Source: French companies increasingly adopt Google Cloud with the support of partners from Google Cloud
The future is in the cloud. This is a sentiment we heard from many of the more than 3,000 attendees that joined us at our Paris Cloud Summit this week, and more generally with French companies as they embark on their digital transformation journeys.
Companies in France, and everywhere in the world, have embraced the cost benefits of cloud computing. In addition to modernizing their infrastructure and “lifting-and-shifting” workloads, they are increasingly using the cloud to devise and implement new, innovative projects and approaches. With its consumption-based model, the cloud allows businesses to experiment with new apps, see how they perform, and adjust as necessary, without huge up-front costs. As a result, an increasing number of French companies are leveraging our international and local partners to help them take advantage of our data management, smart analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence, and collaboration solutions.
This week marked our third Paris Cloud Summit. With more than 3,000 attendees, it was our largest summit in the country to date and has become one of the premier events on cloud technology in France. This increase in attendance, and the quality of the more than 60 speakers, points to growing momentum around our cloud business and demonstrates the appetite for innovation coming from French businesses. We enjoyed meeting with IT and business decision makers from across the country, and discussing how our latest technologies can help them move further and faster in their digital transformation journey.
Google Cloud partners: supporting French companies
Our partners play a critical role in working with French companies to implement their digital projects and define new, value-added projects. To accomplish these goals:
French customers share more on their digital transformation journey
In the past year, we’ve seen an increasing number of French companies turn to Google Cloud to help them transform digitally and grow and expand their businesses.
These new customers join the many French businesses that are already seeing the benefits of using Google Cloud.
The Paris Cloud Summit has demonstrated that French enterprises are ready to take their cloud adoption to the next level, providing them with a strong foundation for growth. We are committed to building out our relationships with customers and partners of every size and industry in France, and continue to grow our local team to support the momentum of our business.
