Kroger to use Google Cloud Platform for new digital programs


The Kroger Co. is adopting the Google Cloud Platform for digital programs such as ship-to-home and home delivery. Kroger Chief Information Officer Chris Hjelm said expansion of the Cincinnati-based retailer’s cloud computing portfolio will be a foundational cornerstone to current and future initiatives by advancing Kroger's ability to offer the digital and e-commerce services its customers want most.

“Kroger Technology has been working to accelerate our ability to deliver our business the tools and technology-enabled services that support growth as outlined in our Restock Kroger Plan,” Hjelm stated in a press release.

Kroger said the new portfolio brings a new level of capability that will help Kroger Technology accelerate delivery of new technology-based innovations to better serve customers and to grow the business. The addition of GCP provides a new pattern that will be available for Kroger and its subsidiaries. Kroger now operates agreements with Google, Microsoft and Pivotal.

To manage the portfolio, Kroger said it is creating a cloud enablement team, which will focus on different aspects of cloud computing: product management; private and public cloud engineering and operations; cloud architecture; code infrastructure; automation; and security architecture.
