Scotiabank has expanded its partnership with Google Cloud. Specifically, it has named Google as its enterprise cloud platform of choice for the next phase of the bank’s cloud acceleration journey.

The bank will leverage Google Cloud technology to enhance client and employee experience. The bank says it will strengthen security and adopt new technologies, like generative AI, more quickly. The announcement builds on Scotiabank’s strategic partnership with Google Cloud. And it extends its cloud-first commitment and accelerates its global data and analytics strategy.

“Scotiabank’s partnership with Google Cloud reinforces the bank’s commitment to investing in strategic growth initiatives that make it easy to do business with us,” said Michael Zerbs, Group Head, Technology & Operations, Scotiabank.

“We have an aggressive goal of moving the majority of the bank’s information and systems to the cloud over the next three years, maximising the productivity of our business and the safety of our information. This further demonstrates Scotiabank’s investment in the long-term success of our clients, shareholders, and employees.”

Matt Renner, President, Global Field Organisation, Google Cloud, added: “Google Cloud has a long history of working with Scotiabank. We are proud to expand our partnership at such a pivotal time for the Bank. Scotiabank has demonstrated its commitment to transforming its operations with Google-powered cloud and AI technologies. It is creating more engaging client experiences with safety and privacy at the core.”

Scotiabank says it continues to prioritise innovation, digitisation, and modernisation of its operations.
