Maven Wave's Guide to Google Cloud News

As some employees continue to work from home while others return to offices part-time, and some retailers and restaurants cautiously reopen, we’re all still continually adjusting to this less-than-normal year.

  • Google Cloud and SAP partner to help customers digitally transform: The two organizations have announced a new SAP data center powered by Google Cloud infrastructure. This data center will be dedicated solely to running SAP applications to support customers without the risk of being impacted by external influence.
  • Google announces new features to coincide with 15 years of Google Maps: Google announced some new Maps features in line with its 15 year anniversary.

As an early entrant to the Google Cloud Partner ecosystem, we at Maven Wave take a look back at the journey of seeing the platform grow and evolve from beta to the industry leader it is today.
  • Google adds new firewall features to provide additional flexibility and control: Google has introduced new firewall features. Hierarchical firewall policies will allow for both centralized control at the organization and folder level with the ability to delegate more granular control to a project’s owner.
