Google Cloud and Boeing have collaborated to support Boeing’s cloud transformation by transferring tons of applications over several market segments and aerospace technologies to Google Cloud. Boeing will be able to overcome issues related to traditional on-premises IT deployments by leveraging the cloud’s versatility, as well as Google Cloud’s data analytics and artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML) technologies’ simplicity of use and innovation.

CEO of Google Cloud, Thomas Kurian stated, “Boeing is a global aerospace icon, and we’re proud to partner and apply the best of Google Cloud’s capabilities, including AI, data analytics, and clean infrastructure. We look forward to working together to transform Boeing’s business and help them continue to build innovative aerospace services that help airlines run efficiently and in an environmentally friendly way.”

Boeing’s aerospace product software and internal developers will be able to design and deploy apps and solutions across the organization to solve problems, create new digital products, and support its business partners because of the partnership. Boeing application owners will be able to use Google Cloud’s automation to speed up the provisioning of services for projects. Developers will also be able to use new data analytics and AI/ML capabilities for greater business effect, such as providing insights that can help Boeing enhance its airplane manufacturing efficiency.

Boeing’s chief information officer and senior vice president of Information, Technology & Data Analytics, Susan Doniz commented, “Today’s announcement represents a significant investment in Boeing’s digital future. Google Cloud will help us modernize our applications; empower our people with the latest technology, tools, and expertise; and continuously innovate with rapid software changes. With Google Cloud’s years of cloud leadership, data analytics, and AI/ML experience, we are looking forward to driving advanced digital aerospace solutions together.”

Boeing will deploy apps and workloads in Google Cloud areas with the lowest carbon footprint, in keeping with the company’s objective to achieve net-zero emissions. Google Cloud uses renewable energy to power all cloud workloads, making it the cleanest cloud in the business. When customers such as Boeing migrate an application from a self-managed data center or collocation facility to Google Cloud, the net operating expenditures are zero.
