“Google Cloud is the path to digital transformation for enterprises in any industry of any size. The IP4G Google Cloud Marketplace solution enables customers with IBM Power workloads to migrate and transform with new levels of confidence, lower risk, and increased agility. Coupled with Converge’s broad portfolio of professional and managed services, in areas which include Advanced Analytics, AI/ML, Application Modernization, Cybersecurity, and Operational Managed Services, our clients are experiencing shorter migrations and lowering their time-to-value for cloud migrations,” stated Greg Berard, Global CEO and President of Converge.
