Pandera Continues to Fuel Google Cloud Partnership
At the start of 2022 Pandera made the strategic decision to further expand our capabilities, services, sales and marketing efforts to support the growth of our Google Cloud partnership. With Google Cloud reporting a Q1 revenue growth of 23% from previous year it confirms our decision to fully invest into the growth of the partnership as Google themselves continue to invest in products and services, and creating opportunities for partners and local communities across the globe.
As an organization we have increased our share of Google Cloud focused projects to 70% of our customer portfolio which is a 30% increase to prior year. In order to support the influx of these projects we have also increased the total number of Google Cloud / Looker certified employees by 50% since 2021.
As companies continue to invest in capitalizing on their data assets by modernizing their data and analytic platforms, we see Google Cloud as the leading Cloud innovator that is best positioned to help accelerate time to value while unlocking opportunities that were not possible or practical either on premise nor on other Cloud Data Platforms.
Google Cloud’s Data Platform not only provides the elastic compute and storage that is critical to meet an organization’s ever changing needs across mixed workloads and concurrency, but it also supports structured, semi-structured and unstructured data integrated with all of the AI/ML tools needed to build truly smart analytic applications and actionable insights via Looker or other modern analytical platforms.
Our passion is to help our customers understand the art of the possible, and to help them build smarter applications resulting in better business outcomes. From GCS to BigQuery to Looker to Vertex to the nearly 250 datasets available in the Google Cloud Marketplace, only Google provides the complete set of tools to innovate and activate on every data opportunity, and Pandera will continue to invest in being the premier partner guiding customers through their data modernization.

Data and Analytics Modernization a Top Priority for Executives
Data Modernization continues to evolve as a high priority for the enterprise. Organizations are unlocking new revenue value from their data as a part of digital business transformation. However, they find it complex to access, manage, distribute and analyze all their available data from various disparate systems. With traditional data warehouses and legacy BI solutions not being able to handle the variety, volume, and velocity of the data that the current day business systems generate, intelligent businesses must move towards intelligent data modernization.
To address the challenges and the demand to modernize, Pandera has introduced solutions such as our Data Strategy Assessment and Roadmap and Business Intelligence Modernization to help accelerate their modernization initiatives.
