Magic Leap today announced that they have entered into a multi-phased, multi-year partnership agreement with Google Cloud to deliver Magic Leap enterprise solutions on the Google Cloud Marketplace and explore potential new cloud-based, spatial computing solutions running on Google Cloud.
As enterprises have evolved their operations over the past year to meet the needs of the changing business environment, demand for solutions that support business continuity, agility and borderless collaboration has accelerated exponentially. The partnership is designed to seamlessly meet the demands of those businesses.
Beginning in 2021, select Magic Leap solutions that provide essential tools for businesses will be available in the Google Cloud Marketplace. As partners and developers continue to create leading enterprise solutions for the Magic Leap platform, now they can receive scalable, go-to-market support for their tools built on Google Cloud and be able to reach global customers via the Google Cloud Marketplace. Magic Leap’s own solutions, such as its Communication, Collaboration and Co-presence platform, will be made available in the Google Cloud Marketplace as well.
“As we continue to build momentum for spatial computing in the enterprise market, we are very excited to partner with Google Cloud to deliver unique cloud solutions to their customers and ours,” explained Walter Delph, Chief Business Officer, Magic Leap. “Google Cloud offers best in class infrastructure for leading edge solutions designed to provide efficiencies, continuity and innovation to businesses across the globe.”
In the second phase of their partnership, Magic Leap and Google Cloud will jointly explore opportunities to integrate Google Cloud capabilities in artificial intelligence, machine learning, and analytics into Magic Leap’s Communication, Collaboration and Co-presence platform to support co-presence in any enterprise setting globally. Potential use cases involve applying cloud capabilities to help capture data and knowledge from experienced technicians in manufacturing settings, enhancing remote-technical support and training using AR, or providing complex or personalized procedure support in the healthcare industry.
Magic Leap is also working on the development of an Augmented Reality Cloud product that will advance the activation of spatially-aware enterprise solutions across multiple industry verticals. The Magic Leap Augmented Reality Cloud will equip enterprises with all the essential capabilities required to build enterprise applications that are spatially-aware, collaborative, and full-fidelity, thereby improving workforce productivity, efficiency, and business outcomes. Working in collaboration with Google Cloud, Magic Leap will explore the optimization of its Augmented Reality Cloud leveraging Google Cloud’s network, Content Delivery Services, and evolving 5G Network Edge Compute services.
“More than ever, organizations are looking for ways to keep teams connected and support employees with innovative solutions in the cloud,” said Joe Miles Managing Director of Healthcare and Life Sciences at Google Cloud. “We are excited that Magic Leap has selected Google Cloud to expand the availability of its solutions for productivity in the enterprise. We look forward to working together to help Magic Leap scale its cloud-based solutions globally, and to help customers deploy next-generation collaboration and productivity solutions in the workplace.”
