Stuttgart, 21 July – Artificial intelligence could contribute close to USD 16 trillion to the global economy in 2030. Successfully implementing AI solutions has become key for the continued competitiveness of companies in all industries.
The analyst firm ISG recognises GFT as a leader in Europe for data analytics and machine learning in the Google Cloud Partner Ecosystem in their first-ever ISG Provider Lens™ report on the subject. Leaders as defined by ISG have a broad, attractive portfolio of products and services, a well-established market presence and strong competitive position.
When employed correctly, artificial intelligence can give companies of all industries a competitive advantage. It boosts their productivity and improves overall reliability. Companies who apply AI to the heart of their business significantly enhance their ability to make decisions faster, smarter and with greater precision. The Google Cloud Platform gives users quick and easy access to the latest AI technologies while avoiding huge hardware investments. Still, going it alone is not an option: To get optimum results out of their Google Cloud AI applications, companies need an experienced partner. Analyst reports like the most recent one from ISG now make it easier to find the right partner with the specialist skills to create valuable business outcomes.
“Strong visual inspection capabilities make GFT a leader on data analytics and machine learning in the Google Cloud Partner ecosystem,” said Mark Purdy, principal analyst and author of the ISG report.

We have done this in all industries, from financial services to manufacturing, and not just in Europe, but in North and South America as well.”
The report highlights GFT’s strong expertise in computer vision technologies. The company is listed as one of four global service providers for GCP’s Visual Inspection AI and, as the analyst firm put it, “offers a range of advanced visual inspection tools for manufacturing processes,” including
- process monitoring
