud-first foundation

The collaboration with Google Cloud forms a part of One NZ’s broader business and technology transformation plan — paving the way towards becoming a cloud-first organisation.

One NZ will leverage Google Cloud’s infrastructure to simplify its IT environment onto a scalable and resilient platform, with a goal of streamlining core operations to improve customer experiences and optimise costs. Tapping Google Cloud’s security solutions and Mandiant Consulting services, One NZ’s end-to-end operations will also be further strengthened by advanced threat protection and customer data security.

“Google Cloud has been a key partner across our technology stack for some years now. We look forward to bringing their pedigree of innovation in data, AI and networking to support our strategy moving forward,” said Tony Baird, chief technology officer at One New Zealand.
