When it comes to cloud services, Google is the ultimate tease — every year it seems it is ready to break out, and every year things continue to stay the same. One challenge the company has in getting more businesses to consider their services is that Google appears to treat corporate-focused services like a hobby than something in which they’re really interested. A former Google executive told me the consumer businesses, particularly search dominated R&D, gets the most attention, which makes sense given how much revenue it pulls in. The problem is the development teams for the business products always played second fiddle to search and would often have to shelve things they were working on. The Google Cloud Portfolio is very broad, and its worth doing a deep dive into these to understand how Google is positioned.

It may be obvious, but I have to say the cloud -- particularly a cloud data analytics stack. It is the only way for companies to efficiently and effectively combine data from all the myriad sources and analyze it together. Cloud data warehouses (CDWs) are experiencing incredible traction, and I believe we will continue to see a sharp trajectory for them and the various technologies associated with them, from the pipeline funneling all the data into the CDW to the cloud analytics and business intelligence (BI) software that enables you to access and analyze the data in real-time (like Sigma, the company I lead).CDWs have taken off for a number of reasons: scalability, flexibility, lower costs, and connectivity, which are benefits presented by most cloud technologies.

Cloud is not new at this point,” said Beth Halloran, deputy CIO at the General Services Administration, at Cloudera’s recent Data Cloud Summit.You can’t just say, ‘It’s going to save us money by going into the cloud,” she continued. “You have to understand what level of cloud is going to save you money, and infrastructure and services is not it.
