At Google Next last week, the company announced capabilities ranging from machine learning to identity and access management, as well as more big data options. Google is pushing forward with new cloud capabilities, including several for the enterprise.

See, for example, its hiring of “enterprise-knowledgeable” executives. In addition, it featured the likes of Disney, Domino’s, Spotify, Macy’s, Heineken, and Best Buy among its biggest clients. Those are all great names.
