The 2022 ISG Provider Lens™ Google Cloud Partner Ecosystem Report for the US finds that Google is carving a niche for itself alongside AWS and Microsoft Azure as companies establish cloud infrastructure to modernize their IT capabilities.
“Enterprises with mature cloud strategies may eventually use all three cloud platforms, each to their own strengths,” said Bernie Hucker, partner for enterprise cloud transformation at ISG. “These early movers are setting the pace for the market, and they are driving sophisticated cloud estates. Most of these firms live in the US, which is currently the most advanced cloud market.”
ISG says that while many enterprises turn to AWS for large-scale computing and storage capacity and Azure for user-facing cloud services, companies are increasingly turning to their cloud environments to meet the needs of advanced applications. Includes GCP. One example is applications for autonomous vehicles, which require real-time, data-intensive decision-making with high stakes for speed and accuracy.
The report noted that enterprises moving to the cloud later than others are also adopting a multi-cloud approach to take advantage of the benefits of more than one platform. Two-cloud strategies are emerging as a trend among most companies. In all multi-cloud implementations, Google’s sophisticated APIs enable seamless integration with other cloud services.
GCP also stands out in terms of sustainability, which is an important consideration for companies in the US and other regions, the report said. Google has already achieved net-zero emissions through carbon offsets and has promised to be carbon-neutral by 2030.
