Google touts its enterprise chops in cloud keynote


Enterprises: Google wants you. That’s the message coming out of the first keynote address at the company’s Google Cloud Next conference in San Francisco on Wednesday. The tech titan’s cloud team really wants enterprises to know that it’s serious about serving their needs.

Diane Greene, the senior vice president of Google Cloud, showcased a suite of partnerships and customer announcements that provided concrete results for the enterprise-focused strategy that Greene kicked off when she joined Google in 2015.

Google hasn’t always focused on the enterprise. The announcements showcased on Wednesday show that the company’s initiatives to make its G Suite productivity service and public cloud platform offerings have been resonating with customers it may not have reached in the past.

The difference between where Google is now in regard to the enterprise and where it was is “night and day,” Gartner Vice President David Mitchell Smith said in an email.
