The search engine giant has been providing its services for businesses since 2002, and they have been steadily building more products and services to help make the enterprise and SMBs more productive. Gmail, Docs and Chromebooks have been a welcomed addition in the realm of productivity, and Google's own Cloud platform has been on top of it. As a matter of fact, over 60 percent of the Fortune 500 actively use the company's Google for Work production. Cloud, after all, is the beginning of future, and Google has gone to great lengths to invest in the service. As such, Google will be combining all of its cloud businesses to work in a more coordinated operation.
Through the official Google For Work blog, the search engine giant has announced that Diane Greene, co-founder of VMWare, will be leading a new team that combines all of Google's cloud businesses that include Google for Work, Cloud Platform and Google Apps. The new business will allow Google to operate in a more integrated fashion as it will be bringing product, engineering, marketing and sales together. Diane Greene has been a long-time veteran in the industry, and has already served three years as a part of Google's Board of Directors.
Google has also entered into an agreement to acquire a startup that was founded by Greene: bebop. According to the blog post, the startup is a new development platform that makes it easy to build and maintain enterprise applications. Google believes that this will help more businesses in finding great applications and earn the benefits that come with cloud computing. Google will also be acquiring the team behind bebop to help them provide integrated cloud products at every level from end-user platforms to developer frameworks. Greene and the bebop team will be joining the search engine giant once the deal closes.
