You wonder a bit, as Thomas Kurian shy as smiling and pretty lost on the stage. The Show will take his guests, the leaders of partner companies, which are actually just there to confirm its magnificence. You can feel obviously comfortable on stage –a joke, a catchy phrase, a joke, finish. Kurian is also stiff and reads the questions from a Teleprompter. And then he is once again the Only one wearing a suit – a habit for which he must in California, often times taunting. This is intended to motivate the man to start the big catch-up, staff and customers to win?
It is a presentation of Google Cloud in San Francisco, Kurians first appearance since his appointment as chief in November last year. Its task is to reduce the size of the enormous lead of Amazon and Microsoft in the business with the storage of data on the Internet, so the Cloud. It is a lucrative business. Amazon is financing its rapid Expansion, even for Microsoft it is now an important pillar. Google wants to reduce its dependence on the advertising market.
It makes Kurians task easier is that you can not Google neither used to stand on the first place, especially the locker can handle it. And the competition is strong: Amazon invented the Cloud business about twelve years ago, as it needed for its own shops a lot of server space. Since then, the market enjoys the trust of the leader among its customers large. Microsoft in turn has an army of sellers who maintain some of them for twenty or thirty years of contacts to your customers.
And Google? Google have the best product, says the in Kerala, India, born to Kurian. He had spoken in his first few weeks with hundreds of customers and potential customers, he says. "And all say the same thing to me: you will love our product, but you have no relationship with Google." The want to change Kurian and is expanding his sales team. Is that the best product does not bring anything, if you bring it to the man, is an insight that has been set by Kurian previously at Oracle, where he has 22 years spent. Grow through better Sell – for many Googlers, this should be a sobering strategy that fine-tunes the typical Silicon Valley employee to his great product. A bit of it, as is now finally an adult in the room, the shows, the gifted children, how to raise a proper Business.
But then Kurian has announce a technical innovation to which he wants to distance himself from the competition: Google offers to its customers a platform by the name of Anthos, thanks to the company their data between their own servers, Google Cloud, and even the Clouds of competitors like Amazon to move, without changing anything to your System.
At the end, one is no longer surprised, by the way. Because in a personal interview with Thomas Kurian is pretty loose and funny.
