February 11, 2019 / REINHARDT KRAUSE

Thomas Kurian, the new boss of the Google cloud computing business, is set to appear at a Goldman Sachs technology conference in San Francisco on Tuesday amid growing speculation that Google could buy a big enterprise software company. A former Oracle (ORCL) executive, Kurian took over as head of Google cloud computing business in early January. It's believed to be Kurian's first public appearance at a financial conference since he took the helm.When Google-parent Alphabet (GOOGL) reported earnings on Feb. 4, management had little to say on any changes in strategy for Google cloud computing. Analysts expect Kurian to take part in the Goldman Sachs conference at 11:15 a.m. ET on Tuesday. A webcast is available here.
