Salesforce received the 2017 Google Cloud Partner Award for Innovative Solution in G Suite today at Google Cloud Next ’18, Google Cloud’s annual user conference being held this week in San Francisco.

The award recognizes Salesforce’s innovation and expert implementation of Google Cloud solutions, particularly G Suite, Google Cloud's productivity and team collaboration services.

“Our partners are fundamental to providing a great product to customers, particularly as demand for Google Cloud innovations grows,” said Nan Boden, Head of Global Technology Partners at Google Cloud. “We are proud to provide this recognition to Salesforce, whose solutions in G Suite help to meet customer demands and empower them to succeed in the era of the cloud. We’re delighted to continue building together with Salesforce on behalf of customers.”

“Our partnership with Google Cloud increases customer productivity, allowing them to spend time on what matters most – their own customer relationships,” said Ryan Aytay, EVP of Global Business Development and Strategy at Salesforce. “We will continue to deliver integrations with Google that help our customers realize the transformational benefits of G Suite.”

Salesforce and Google formed a strategic partnership in November of last year that spans Google Cloud and Google Analytics to enable smarter, more collaborative experiences for our customers.

The companies recently launched a groundbreaking integration – the first of its kind – that seamlessly connects sales, marketing and advertising data across Salesforce Sales Cloud, Salesforce Marketing Cloud and Google Analytics 360. Now, marketers around the world are able to deliver meaningful consumer experiences powered by the world’s #1 marketing platform and a market-leading web analytics product.

At Next, Salesforce and Google Cloud are showcasing their current G Suite integrations that span Gmail, Google Drive and Google Sheets, as well as their roadmap for continuing to deliver smarter, more collaborative experiences to joint customers.
