Google Cloud Platform for future-proof solutions

Competitiveness and readiness for the future are two of the big issues that IT decision-makers are currently having to deal with. The requirements of IT infrastructure are increasing and tried and tested solutions have to be reviewed: can resources that are required at short notice be made available with flexibility? Will the existing platform offer developers sufficient scope to work in an agile way in future without having to worry about the infrastructure required themselves?

With the Google Cloud, companies are already securing all of the tools they require in the age of increasing digitisation. As the newest of the public clouds, the Google Cloud has been tailored perfectly to the challenges currently facing digital companies. The Google Cloud Platform uses the same technology as services used millions of times over throughout the world: Google Maps, Gmail, YouTube, etc.

Advantages of the Google Cloud Platform

Future-proof success


The technology of the Google Cloud Platform has been developed in such a way that it will be able to cope with any changes in the future. Many familiar applications from the Google portfolio run successfully in this infrastructure (Gmail, YouTube, ...).

Making optimal use of data


Get to know your customers better or use data from production for profitable improvements. The Google Cloud has all of the tools required for big data and business analytics.

Agile and flexible


Respond at any time to the latest requirements of your industry. Google Cloud provides you with the necessary capacity, availability and performance.

Google Cloud Services

The Google Cloud has all of the important services and applications that allow your company to use its data more efficiently. This includes services in the areas of Compute, big data, identity and security, storage and networking.

This means that even complex infrastructures that many companies still operate in their own computer centres at the moment can be mapped in the Google Cloud. The advantage of the cloud, however, lies in its flexible scalability which allows it to respond at any time to increasing demand.
