What happened at Google Cloud Next Amsterdam’17, the largest Google Cloud event in the Benelux?
First of all: the event was quite a success. Over 1,500 people from the Google ecosystem crossed the busy IJ River to attend the event in Amsterdam-Noord. Weeks in advance, Google had to close the registration already as the venue space limitations were reached.
The Next program offered a good overview of Google’s state of art from a business user perspective. Machine learning, video search, application development for beginners, the global cloud infrastructure, the openness of the Google Cloud, security (GDPR!) …. all hot topics in enterprise IT were touched. The overall message was clear: Google Cloud and Google G Suite are perfectly suited to address the needs of even the most complex and demanding enterprises and businesses.
The presence of many local and international Google partners demonstrated that a broad array of service providers for the implementation, migration and integration of Google solutions is available right now. There is an ample choice of partners to support companies in their innovation and transformation of their processes with Google and with solutions in the Google Marketplace.
Google is committed to GDPR compliance across G Suite and Google Cloud when the GDPR takes effect.
Google put VOGSY in the spotlights as a showcase for extending G Suite with mobile business applications. VOGSY simplifies quote-to-cash processes while providing engaging and intelligent interactions for knowledge workers, in a social media way.
Leo Koster, CEO VOGSY, explained how professional services firms can innovate and attain scalable global growth, by the use of the new business app. He also shared how entertainment company Unlimited Productions accelerated its global growth with VOGSY.
The VOGSY solution is getting market traction. Richard van Delft, Managing Partner G-workplace: “VOGSY is for us the best example of how ERP cloud technology is changing the world. Software solutions for managing your valuable resources are often expensive, difficult to customize and hard to use. VOGSY is setting a new standard for ERP solutions.” G-workplace is a service organization that implements Google cloud technologies. VOGSY enables G-workplace to work more efficient and to keep control of the core processes.
