The tech giant has strived to accelerate every organisation’s ability to transform through data-powered innovation with leading infrastructure, industry solutions, and expertise. Currently, many of India’s largest organisations trust Google Cloud, including Wipro, Sharechat, TVS ASL, ICICI Prudential, Nobroker.com, Cleartrip and many others. The company is also gearing up to launch its GCP region in Delhi this year, its second cloud region in India after technical infrastructure in Mumbai, established in 2017.
Additionally, Google Cloud has been designed, built, and operated with security at its core. “Government and enterprises want to work with us because we’re focused on the best service and technology — not because they don’t have choice or agility,” said Bikram.
“As we continue to invest in further evolving our infrastructure and expanding our reach into regulated industries — public sector organisations in India can now leverage the power of the cloud to accelerate digital services and to drive innovation,” concluded Bikram.
