Google Cloud is competing with Amazon Web Services and Microsoft for bigger share in the fast-growing cloud market. These 22 executives are leading Google's bid to expand its reach in cloud computing. These executives are focused on expanding sales, partnerships, and customer relationships, as well as building technology like artificial intelligence and cloud infrastructure. Click here for more BI Prime stories.  With Amazon and Microsoft gobbling up large portions of the share on the cloud market, Google Cloud is playing catch-up. Still, with former Oracle veteran Thomas Kurian now well into his second year as Google Cloud CEO, the search giant has expanded on its cloud ambitions. Last year, it hired a new leader, Robert Enslin from SAP, to head sales, customer operations, and partnerships. During its most recent earnings call in April, Alphabet revealed that Google Cloud generated $2.8 billion in revenue in the past quarter, a 52% year-over-year increase. Google CEO Sundar Pichai had also said Google Cloud plans to triple its sales force in the next few years. On top of that, Google Cloud recently made changes in its sales organization to go after bigger customers and reward high-performing sales employees.  Google Cloud is also releasing more products to cater to the enterprise. For example, last year it launched Anthos, a hybrid cloud product – meaning it allows customers to run their applications and data not only on Google Cloud, but also on private data centers. Notably, it can even run on rival clouds – a strategy Kurian reportedly tried to execute at Oracle. With Anthos, Google Cloud beat Amazon to launching a generally-available hybrid cloud product. It's also launching products to hone in on specific industries like retail and telecommunications. Some analysts say that these changes at Google Cloud, which seem to be borrowed from Oracle, could drive a cultural clash. "Today, Google's enterprise division is very different than it was just a few years ago as it continues to change its attitude toward understanding customer needs and 'meeting the customer where the customer is,' David Smith, distinguished VP analyst at Gartner, wrote. "New bold leadership at Google Cloud is allowing more focus on opportunities that leverage synergies between its cloud business and advertising and marketing."

Some of its advantages, customers say, are its innovation. Another is its deep roots in Kubernetes, a cloud project for running large scale applications that was started by Google engineers. It's also partnering with smaller companies that built their business around open source software. As Google Cloud aims to become a larger cloud player, these are the 22 executives who are leading the charge.SEE ALSO: Here's how VMware is putting its $550 million acquisition of Heptio to work as it builds a new future around Kubernetes, the red-hot cloud software created by Google Thomas Kurian is making big changes as Google Cloud's CEO. Title: CEO, Google Cloud Thomas Kurian joined Google in November 2018. He took the place of former Google Cloud CEO Diane Greene, who announced her departure late last year.  Before Google, Kurian spent 22 years at Oracle, where he most recently served as the president of product development. And prior to Oracle, he worked at McKinsey as a business analyst and engagement manager. Currently, Kurian serves as a member of the Stanford Graduate School of Business Advisory Council and Princeton University School of Engineering Advisory Council. Recently, Business Insider reported that under Kurian, Google Cloud has changed how it compensates salespeople to focus more on bonuses and incentives – a move that's similar to what Oracle does. "He's basically applying the Oracle playbook," Jeb Su, vice president of advanced technologies at Atherton Technology Research, told Business Insider. "He's reinforcing the sales force and changing how salespeople are paid...What Kurian is doing is really transforming Google Cloud as a real enterprise software company with the right incentives in terms of sales and with the appropriate salesforce." Overall, David Smith, distinguished VP analyst at Gartner, believes that Kurian is doubling down on the enterprise efforts that former Google Cloud CEO Diane Greene began. "With the arrival of Thomas Kurian, we see more discipline in pricing and a renewed, more focused investment in building a larger, more capable enterprise sales team," Smith wrote. "These are encouraging signs, but we believe there will still be a transition period of several years as sales teams are built and/or reoriented to sell the traditional enterprise value propositions of the public cloud," Smith said.  Robert Enslin spent nearly three decades at SAP. Title: President of Global Customer Operations Robert Enslin joined Google Cloud in April to head up global customer operations, which includes sales and working with customers and partners. Before Google, Enslin spent 27 years at SAP and served in various sales and operations roles. Most recently, he worked as president of the cloud business group and an executive board member. At SAP, he developed and managed the company's cloud product portfolio. Besides working in tech, Enslin sits on the Board of Directors of Discovery Limited in South Africa and the container startup Docker. Jeb Su, vice president of advanced technologies at Atherton Technology Research, says Enslin is bringing a major focus on customers from SAP to Google Cloud. "He's doing two things," Su said. "First of all, he's really there to understand what are the needs of enterprise customers. That's really important because you can have the best technology in the world, but if you can't understand what customers need it's pointless. Then from that understanding of customers, he's really building solutions, and that's what Google lacks." Hiring Enslin was one of Google's "significant strides" to make its cloud business more viable, David Smith, distinguished VP analyst at Gartner, wrote. "Actions include hiring Thomas Kurian and Rob Enslin, strategic investments in sales and marketing, and partnerships with integrators and service firms to drive more enterprise adoption," Smith wrote. "We look for increased focus on the enterprise to pay dividends for Google as it gains greater adoption over the next year." Before Google, John Jester worked at Microsoft for nearly 20 years. Title: Vice President of Customer Experience John Jester is the vice president of customer experience at Google Cloud.

