Each month, C2C shares the latest news from the team and the best highlights from all of you here in the community. Read on for the most essential C2C updates from January 2023.
We stayed inside this month as the C2C team emerged from a short, wintery hibernation. But as many of us have learned over the past few years, “inside” doesn't mean “inactive.” Our virtual connections are here to stay—January was full of them, and we have some of our partners to thank for that!
Partners Coming Together
Four of our partners—all fast-growing startups with a goal of enabling companies with data-driven software options—took turns sharing their success stories using Google Cloud’s BigQuery. Here’s what they shared:
- Tinyclues discussed reliance on implicit versus explicit signals as a measure for predicting consumer behavior, using AirFrance’s first-party data as an example.
- Aible’s case study with Overstock.com demonstrated how AI-first approaches accelerate time-to-value.
- Connected-Stories and its latest platform launch, NEXT, rely on BigQuery to deliver personalized ads and creative intelligence.
- Snorkel AI focused on high-quality training of datasets and ML models for document intelligence, conversational analytics, and more.
The full recording from their session is available to watch now.
That's the name of NetApp's proprietary solution for data storage on Google Cloud. Brian Wink, Director of Google Cloud Architects at NetApp, gave us some background on this tool ahead of the Google Cloud partner joining C2C at 2Gather events in Sunnyvale, New York City, Zurich, and Paris.
