Güler started his speech by thanking his business partners. Emphasizing that there is strong partner support and that this is crucial, Güler underlined that there are different opportunities for companies using Google Cloud, but only uncertainty and confusion for those who don’t.
He talked about the importance of AI-assisted work and said that complex codes were written for simple jobs in the past, but today simple codes are doing great things. He went on to point out that Serverless technology eliminates servers and the need for redundant infrastructure. Finally, Güler stated that Google Cloud has continued its investments rapidly and increased its 3-year investment plans by 1.5 times, introducing 130 new products.
Then, Google Cloud invited customers to their sessions. Companies using Cloud infrastructure shared how they use the platform, its benefits for their companies, and their success stories.
