FRANKFURT, Germany and SUNNYVALE, Calif.,— Deutsche Bank and Google Cloud announced that they had finalized a strategic, multi-year partnership to accelerate the bank’s transition to the cloud and co-innovate new products and services. It is the first partnership of this kind for the financial services industry.

For Deutsche Bank’s clients, the agreement will reshape how products and services are designed and delivered. With faster application development and the use of advanced artificial intelligence and data analytics tools, the bank will be able to respond more flexibly and more accurately to the most pressing challenges, trends, and client needs.

“Today marks a new chapter for Deutsche Bank,” said Bernd Leukert, Deutsche Bank’s Chief Technology, Data and Innovation Officer and Member of the Management Board. “With Google Cloud by our side, we have a strategic partner that will accelerate our technology transformation, enable us to use data more intelligently, and provide a flexible and safe environment for us to deliver new products and services quickly. This is the blueprint for bringing together the relative strengths within banking and technology for the benefit of our clients.”

“Mobile self-service options, artificial intelligence-based recommendations, and other innovations are transforming the banking experience for businesses and consumers around the world,” said Rob Enslin, President, Google Cloud. “Our partnership with Deutsche Bank will bring innovations to life and further establish the financial services industry as an early technology adopter. Deutsche Bank is a trailblazer in the industry, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to partner with such an important market leader.”

Several use cases for the partnership are already being explored, including:

As a further step, Deutsche Bank and Google Cloud intend to selectively co-innovate with promising start-ups and fintech that can support the bank’s client and transformation goals. Deutsche Bank plans to list its Google Cloud products on Google Cloud Marketplace to expand customer reach to drive broader adoption of its new cloud-native services and solutions.

Moving to the cloud will enable Deutsche Bank to take advantage of an up-to-date and fully managed environment for applications. Flexibility and resilience will improve, with an uncompromising focus on data privacy and security to safeguard customer data and Deutsche Bank’s information assets.

Deutsche Bank applications will encrypt data at rest and in transit. Google Cloud will provide Deutsche Bank with functionality to allow the bank to manage its encryption keys.

Deutsche Bank provides commercial and investment banking, retail banking, transaction banking, and asset and wealth management products and services to corporations, governments, institutional investors, small and medium-sized businesses, and private individuals. Deutsche Bank is Germany’s leading bank, with a strong position in Europe and a significant presence in the Americas and the Asia Pacific.

Google Cloud provides organizations with leading infrastructure, platform capabilities, and industry solutions.
