Here’s my conversation with Will Grannis of Google Cloud, and the premiere episode of “Cloud Wars Executive Insights.” As the tech companies in our Cloud Wars Top 10 rankings drive transformation not just in individual corporations but also in entire global industries, it’s essential for business executives to understand the strategic intentions of each of these vendors. That’s what this new limited series is all about.
Episode 1: Google Cloud
In this episode, I talk with Will Grannis, who is the Managing Director of the CTO Office at Google Cloud. Will shares with us his highly informed perspective on how the world’s #7 vendor is helping to simultaneously drive innovation and growth for businesses *and* breakthrough experiences for customers. Will and I discuss how data analytics and machine learning can help companies unlock the transformative power of the cloud. And finally, we explore how the cloud can and is enabling data-driven business models that would never have been feasible in the past.
