Last month, India’s telecom giant Reliance Jio and Google Cloud teamed up to provide faster internet, assist small businesses, and lay the foundation for the next phase of India’s digitization. The deal between both companies is among Google’s largest cloud deals that may usher in a revenue of US$1 billion for the California-based tech giant, according to experts. To top it off, it will help more than a billion Indians connect to faster and better internet.
The partnership is not just limited to 5G collaboration, but cuts across other avenues such as the transition of legacy Reliance businesses like Retail and JioMart to the Cloud, including developing apps with edge computing, reports claim. The deal with Reliance Jio Infocomm to develop cloud solutions for its enterprise and consumer offerings will help Google earn the latter US$1 billion in revenue, according to analysts.
