Google Cloud has doubled down on integrations with the likes of ServiceNow, GitLab and MongoDB, while also forming tighter partnerships with channel partner giants Accenture and HCLTech to accelerate migrations to Google Cloud.
At Google Cloud Next 2022 this week, the cloud giant unveiled a slew of enhanced technology and channel partnerships with the goal driving more sales and becoming the most open cloud platform in the world.
Additionally, the Mountain View, Calif.-based company launched dozens of new Google products and services at Google Cloud Next around artificial intelligence (AI), Google Workspace and BigQuery, to name a few.
Google Cloud also explained to CRN that integration with cybersecurity company Mandiant is in full swing.
Google cloud unit is striving to increase its global cloud market share which currently stands at approximately 10 percent worldwide share, according to market data from Synergy Research Group, trailing Microsoft Azure at 21 percent share and Amazon Web Services at 34 percent share.
Google Cloud plans to increase its market share by having the most open cloud platform in the world, the best cloud cybersecurity portfolio, and driving sales through a partner-centric go-to-market strategy with a 100 percent partner attach rate, Google Cloud CEO Thomas Kurian told CRN this year.
Google Cloud revenue has been growing at a fast rate this year. The company generated nearly $6.3 billion in sales during its second quarter 2022, representing a revenue increase of 36 percent year over year.
With the new technology and channel partnerships unveiled at Google Cloud Next, Kurian is looking to make his hopes of climbing the cloud market share ranks come true.
