re: Google's Amit Singh To Talk Enterprise Focus At E2
Google's achievements are outstanding and it's a brilliant cloud architecture company. But I remain skeptical it will plug into IT needs and move to meet them anytime soon. If IT can go to Google and use what it's got, fine. But don't expect Google to come to you and understand who you are or speak your language. It's not that kind of company. It doesn't have to be. On the other hand, it wishes it had more enterprise business. Charlie Babcock, editor at large, InformationWeek

re: Google's Amit Singh To Talk Enterprise Focus At E2
Google's brain trust is really good at coming up with new ideas and ways of thinking (Google Labs) outside the box. However, the culture there has never made it out of the perpetual "startup mode". This is why I don't think they really have the chops to do Enterprise right. That would mean not just equaling Microsoft, IBM, etc. but actually exceeding them in every way. Google is all about API's, languages, and third party efforts to bolt things on to an ever shifting core. That's not a sound strategy on which to build a long term platform to support Enterprise needs. And, they completely lack a competitive comprehensive management tool and application package to support a serious Enterprise endeavor.

The mainstay of Enterprise vendors actually listen to their customers and give them products and tools they can use. And they give them confidence that they will still be around a year, two, or more from now (Roadmap). Google has yet to humble themselves and do the same.
