Google is making yet another change in its business, as it plans to combine all of its cloud-based divisions under one organization. The new business, which has yet to be named, will include divisions such as Google for Work, Cloud Platform, and Google Apps.
Google CEO Sundar Pichai said the company was making this move to make preparations for the future, where cloud-based data will become more important for companies worldwide:
This new business will bring together product, engineering, marketing and sales and allow us to operate in a much more integrated, coordinated fashion.
The new business will be lead by former co-founder and CEO of VMWare Diane Greene, who has already served on Google's board of directors for the past three years. As part of her new duties, Google has also acquired a company called bebop that Greene also founded:
bebop is a new development platform that makes it easy to build and maintain enterprise applications. We think this will help many more businesses find great applications, and reap the benefits of cloud computing. bebop and its stellar team will help us provide integrated cloud products at every level: end-user platforms like Android and Chromebooks, infrastructure and services in Google Cloud Platform, developer frameworks for mobile and enterprise users, and end-user applications like Gmail and Docs.
