Week 9 of Google Cloud Next ‘20: OnAir is within the books—and what every week it was! From Google Cloud GM/VP Amit Zavery’s keynote to product bulletins to buyer demos to Google SVP Urs Hölzle presentation and Q&A, we explored a number of methods enterprises are leveraging APIs and no-code utility growth to speed up their digital transformations. There was so much to soak up, so let’s have a look again.
Key bulletins from the week
We launched our investment in the category of business application platform, which makes it simpler for enterprises to create and lengthen functions, construct and automate enterprise processes, and join and modernize legacy functions.
Leveraging not solely Apigee API administration and AppSheet no-code growth but additionally Google Cloud’s machine studying capabilities, our enterprise utility platform each helps conventional IT to do extra with APIs and empowers line-of-business staff to create apps and automation with out having to put in writing code. All of this after all comes with sturdy governance instruments and safety protections. We will’t wait to see what the enterprise utility platform lets you construct.
We additionally introduced the beta launch of API Gateway, a fully-managed service that lets builders construct, safe, and monitor APIs for Google Cloud workloads and serverless backends. Serverless APIs are rising in popularity, and this answer will assist builders to start sharing their APIs with collaborators with out having to fret about infrastructure concerns.
AppSheet, our no-code answer, additionally unveiled two new capabilities to allow non-technical staff to create much more highly effective apps and enterprise course of optimizations, all in the identical unified platform. Apigee datasource for AppSheet lets AppSheet customers harness Apigee APIs. This not solely opens up virtually infinite new knowledge sources for no-code apps however also needs to assist enterprises tackle backlogs for line-of-business apps. AppSheet Automation provides a pure language interface and contextual suggestions that allow customers automate enterprise processes, capabilities that can assist enterprises scale back time-consuming and error-prone guide processes.
We’re excited for these new merchandise to assist our prospects, and as Amit famous throughout his keynote, we’ve far more within the works. Over the following 12 months, we’ll be doubling down on supporting multi-cloud and hybrid deployment fashions and additional integrating ML capabilities. Enhancements to help continually-evolving DevOps wants are deliberate, corresponding to elevated help for serverless workloads, and safety and compliance enhancements are after all within the works too. Above all, we’ll be centered on serving to prospects to extra simply construct functions, handle digital belongings, drive effectivity, and extract insights from knowledge.
Demos to speed up digital transformation
A lot of week 9 centered on making utility growth simpler and sooner, each for conventional builders and the brand new breed of no-code citizen builders—and there’s nothing like a demo to assist visualize what we imply by “easier and faster.”
Greatest practices from Google Cloud prospects
One of the helpful elements of any convention is listening to greatest practices from peer corporations who’ve battle-tested merchandise and methods within the discipline. Week 9 featured a variety of Google Cloud prospects who shared a wealth of data for navigating digital transformation, together with:
HP Inc. discussed their give attention to developer experiences, which included the creation of a definitive catalog of APIs for each inner and exterior developer communities
T-Cell joined us for 2 periods: in one, they explored how APIs could be infused with AI and ML applied sciences and carried out a demo to overview API administration greatest practices; and within the other, they defined how API administration and a service mesh work collectively in fashionable cloud-native architectures
Hole revealed the way it achieved exponential development in API adoption by means of a self-service, low-friction developer portal
Australian Power Market Operator (AEMO) detailed their API-driven open knowledge hub for the vitality house
Pizza Hut shared the way it has used APIs to modernize its platform
BHI discussed the way it used AppSheet and different Google Cloud merchandise to fully overhaul its document-sharing and collaboration infrastructure, and to empower line-of-business staff to construct no-code apps for duties like development website inspections
Week 9 concludes Google Cloud Subsequent ‘20: OnAir. We’ve lined loads of floor, from infrastructure, safety, and databases to machine studying, collaboration, and APIs—and we are able to’t wait to see how you set all of it into follow. And for our prospects in Europe, Center East, and Africa, we’re kicking off Google Cloud Next OnAir EMEA on Sep 29 with greater than 30 new periods over 5 weeks specifically tailor-made to the area—learn more on our website.
Thanks to everybody who joined us, each this week and over the past two months. And should you missed any periods, or simply cannot get sufficient and wish to assessment, make sure you try the Subsequent OnAir sessions page, the place you’ll be able to entry all of the recordings.