"She's the next in the series of new leaders that Thomas Kurian and Rob Enslin are bringing in," Tony Safoian, CEO of SADA Systems, a Google Cloud partner, told Business Insider. "They're deploying certain structures in their go-to-market plan that are more meaningful to partners and create a better customer experience."   Urs Hölzle was Google's first Vice President of engineering.

Last year Jeff Bezos and his wife MacKenzie divorced, leaving her with a fortune of about $36 billion and thirteenth-richest person in the world. In a blog post on Tuesday MacKenzie announced she has donated $1.7 billion to 116 organizations over the past year. She has also changed her name to MacKenzie Scott. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. MacKenzie Scott, ex-wife of Amazon's billionaire chief executive Jeff Bezos, has donated $1.7 billion of her wealth in the past year to causes including racial equality, LGBTQ rights, public health and climate change, she said in a blog post on Tuesday. Scott, who was previously known as MacKenzie Bezos, also announced her new last name, which she said was taken from her middle name. Last year, Scott signed the Giving Pledge in a commitment to donate the majority of her fortune after her split from Bezos — the world's richest man — left her with a 4% stake in Amazon. "Like many, I watched the first half of 2020 with a mixture of heartbreak and horror," she wrote in a post on Medium. "I began work to complete my pledge with the belief that my life had yielded two assets that could be of particular value to others: the money these systems helped deliver to me, and a conviction that people who have experience with inequities are the ones best equipped to design solutions," she added. In her blog post Scott listed a total of 116 organizations which she has donated to. She also broke down how much she has donated to various causes by category, the top three causes Scott donated to were: racial equity ($587 million), economic mobility ($400 millon), and gender equity ($133 million). At the time of the divorce, Scott's Amazon stake was worth about $36 billion. Her fortune has grown to over $60 billion with a jump in Amazon's shares this year. Jeff Bezos' fortune has also skyrocketed, growing by more than $60 billion since the beginning of this year putting his net worth at roughly $178 billion, per Bloomberg's Billionaires Index. Scott made her announcement a day before Jeff Bezos will appear for his first-ever Congressional testimony in front of an antitrust panel, which has been investigating how Amazon has allegedly used its market power to hurt smaller rivals.Join the conversation about this story »

(Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute) When the Shewanella oneidensis bacterium "breathes" in certain metal and sulfur compounds anaerobically, the way an aerobic organism would process oxygen, it produces materials that could be used to enhance electronics, electrochemical energy storage, and drug-delivery devices. The ability of this bacterium to produce molybdenum disulfide -- a material that is able to transfer electrons easily, like graphene -- is the focus of research published in Biointerphases by a team of engineers from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

In the Star Wars universe, the Force is everywhere.The Force is a built-in metaphor machine, basically, a bellwether any Star Wars narrative can gesture toward to reinforce themes, build drama, or progress the story.It's full of trauma, tragedy, resonant with a whole galaxy's worth of suffering.That echo of pain is the background to a classic Star Wars setup: a handful of heroes against a galaxy of fascists, racing against time and impossible odds for a chance at hope.It makes sense that Electronic Arts would release a Star Wars game at this juncture that hews so closely to the familiar beats of the franchise.Up until now, the company's releases have been scant and disappointing, to the point that it's hard not to wonder why Disney's Lucasfilm, a production house more than happy to part ways with collaborators performing below expectations, hasn't cut the publisher loose.

