Google Cloud will help drive Univision's digital transformation, deepening the media company's relationships with Hispanic audiences and communities, and enabling it to continue creating content for the next generation of Spanish-speaking viewers. Univision will also collaborate with other Google product areas, such as Android, Android TV OS, YouTube, Google Play, Google Ad Manager, and Google Search to enhance its capabilities and improve the overall viewer experience.
"At Univision, we've set out to be the most important global Spanish-language media company, and our partnership with Google is a critical piece of our transformation," said Wade Davis, CEO of Univision Communications Inc. "By leveraging Google's technology platform and expertise, we will transform our infrastructure to bring our customers an enhanced media experience."
Google will help Univision consolidate its multiple digital distribution platforms, modernize its production systems, create a new customer data warehouse, and migrate key enterprise applications to Google Cloud. This will allow them to apply artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) across its content libraries to provide customers with proactive, personalized recommendations. It will also enable the company to forge stronger advertising relationships with its audiences via insights derived from data.
"Increasing demand for digital media and streaming content is a huge opportunity for media companies to connect with audiences in new ways," said Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google and Alphabet. "We're excited to partner with Univision to use Google Cloud's technology and platforms like YouTube, Play and Android, to inform, entertain, and engage the next generation of Spanish-speaking viewers around the world."
