Google Cloud wins tender with Israeli judiciary

After winning the Project Nimbus tender with the Israeli government last year, the Rabbinical Court will also use the tech giant’s cloud platform

Google Cloud is set to help the Israeli judiciary undergo digital transformation, after winning a contract with the Israeli government last year.

The Rabbinical Court is the legal Jewish authority in Israel and deals with issues relating to divorce, property, child custody rights, wills, inheritances, confirmation of Jewish status, and conversion. There are 12 regional rabbinical courts throughout the country, and it hopes to use the tech giant’s infrastructure, storage, and applications to better serve Israeli citizens.

Last May, Google Cloud won the Project Nimbus tender to deliver cloud services to the Israeli government. The agreement was set to deliver cloud services to all government entities across the state, including ministries, authorities, and government-owned companies.

Following this, the Rabbinical Court has migrated most of its workloads to the platform. The tech giant also developed a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) to help judiciary employees work from home during the pandemic.

The two organisations are set to collaborate to use Google Cloud’s products and services to provide a better experience for customers. This includes helping citizens access the documents they need to seamlessly navigate court proceedings.

The courts will use Google Cloud’s infrastructure-as-a-service products to rapidly digitise its operations in the cloud. It will also pilot Cloud Identity to help protect organisational data with a variety of multi-factor authentication (MFA) verification methods, like push notifications, Google Authenticator and Titan Security Keys, while ensuring the privacy of citizens' data.

The Google Cloud Structured Query Language will help the courts set up, maintain, manage, and administer relational databases too. 

"We are delighted to work with Google Cloud on the next stage of our digital transformation journey," said chief information officer Uri Aharonson. "We are looking forward to this collaboration to develop applications that will make our services faster and more accessible for our Israeli citizens."

As well as the Nimbus contract, Google Cloud has been taking interest in Israel recently. In January, it acquired Siemplify, an Israeli-based cyber security company that specialises in end-to-end security for enterprises. Although the exact terms of the deal weren’t announced, reports suggested it was worth around $500 million. Amos Stern, CEO and co-founder of the company, noted that his company was to be integrated into Google Cloud’s Chronicle platform.
