Google integrates Firebase deeper into its Cloud Platform

Diane Greene, senior vice president of Google's cloud business, recalled that Disney spoke at last year's conference "when they were just dabbling in the cloud".

SAP will be collaborating with Google to leverage artificial intelligence/machine learning initiatives.

For more information on Google's new products and developments, visit Google Cloud's Big Data and Machine Learning Blog. Apart from creating a highly secure service, the partnership will also allow Google and SAP to continue developing a cloud solution that's perfectly scalable and suitable for all businesses. For example, a long surveillance video of an empty parking lot can be quickly scanned through by having the feature pinpoint only parts in the video where a human is present.

The pact will allow customers to run SAP's powerful database from laptops and other memory-constrained computers using streamlined HANA express edition software, while off-loading more complex tasks to Google's cloud delivery platform.

To date, many of Google's cloud customers have been technology firms, such as social media firm Snap (SNAP), Spotify, Evernote and Zulily.

Google's cloud regions are going places.

Kaggle prides itself on possessing AI innovation apps and tools.

Meanwhile, Google also announced that Cloud SQL now supports PostreSQL. "This is an incredibly serious mission. With machine learning becoming increasingly important, SAP and Google will also collaborate in this area, taking full advantage of the business and technology capabilities of both industry leaders", added Leukert.
