Google Springboards new cloud services into Apps Suite

News: Services are aimed at enabling enterprises to stay more connected and collaborative.

By CBR Staff Writer

Technology giant Google has announced the launch of two new cloud services in a bid to boost its offerings for businesses.

The new products, which are being offered under its Google Apps suite, are aimed to address the growing information needs of enterprises across the world.

One of the new services, Google Springboard, is a cloud service that enables businesses to search all of their information in Google Apps including Gmail, Calendar, Docs, Drive, Contacts and other products quickly and easily.

Google Apps vice president of engineering Prabhakar Raghavan said: "Google is no stranger to helping enterprise customers sort through their corporate information and making it more useful for employees.

"As we continue to invest in applying technologies like machine intelligence to power our web search engine, we’re working on a new way to bring all of this power to the enterprise: Google Springboard."

Raghavan said: "Google Springboard helps you find the right information that you need at the moment that you need it."

The other service includes an update to its Google Sites which will allow employees in a firm to share information easily.

By using the service, businesses can create functional pages to aggregate and distribute content among their employees.

It will also support real-time collaboration among multiple editors of a company and offers easy access to all the content from Calendar, Docs, Drive, Maps and other products.

The new Sites also comes with themes and layouts designed to scale and flex to any screen size, making them useful when access them on a 30-inch monitor or smartphone.

Raghavan added: "Google Sites is one of the most popular products among our enterprise customers, and we’ve been working on an update that makes it even easier for employees to share information within their company."

Google has not disclosed the details about the launch of the new services but said it would be available through early adopter program for interested parties.

The company said that it has been previewing Google Springboard and the new Google Sites with a small set of customers.

In February, Google launched its TensorFlow Serving as open source to help developers in taking their machine learning models into production.
