Google Product Management Director Andrew Toy and Google Head of Marketing of Mobility and Devices Nick King will go more in-depth on these topics, discussing the techniques Google use to cover its endpoints globally.
Learn how four startups in very different industries used Google Cloud to grow their businesses. From Indraneel Mukherjee, of Liftigniter, a company which utilizes machine personalization to power user interactions on every digital touchpoint, to Matthew Halliday, whose startup Incorta computes large quantities of complex data, to Anna Ottosson of Greta, a peer-to-peer distribution script that takes website and app visitors and turns them into distributing POPs, each have used Google Cloud to power their business.
Join Bram Bout, Google director of education; Benny Ayalew, Google Enterprise Cloud platform sales engineer; and Paul Rossman, Google technical program manager discuss how the cloud can transform the higher education sector. They’ll talk about how the cloud is already being used in infrastructure & operations, application development, and big data and machine learning - and just how much the cloud can transform colleges and universities.
