Google Gets It?

I’ve never thought of Google as a company that “gets” enterprise. I mean – Google is itself an enterprise, sure, but their focus and culture hasn’t always rhymed with “enterprise”. At least in terms of IT.

But the last year or so has showed a different side to the story. CEO Sundar Pichai says in the earnings call linked above: “I think we are very, very focused on industry-value propositions…and that’s really helped us get some of the bigger deals.” Seems like hiring Thomas Kurian as CEO of Google Cloud was prescient.

In my development work outside of SAP, I love Google Cloud Platform capabilities and tools. I’m hoping that further inroads into enterprise will let me have fun stitching them together again. PM
