Google is a Leader at the Gartner® Magic Quadrant™
Google Cloud finished the year with a positive note as Gartner® positioned Google as a Leader for the second year in a row in the 2021 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Cloud Database Management Systems (DBMS).
Gartner identified Google’s unified capabilities across both transactional and analytical use cases and showcased progress in areas like data management consistency, high speed processing and ingestion, security, elasticity, advanced analytics, and more.
Google Cloud Platform supports various database platform as a service (dbPaaS) products, from fully managed versions of products from third-party providers to its own products, addressing both transactional and analytics use cases.
Google’s focus on openness is shown by products such as BigQuery Omni, a multicloud that enables GCP customers to access data via BigQuery on other CSPs’ platforms.
Let’s take a look at Google Cloud Platform’s Strengths:
- Augmented Data Management Focus and Ecosystem Vision:
Google Cloud Dataplex provides unification across GCP data services with automatic data discovery, metadata harvesting, life cycle management, data quality, integration and governance capabilities. GCP is leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) and ML capabilities to augment this ecosystem as much as possible. Google is a leader in the AI and ML space (for example — TensorFlow).
- Open Cloud Infrastructure With Modern Capabilities:
GCP provides a modern cloud environment. Most offerings are serverless, and Google’s Colossus data store provides a common framework for data, enabling features such as federated queries between Spanner and BigQuery. Further, GCP is pursuing a strategy of openness and has started allowing easy access and consumption of data in other clouds through products like BigQuery Omni.
- Differentiated Datasets and Growing Vertical Industry Focus:
GCP provides easy integration and consumption of proprietary Google datasets such as Google Trends, Google Maps, Google Search, Google Ads and others. GCP is also investing in streamlined, vertical industry solutions with a dedicated and growing industry-oriented sales force.
Organizations across multiple industries are in the midst of digitally transforming their businesses. The driving force behind these shifts will be people with the skills required to implement and maintain large-scale cloud deployments, particularly in areas like artificial intelligence, machine learning, data analytics, application development, security, and cloud architecture.
Google Cloud Skills Boost is the definitive destination for online learning, skills development, and certifications, managed and delivered directly by Google Cloud.
