MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwired - September 30, 2016) - Agosto Inc., a tier 1 premier Google Cloud partner has helped 280+ companies "Go Google" -- at state agencies, Groupon, and just about every type of business in between. So as Alphabet Inc.'s largest subsidiary embarks on a mission to rebrand its widely-adopted Google Apps for Work suite to the new name "G Suite" and Google for Work to "Google Cloud", Agosto stands poised to help even more companies leverage the public cloud.
Agosto President Aric Bandy attended Google's Horizon conference, an invitation-only event, yesterday in San Francisco. "Listening to Diane Greene talk about the original promise of the Cloud, and how we are delivering that promise at an enterprise level, really resonated with me," said Bandy. "The launch of Google Cloud and G Suite is more than a name change. After ten months of acquisitions and partnerships, Google has heavily invested in product updates and infrastructure, and that's how we can make digital transformation a reality for our customers."
Google Cloud is the enterprise-focused division that offers the public cloud infrastructure -- Google Cloud Platform -- as well as G Suite, enterprise versions of Android and Chrome OS, and application programming interfaces (APIs) for machine learning and enterprise mapping services.
G Suite encompasses the ecosystem of apps Google has built and continues to improve upon, as well as the deeper integration with machine learning and artificial intelligence, which leads to improved work efficiencies.
Team Drive shifts the focus from individual users to teams, streamlining productivity facilitating continuity of progress for projects even as roles change. Agosto has been previewing Team Drives with a small set of customers, and will begin to extend this capability to more customers through an Early Adopter Program.
Agosto compiled a comprehensive list of Google's new brands to explain what has changed and what will stay the same, which can be seen here.
