Around the world, organizations across multiple industries are digitally transforming their businesses. The staggering emergence of new technologies and an increasing urgency to adopt more sustainable methods of living are reshaping our world faster than ever before.

Knowing how to define and measure employee core competencies is vital to improving organizational efficiency. Therefore, companies must invest in professional competency development. Now that, Knowit has already a proven history of existing programs on AWS and Azure, we’re leveraging our focus on new areas.

The importance of competency development

The driving force behind these shifts will be people with the skills required to implement and maintain large-scale cloud deployments.

Google Cloud success factors

Even though Google Cloud is well and truly the underdog, with a comparatively small share in comparison to AWS and Azure, it has a lot of advantages one should take into consideration when choosing a hosting provider.

Google is the only cloud provider that has a full-scale physical presence in Finland. Those who need one-digit latency or have regulatory and security compliance needs for data processing can select the Hamina region. In addition to that, all GCP regions are connected to Google Cloud’s global network providing low latency and security around the globe.

Google's vision is to be a unified data and AI solution provider for the end-to-end data science experience. Forrester Research has named Google Cloud a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: AI Infrastructure, Q4 2021 report. The report evaluated dimensions of AI architecture, training, inference and management against a set of pre-defined criteria. That recognition gives customers the confidence they need to make important platform choices that will have a lasting business impact.gif-ikon-bulbSustainability has been one of the key drivers at Google from the beginning. It is one of the largest corporate buyers of renewable energy by 40 per cent through power purchase agreements with utilities around the world. It also uses machine learning to continuously optimize its energy efficiency. As a result, every workload running on Google Cloud has zero net carbon emissions.
