The application suite builds ‌extensively on Google Cloud products and infrastructure, including, but not limited to, Google Kubernetes Engine, Google BigQuery, and Vertex AI, enabling customers to easily extend and configure artificial intelligence (AI)-based algorithms.

Additionally, Google Cloud solutions’ packaged integration services and data models, such as Google Cloud Cortex Framework and Google Cloud Supply Chain Twin, allows for rapid scaling.

“Our work with Google Cloud to create intelligent, highly resilient enterprise AI supply chain solutions has never been more important,” said Ed Abbo, president and chief technology officer of C3 AI.

“Combining AI capabilities with cloud infrastructure and the data organization and orchestration power of Google Cloud’s Supply Chain Twin will give customers the ability to predict changes and react quickly in increasingly inflationary and dynamic labor and supply environments.”

“The expansion of the Google Cloud and C3 AI partnership in support of resilient supply chains represents another collaboration across industries and domains such as manufacturing sustainability, consumer packaged goods, retail, and healthcare,” commented Hans Thalbauer, managing director of supply chain and manufacturing industries at Google Cloud.

“Customers are already realizing faster time-to-value and seeing actionable insights in their data,” added Thalbauer.
