Why is the big data and ML space growing so rapidly versus other cloud services? Would love to get everyone’s perspective. From my perspective, I think companies are realizing the true power of cloud lies in quickly leveraging big data and ML technologies (versus just staying on IaaS or other PaaS) since they can enable several use cases (depending on the industry) and they do not have to manage the infrastructure. The key seems to be in the speed in time to value. Thoughts? What use case are you leveraging for your industry?

Google Cloud has launched a new Mission Critical Services (MCS) offering for its platform, with the solution available for purchase by the vendor’s Premium Support customers. The move is the latest effort by the cloud vendor to bolster its support for enterprise customers, according to Google Cloud customer experience vice president John Jester.“Our customers told us they wanted to have more support as they continued to scale their businesses on our global infrastructure,” Jester said in a blog post. “So, we overhauled our Voice of the Customer Programs, expanded our Customer Advisory Boards and launched a brand-new, independently run Google Cloud customer community. “We also rolled out Event Management Services for retailers and other businesses dealing with peak traffic loads — and introduced new Compliance and Security Assessments and Assured Workloads to make it easier for customers in regulated industries to configure their cloud environments. “Today, we’re raising the bar even fu

There’s a lot of buzz around low code vs. no code in the cloud-computing world, and it’s possible to confuse these two. Both of these approaches are very user-friendly, intuitive, and operating as a boon for non-coders, beginners, and experts who wish to build their applications on the cloud. However, there’s a lot of ambiguity around what is low code and what is no code, or the overall usage of these terms, since they appear to overlap at certain places. Low-code vs. no-code app development platforms come with their unique advantages and disadvantages. It’s helpful to learn about the unique features, differences, similarities, and use cases to determine which one is best for you. Let’s read ahead and find out which software would provide the best solution to keep your team agile throughout the development process.Read the entire article here Thank you @Vijeta90 for writing it out for us, super helpful information!!
