Delivering the right combination of Google Cloud solutions for significant impact
Capgemini Group is leveraging Google Cloud to enable clients to become data-powered organizations and unlock new business models, services, products and processes.
For instance, Capgemini recently partnered with Maxeda, a leading DIY retailer in Benelux, to transform its digital landscape and foster innovation, enabling seamless integration of several business models and improved operational efficiency. This not only helped Maxeda become more agile and scalable, but the data-backed solution provided a holistic view of their customers and products, which enabled the organization to adopt a customer first approach, meet evolving customer expectations and future-proof the business.
“The retail industry has undergone significant changes in recent years due to technological innovation and changing consumer preferences. Adopting a cloud-first, digital approach is key to becoming future-ready,” said Erik Cuypers, Group CIO of Maxeda. “Capgemini’s deep sector expertise and in-depth understanding of our business landscape meant they were the right partner to help us transform our business and drive sustainable value creation.”
