With the former Google Cloud product Management Head Amir Hermelin leaving the company he raised two interesting mistakes of the company in his public tweet. The first one is about high time invested on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure while the second is regarding long hours wasted before realizing the value of enterprise market.
Hermelin started his service for Google’s cloud team from mid-2012, which brings his term to 18 months before the availability of Google Compute Engine. This aided as a medium to deliver a valedictory post in which he stated about trends he thought the future might be holding.
He starts the tweet by saying that the past year and a half showcased broad spectrum of efforts from Google in the cloud coliseum. Aspects such as publication note in March 2017 about Diane Greene, which had a line of new customers who desired to step ahead from the existing genre, stands Colgate-Palmolive, eBay, and Verizon, who were the then members of Fortune 500. later, with Google’s ‘poster child’ for cloud suites, Snapchat, which was interesting yet lacked an oomph of the former three are its proclaimed mistake with smart engineering, he supports. When talked about competitors, Google is always ahead of the curve when talked about containers and wasted time built to feature AWS as demanded by their customers. Its mishaps are investments in marketing, sales, support and solutions which may portray the company weak in front of competitors he concludes.
Regardless of all these factors, there has been a significant growth in Google. With Google CEO Sundar Pichai saying earlier this year that the company’s cloud arm was securing larger and more strategic deals, the company can be portrayed secure this year.
