Google Cloud recently unveiled three new services to empower customers with a unified data cloud strategy. The services are Dataplex, Analytics Hub, and Datastream that will provide organizations with real-time insights powered by Machine Learning (ML).
The three services will assist organizations to get rid of data silos and will help them predict business outcomes and thus will empower users to make well-informed and real-time decisions, as explained by Google during the inaugural virtual ‘Data Cloud Summit’.
According to Gerrit Kazmaier, Vice President & General Manager, Databases, Data Analytics and Looker, Google Cloud, “Data must be thought of as an ability that integrates all aspects of working with it. Every industry is accelerating their shift of being digital-first as they recognize data to be an essential ingredient of value creation and key to advancing their digital transformation.”
Kazmaier also accentuated that the team at Google Cloud is committed to helping customers build the most powerful data cloud to unlock value and real-time insights, needed for future-proofing the business.
A survey by Gartner established that organizations estimate the average cost of poor data quality to be at $12.8 million per year.
By leveraging Google Cloud’s data platform organizations can opt for a comprehensive approach to their full data lifecycle, from systems that run in their business to the AI and machine learning tools that predict and automate their future.
Datastream enables customers to replicate data streams in real-time, from Oracle and MySQL databases to Google Cloud services such as Big Query, Cloud SQL, Google Cloud Storage, and Cloud Spanner.
Analytics Hub is an innovative capacity that equips companies to create, curate, and manage analytics exchanges securely and in real-time.
Available in preview, Dataplex is an intelligent data fabric that provides an integrated analytics experience. This brings the very best of Google Cloud & open-source together.
Google Cloud officials also revealed that this integration of the three services viz. Dataplex, Analytics Hub, and Datastream with open-source equips organizations better to curate, secure, analyze, and integrate their data at scale.
About Google Cloud
Google Cloud consists of a set of physical assets such as computers and hard disk drives, and virtual resources such as machines (VMs) that are contained in Google’s data centers across the globe. Each data center is in a region. Regions, in turn, are a collection of zones, isolated from each other within the region. The distribution of resources offers several benefits, including redundancy in case of failure and reduced latency by locating resources closer to clients. The distribution also introduces some rules about how resources can be used together. The list of available Google Cloud services is long and it keeps on growing; the latest additions being: whenever, an application or website is developed on Google Cloud, these services are integrated into several permutations and combinations to provide exactly the customized infrastructure required by a particular business and then codes are added to enable the scenarios that companies exactly want to build.
