Google is taking a differentiated approach to providing cloud services to the enterprise. Mindful that its primary competitors in the enterprise cloud space have already built substantial installed bases, Google will leverage made-by-Google software to add value beyond re-hosting and lift-and-shift workloads. Its Google Cloud Platform NEXT 2016(GCP NEXT) conference in San Francisco (March 23 – March 24, 2016) showcased these next-gen workloads, as early adopter customers described their use of Google-hosted applications.
Back in 2010, our premise was that cloud was going to change the world because it would allow us to build cool custom software for companies that couldn’t have afforded it before: we would economically build and operate low-risk custom SaaS applications in the cloud. That was a software-powered world, 2010 style.
“We change our behaviour when the pain of staying the same becomes greater than the pain of changing. Consequences give us the pain that motivates us to change” Dr. henry cloud & Dr. john townsend
The need for change and acceptance of the fact that your status quo for business may be no. Longer has never been truer. I have been speaking on the effect of the cloud (internet based service and supply) for the past 8 years and in the past two have provided much comment on the visible effects we had and are seeing.
Today, organizations of all sizes are interested in a technology model that fully embraces the transformational promise of the cloud. But if they approach cloud migration the wrong way, they are destined for disillusionment.
Don’t blame the cloud!