Google Maps has been my hero and savior many times I traveled abroad – or even in India where I don’t speak the local language.It’s not always perfect, however.While the app might help me get near the place, I often have a hard time locating it, and I end up roaming around like a headless chicken.Thankfully, Google is rolling out a new feature for the app that speaks the name and address of the place in the local language.To trigger this, open the information card of the place, and tap on the speaker icon as shown below.This is quite handy when you want to ask a passerby about a place or tell a taxi driver where you want to go.

NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) has produced a giant new image of the southern sky, something constructed from more than 200 images captured during the mission’s first year.According to the space agency, the panorama includes 29 of the exoplanets that were discovered by TESS, as well as more than 1,000 candidate planets that may join those 29.TESS is often referred to as a planet-hunter — it is designed to look for exoplanets by conducting sky surveys using four cameras with a total of 16 CCDs.Every 30 minutes, these cameras snap an image of an entire sector of the sky, according to NASA, which says the CCDs collectively captured more than 15,000 images over 30-minute durations.That massive number amounts to more than 20TB of data on the southern sky where TESS spent its first year making observations.All 20TB have been sent back to researchers on Earth; NASA says it’s the equivalent of having streamed around 6,000 HD movies.

They can be used in various fields including entertainment systems, industrial machinery, drones, and even surgeries that are performed by doctors who are not in the same physical location as their patients.Making such systems less complicated while carrying out their tasks successfully is a key factor for improving the teleoperation performance and experience.The authors published their results this September in IEEE/CAA Journal of Automatica Sinica, a joint publication of the IEEE and the Chinese Association of Automation.The authors focused their study on state convergence, a type of algorithm that is widely used in modeling teleoperation systems and the interactions occurred within the system.It is also considered an elegant design procedure through which the teleoperation system can function in an autonomous way and impose desired dynamic behavior between a "master" device that humans operate on and a "slave" device, the device or robot that carries out the action remotely ordered by the "master".Comparing to standard state convergence, the authors used a less complicated version of the algorithm called the composited stated convergence scheme by reducing the number of communication channels between the mater and the salve devices yet still achieved the desired outcome, the desired dynamic response that was expected of the teleoperations system.

For much of the 2000s, President Donald Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani billed himself as a high-level security consultant after presiding as mayor of New York during the 9/11 terror attacks.But NBC News reported that shortly after being named Trump's cybersecurity adviser in 2017, Giuliani went to an Apple Store to unlock his iPhone after entering the wrong passcode at least 10 times in a row.A former Apple store employee told NBC Giuliani's passcode mistake was "very sloppy," adding, "Trump had just named him as an informal adviser on cybersecurity and here, he couldn't even master the fundamentals of securing your own device."For much of the 2000s, President Donald Trump's personal attorney billed himself as a high-level security consultant after presiding as mayor of New York City during the 9/11 terror attacks.But shortly after being named Trump's cybersecurity adviser in 2017, Giuliani needed cyber assistance of his own to unlock his iPhone after entering the wrong passcode at least 10 times in a row, NBC News reported, citing two sources familiar with the matter and an Apple Store document from the location in San Francisco that Giuliani visited.Giuliani has long been known for experiencing technical difficulties online on platforms like Twitter, and for accidentally butt-dialing and pocket-dialing reporters.

The move comes 22 months after Digital Realty's $7.6bn all-stock deal to snaffle DuPont Fabros in late 2017 – one of the fattest data centre buys that year – and around 11 months since the slurp of Brazil-based bit barn biz Ascenty for $2.25bn.The latest proposal will be a boost for Digital Realty's capacity in Europe, where it currently has a presence in four cities.Interxion will add 13 cities to this list, and take the local operation to anticipated revenue of $1.1bn, behind the biggest player in the continent, Equinix at $1.8bn.Bill Stein, Digital Realty CEO, said in a call with analysts that it needs a Gatling-gun approach to data centres, "covering the full product spectrum, from small footprint cage and cabinet environments, all the way up to multi-megawatt dedicated hyperscale facilities on a truly global basis".Digital Realty has 18 data centres in the US and locations in Australia, China, Japan and Singapore.It also runs three centres in Brazil, and picked up parts of Telecity, which Equinix was forced to sell when the European Commission raised competition concerns.
