Alright, check it out, this week we got some big news from a couple of heavy hitters. We’re talking about McDonald’s and Google who have announced plans for a new multi-year, global partnership.
So, the deal is that McDonald’s is gonna tap into a whole bunch of Google Cloud’s hardware, data, and AI technologies to amp up their innovation and make things even better for their customers, restaurant teams, and employees. That’s big time, man.
The Executive Vice President and Global Chief Information Officer of McDonald’s, Brian Rice, said, “We see tremendous opportunity for growth in our digital business and our partnership with Google Cloud allows us to capitalise on this by leveraging our size and scale to build capabilities and implement solutions at unmatched speeds.” That’s exciting stuff, man.
And get this, they’re gonna be using this Google Distributed Cloud thing to roll out to thousands of McDonald’s restaurants. It’s gonna be a game-changer, man. They’ll be able to use cloud-based software applications and their own software and AI solutions right there on-site. It’s gonna make things easier for everyone involved.
Plus, with Google Cloud edge computing capabilities, McDonald’s can get insights into equipment performance, find solutions to reduce disruptions, and make things easier for the restaurant teams so they can focus on the customers. It’s all about improving the experience, man.
And get this, McDonald’s is gonna be the biggest global foodservice retailer to use Google Distributed Cloud’s new capabilities. They’re planning to start rolling out the upgrades next year to thousands of restaurants. That’s a big move, man.
The CEO of Google Cloud, Thomas Kurian, said, “Through this wide ranging partnership, Google Cloud will help McDonald’s seize on new opportunities to transform its business and customer experiences, empowering restaurants worldwide with the latest technologies for near-term impact.” It’s gonna redefine the game, man.
