Google Next London has just wrapped, and it was two fantastic and inspirational days. Many great technologies were showcased, with vibrant talks and discussions throughout (not to mention the lovely food!).
Here are some of our highlights from the event, and some of the key messages coming through from an energised set of Googlers:
- Diane Greene, Global President of Google Cloud, referenced Appsbroker in her opening keynote speech
- Google has a strong commitment to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
- Google continues to invest in Enterprise and has spent $30billion on infrastructure over the past 3 years, so that you don’t have to; making sure you have access to the most secure, accessible and performant cloud services
- AI and Machine Learning is going to sideline mundane tasks, and free up your time to do the creative, value-add work that you love doing
Celebrating the power of working together…
We were honoured to share the stage with Vincent Grandjean of Santander and Adrian Poole from Google Cloud, to talk about our work on Project Sentinel. There were 100s of experts from across the finance sector crammed into the session; listening to and asking questions about the innovative technologies being used, and the collaborative approach which is unlocking transformation in this heavily regulated industry.
Now is the time to embrace the Cloud...
Rumours around the event suggested Next London was 4x oversubscribed this year. With over 4,500 people at the event each day, it really shows the scale and impact Google is having on the Enterprise market. Google know how to throw a good party, and these two days have reinforced their commitment and credibility to truly transform how the world gets work done, with collaboration and innovation at its core.
We really enjoyed talking “Google Cloud” to everyone who came past our stand. We were proud to be a Platinum sponsor this year, and have made lots of new friends from both our partners at Google, and across the Enterprise business ecosystem!
