This IDC Perspective provides our guidance for end users as they consider their cloud platform options in this increasingly competitive market. A team of IDC analysts virtually attended the recent Google Cloud Platform (GCP) digital event to learn about the company's set of industry offerings.
"The big wins will revolve around building industry-specific decision models. GCP certainly has technical leadership in this area and both individual companies and independent software vendors make use of the tools. Industry initiatives at competitive platform providers (both cloud service providers and large enterprise application vendors) have begun to include industry data models and semantic graphs. We hope to see Google undertake a similar effort as it will facilitate getting to outcomes faster for the customer base and make GCP more attractive to potential partners in the ecosystem," said Bob Parker, senior vice president, Enterprise Applications, Data Intelligence, Services, and Industry Research.
