Google to Move all of its Cloud Services Under One Umbrella
Google's shuffling its alphabet again. The company announced on Thursday that it will condense all of its cloud-based internet services -- including Google for Work, Cloud Platform, and Google Apps -- under a single company that has yet to be named. "This new business will bring together product, engineering, marketing and sales and allow us to operate in a much more integrated, coordinated fashion," Google CEO Sundar Pichai said in a statement. Former CEO and founder of VMWare Diane Greene is expected to head up the new company.
Additionally, this new company will be acquiring another Greene-founded startup: Bebop, a "development platform that makes it easy to build and maintain enterprise applications." With it, Google hopes to build out a number of cloud-based end-user products, platforms and applications.
