Google is a company that seems to always be one step ahead of the crowd when it comes to producing the latest technology and unlocking innovations. In the last few years, we've seen the Google Cloud Platform evolve with disruptive solutions spanning all the way from machine learning and artificial intelligence, to integrations with IoT (the Internet of Things).

Enterprise communications have transformed drastically in recent years. We've moved from the point of having to install on-premise PBXs and clumsy on-prem VoIP systems into our office environments, to being able to access all the UC&C technology we need on demand through UCaaS providers like RingCentral and 8x8.
Healthcare has always been one of the most complicated verticals for any technology vendor. There's so much to think about, from privacy regulations like HIPAA to patient care and innovation. Of course, despite the complexity of the healthcare space, it's also a market that's packed full of potential, which makes it difficult big movers like Google to ignore.
At sunset, in Austin, Texas, millions of bats come flying, seemingly simultaneously and forever, into the night sky just as our message migrations ascend into Google Cloud.
