TOKYO -- Mizuho Financial Group has teamed up with Google to accelerate the digitization of its retail banking services, hoping to leave behind the computer system troubles that plagued it for months. 

Mizuho and Google Cloud Japan are set to announce a strategic partnership, under which the Japanese bank will use the U.S. tech giant's cloud services to analyze data about customer transactions conducted on its banking apps and at retail branches.
