Data lies “at the top of every C-suite agenda on the planet.” That’s the word from Google Cloud’s Gerrit Kazmaier, and it’s the impetus for the company’s deluge of new cloud data capabilities and support.
On Wednesday, the world’s third-largest public cloud provider is holding its Data Cloud Summit. In advance of that event, the company offered a preview of the products and features it would unveil to summit attendees. The slideshow above showcases those additions.
First, however, it’s important to understand some context around the cloud data introductions. Google Cloud likes to tout itself as the “data cloud.” As such, it focuses heavily on analytics, driven by artificial intelligence, that give organizations the information they need to improve processes and outcomes. Because of that focus, Google Cloud goes deep into some areas partners might consider arcane, but that serve as the foundation of a solid practice.
Google Cloud’s Sudhir Hasbe
Uncovering the value of this type of data is becoming even more vital to business operations. Therefore, the channel will play a significant role in parsing and comprehending the information. It also will suggest the best ways to use it. Partners, including Databricks and MongoDB, already are on board.
Google Cloud knows that. That’s why it’s “removing barriers from getting value out of data,” as Sudhir Hasbe, senior director of product management at Google Cloud, said.
This slideshow highlights just exactly how Google Cloud is doing that. As a hint from Hasbe, “BigLake is the center of our strategy.”
