Greater Value, Improved Experiences for Customers, Partners
Google Cloud sent us the following statement:
“Adaire is a seasoned leader with more than 30 years of experience in sales, services, support and customer engagement. Google Cloud is one of the fastest-growing businesses within Alphabet. And bringing our global teams together will enable us to drive new levels of productivity and consistency across the organization, and deliver even greater value and improved experiences for our customers and partners.”
Other personnel shifts are taking place as part of the GTM organization unification.
Global spending on IT and business services declined in the fourth quarter, with particular weakness in cloud-based infrastructure services. That’s according to the latest state-of-the industry report from Information Services Group (ISG).
ISG sees several potential positive developments for the market heading into 2023, including interest rate hikes coming to an end, inflation lessening, China reopening, supply chains beginning to normalize, and the U.S. dollar coming off recent highs.
