Grocery giant Kroger recently announced a new partnership with Google Cloud Platform. The move comes as part of their goal to have a leading role in digital initiatives such as home grocery delivery.
Kroger chose Google Cloud due to their suite of products and services that streamline operations and allow them to scale their efforts without up front investments in legacy on-premises equipment.
This marks another big win for GCP in just the last few months. Cisco, Salesforce, and Marketo are just a few other large organizations who have partnered with Google in the second half of 2017.
