Google is the last of the big public cloud providers to sign up to Veritas' 360 Data Management platform, helping businesses prepare for the GDPR by offering better data protection, email compliance readiness and reduced data storage costs in one tidy package.
SAP has moved in recent years to encourage the multinational base of corporate customers using its financial planning and other business applications to switch from traditional packaged software running on clients' own computers to cloud delivery.

/PRNewswire/ Neudesic, a nationally recognized business and technology consulting firm, today announced it has joined the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) Partner Community, capitalizing on the latest tools and technologies that support enterprises on their path to digital evolution. "The young people so rejoice when G Suite gets rolled out", she said, referring to versions of Gmail and Google Docs for the enterprise, so why not move the rest of the IT department to Google's servers, too?

Philadelphia also picked up a pair of draft picks in the deal - a fourth-round selection and a conditional seven-rounder in 2017. TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun noted the Flyers retained 4.7 per cent of Streit's salary ($5.25 million cap hit) in that trade.
Fei-Fei Li, the chief scientist of AI and machine learning at Google Cloud, showed off some new machine learning and AI tools such as the Video Intelligence API, at the conference as well.
During a brief press conference, Greene took the opportunity try to "smash" a longstanding concern among business buyers that it often changes direction with little warning. "Our focus on data and cloud-driven solutions to drive enterprise digital evolution aligns very well with the Container Engine, BigQuery, Compute Engine, and many other technologies in the GCP stack".
But Eric Schmidt, executive chairman of Google's parent company Alphabet, offered a simpler explanation. Greene said that Thursday will bring a host of product news across Google Cloud's offerings.
"Machine learning finds previously hidden patterns in data", Pichai said.
