Confluent Strengthens Partnership, Named Google Cloud Partner of Year

Confluent Inc., the data streaming pioneer, has expanded its partnership with Google Cloud, and it was named the Google Cloud Technology Partner of the Year for Google Marketplace–Data and Analytics for the fourth straight year.

Through the long-standing partnership, Confluent and Google Cloud make it easy for customers to connect and process real-time data flows throughout their entire organization to power modern applications and analytics.

“Together, Confluent and Google Cloud are helping organizations solve their most pressing data challenges,” said Erica Schultz, president of Field Operations at Confluent. “Through our expanded partnership, we’ll help more customers transform their businesses with real-time data and modernize their data platforms with a reliable bridge from their on-premises, multi-cloud data architectures to Google Cloud.”

As more companies seek to deliver personalized customer experiences and context-rich business operations, a growing demand exists for real-time data connectivity across diverse locations to update applications in real-time.

Available through Google Cloud Marketplace, Confluent is the connective tissue that allows real-time data from multiple sources to stream across the organization. It feeds real-time data into best-of-breed Google Cloud services such as BigQuery, Google Cloud Storage, Dataflow, Dataproc, and VertexAI for organizations to build machine learning, artificial intelligence and streaming analytics use cases.

Confluent’s expanded partnership with Google Cloud deepens commitments across several focus areas and initiatives. Added technical support will further integrations between Confluent and Google Cloud’s data and analytics services.

And, with enhanced go-to-market resourcing, there will be more awareness of the value that Confluent brings to Google Cloud customers, driving greater alignment across sales, marketing and engineering teams.
