At this very moment, every single company is experiencing some kind of digital transformation. As Gerrit Kazmaier, GM and VP of Database, Data Analytics, and Looker at Google Cloud, explained during his keynote address at this year’s Data Cloud Summit, “to transform, we cannot apply technologies and architectures that are rooted in outdated paradigms.”
In the digital-first era, there’s an app that solves just about any dilemma an organization could encounter — from connecting remote employees to analyzing and assessing business data. That means enterprise success hinges on the strategic development of dynamic, engaging applications that cut through the noise.
As an industry leader, Google has never shied away from looking toward the future, and that certainly rang true at Google Cloud Next 2021. With the event tagline, “Solving for what’s next,” Google Cloud CEO Thomas Kurian took the stage to share exactly how Google is enabling companies to do just that.
Google Cloud Next 2021 is nearly here once again, and we almost can’t believe it. (Did the last year fly by or is it just us?) If you’re not familiar with Google Cloud Next, it’s Google’s annual conference that focuses entirely on the present and future of cloud and provides a wealth of knowledge that’s sure to inspire. This year, the event runs from October 12–14 and will be fully digital.

Google Cloud promoted its 2021 Data Cloud Summit with one key phrase - “we can’t predict the future, but we can be ready for it.” And if there’s anything the past year and a half has taught us, it’s exactly that. As the COVID-19 pandemic accelerated digital adoption,
The phrase “digital transformation” is so widely used these days that some people go so far as to say that the term has become essentially meaningless. While the term may be a bit overused, facts on the ground speak to a reality where many areas of financial services are indeed being transformed by the adoption of digital technologies, practices and orientation.
