SAN FRANCISCO -- Google Cloud Next -- Google's annual cloud conference sprawled over the Moscone Convention Center much in the way Google's cloud sprawls over multiple vertical industries.

Google used the conference to highlight its offerings in open source, artificial intelligence, Internet of Things and hybrid cloud. Google Cloud Next also had its weird side, with basketball tournaments, oversized gadgets of balls and tubes, and executives in whimsical footwear.

Here's some of what we saw. And to read about what we learned, follow the links to the articles below the photo.

 

This tube-and-ball mechanism demonstrates the risks of mixing public and confidential data. Josh Armour, whose name is well suited for his position as a Google program manager for security, operates the contraption.

Now entering its fifth year, the 2020 Vision Executive Summit is an exclusive meeting of global CSP executives focused on navigating the disruptive forces at work in telecom today. Join us in Lisbon on December 4-6 to meet with fellow experts as we define the future of next-gen communications and how to make it profitable.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
