The two companies will create an “Industry-First Alliance to Accelerate Enterprise AI”.

This week C3 AI and Google Cloud announced a partnership to help organizations across multiple industries accelerate their application of artificial intelligence (AI) solutions. Under the agreement, both companies’ global sales teams will co-sell C3 AI’s enterprise AI applications, running on Google Cloud.

The entire portfolio of C3 AI’s Enterprise AI applications are now available on Google Cloud’s infrastructure. This includes industry-specific AI Applications, C3 AI® Suite, C3 AI CRM, and C3 AI Ex Machina. This availability ensables customers to run C3 AI on the industry’s cleanest cloud.

C3 AI will also work closely with Google Cloud to ensure that its applications fully leverage Google Cloud capabilities. These include Google Kubernetes Engine, Google BigQuery, and Vertex AI. This, they say, will help customers build and deploy ML models more quickly and effectively.
