Atmosphere 2016: Spotlight on technologies for Smart, Modern and Secure businesses

Today we hosted over 2,000 business leaders, in person and over livestream, for the India leg of Atmosphere 2016 in Mumbai. As our first time bringing this global enterprise event to India, it was an amazing day discussing everything from digital transformation to machine learning and enterprise security with companies of all sizes and from across sectors.

At the event, senior leaders from Flipkart, Hero MotoCorp, PwC and Mahindra’s startup arm, SmartShift, spoke about their adoption of Google Apps for Work and Cloud Platform, which are enabling their teams to be more connected, collaborative and competitive.

Through our enterprise technologies, we provide a seamless experience from desktop to mobile - accommodating the current needs of a digital, connected and integrated workforce while continuing to build for future shifts that will make companies smarter, more efficient and empowered to identify opportunities, service customers and manage risks. We are enthused that according to Trends, over 70% of sites with a .IN domain are using Google’s enterprise technologies, making Google Apps a popular IT choice for Indian businesses.

For the first time in India we spoke about how our Cloud Platform takes advantage of Google’s deep networking and machine learning expertise to provide services for application development, data analysis and computing. Google Cloud customers including Wipro and SmartShift, are hosting applications on our platform.

Among the other technologies we demonstrated an immersive experience focused on the much needed water taxi for Mumbai. The demo included several cloud based features including security features like data loss protection and information rights management, interactive live Google docs, created QR codes and got real time feedback from the audience. One of the most popular demos was a robot powered by the Google Cloud Platform Vision API, that correctly identified a human smile and everyday objects. It is exciting to see the opportunities for this technology and the various ways in which it could be applied to myriad industries including manufacturing and retail.

Leaders from various sectors and industries shared their experience of using technology to improve efficiency, modernize decision-making and keep their organisation’s data secure. This was a great opportunity to learn from our customers and IT leaders. We look forward to supporting even more Indian businesses on their digital journey.
