Big data has emerged as a critical component of running a successful company. With the right data, any business can learn more about their target audience, enhance their USP, and even out-perform their competition. In a world where everything appears to be connected, there's more data available for organizations to access than ever before. Of course, before firms can tap into the benefits that this information offers, they need to know how to capture, clean, and analyze their insights. Enter Google Cloud Big Data.
Google was born and raised in the cloud, so you can rest assured that this company knows better than most how important it is to stay secure in an online environment. Every aspect of the GCP is designed with security in mind. In fact, when you tap into the Google architecture for things like collaboration, data storage, and even machine learning, you're accessing the very same security solutions that Google uses to keep itself secure.
It doesn't matter whether you operate in the world of finance, health, or even retail, the chances are that you've already heard of "Big Data". The concept of Big Data refers to any information that would otherwise be too expensive to manage, store, and analyze using traditional monolithic or relational database systems. These systems are frequently inefficient because they're inflexible when it comes to storing unstructured information like text, images, and video.
It's safe to say that the cloud is -the- ultimate technology infrastructure of the future. While there are still plenty of companies out there who maintain their systems on-premise, or in a hybrid environment, the majority of vendors are looking towards the cloud for resilience and ROI. In fact, Gartner market research suggests that by 2020, cloud computing will have emerged as a $383 billion market - and it's easy to see why.
Back in 2016, Google announced the release of their brand-new enterprise-focused "Identity and Access Management" portfolio for the Google Cloud Platform. The "IAM" toolset is designed to give users the opportunity to assign specific permissions to cloud platform resources, using pre-defined roles.
Want to learn more about your customers? Who doesn't? In a world where customers are becoming increasingly interested in "personalized" experiences, the brick and mortar retail industry is being forced to rethink the way it connects with customers. If you can't give your clients the unforgettable moments they crave, then your retail business could begin to crumble.
Recently, the only eCommerce platform specifically designed to support the needs of small-to-midsized companies announced an incredible migration success on the Google Cloud.

On the 1st of May 2018, Google announced a new solution for IT administrators who want to make the most out of the hybrid and multi-cloud architecture. The beta launch of the new "Cloud Composer" solution - a managed service for Apache Airflow, makes workflow management and creation simple and consistent.
Lately, it appears there's a never-ending stream of security breaches appearing in the media. Data in the cloud gets exposed, and we all find ourselves panicking over whether we can really keep our information secure.
