Google Cloud has announced a new partnership with global fashion retailer, H&M Group. The alliance will see the Swedish multinational leverage Google Cloud’s extensive data analytics capabilities and secure, sustainable global infrastructure to further enhance its customer experience and supply chain enablement.
Google Cloud will collaborate with H&M Group to develop an enterprise data backbone including a core data platform, data product and advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) capabilities. This will also include the establishment of a new data mesh to further make all types of data and events accessible from multiple sources including in-store, online, its brands ecosystem and suppliers.
As the partnership develops, this will translate to increased optimisation of internal supply chains, as well as next-generation customer experiences across a variety of sales channels, from physical stores to ecommerce. What’s more, this partnership will enable further development of data science and AI capabilities throughout H&M Group’s business.
