Diane Greene is New Head of the Cloud Business by Alphabet Inc (GOOG)’s Google


Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL)’s Google has created corporate accounts; Google for Work, Google Cloud Platform, and Google Apps and at the same time named VMware founder Diane Greene to head the converged team of the cloud businesses. The aim here is to consolidate new products in the fields of engineering, marketing, and the sales team.

Google is confident that Greene will bring in the legitimate enterprise to the table since she has the capability of delivering consumer-graded experiences. At the same time, she will give Google the leadership that has been missing to date.

The move comes amidst speculations from the larger market that Google is not an enterprise that can handle cloud business.

However, the speculations have been downplayed by senior vice president of technical infrastructure, Urs Hölzle. Hölzle hinted that Google had come up with actions to counter the predictions and to prove that it is certainly serious about cloud business.

Announcing the news about Greene’s appointment in a blog post, Sundar Pichai, chief executive emphasized that as a long-time veteran of the industry, Greene would handle it with much ease. At the same time, Greene’s experience at VMware as the Chief Executive will come in handy in helping her steer Google’s credibility to the next level.

Being one of the earliest cloud companies, Google understands the need for epitomizing. More often than not and probably on a daily basis, many consumers use such cloud services like Gmail, Google Docs, Google Drive, and Google Calendar.

Meanwhile, New York Times Co (NYSE:NYT) has reported that Google is also intending to buy Greene’s mysterious startup Bebob previously known as Demeterr.

In the blog post, Pichai said that the move to acquire Bebob will give leads to new development platforms that would make it easy to build and maintain enterprise applications. This could also play a great role in the integration of the cloud platform. As such the whole of Bebob team will become part of Google once the acquisition is complete.
