Google hosts 400 CIOs, updates Docs

Juan Carlos Perez | April 13, 2010
At its Atmosphere cloud computing event, Google will make a push for using Apps in the enterprise

As such, Docs offers enterprises an office suite that makes it easier for employees to collaborate, instead of having to resort to e-mailing back and forth files that are stored in their PCs, he said. "Docs provides a better alternative," Schadler said.

A big concern about enterprises remains moving their data out of their on-premise servers and entrusting it to cloud vendors, such as Google, Wettemann said.

Google will likely address that thorny topic on Monday at its Atmosphere cloud computing conference, to which it has invited about 400 CIOs.

In addition to announcing the Docs enhancements at the event, Google will trot out some high-ranking officials to address the CIOs, including Bradley Horowitz, enterprise vice president of product management, Mario Queiroz, Android vice president of product management, Marissa Mayer, vice president of Search Products & User Experience, and Dave Girouard, president of Google Enterprise.

Also speaking will be Senior Vice President of Engineering and Research Alan Eustace, Senior Vice President of Engineering Jeff Huber and Vint Cerf, chief Internet evangelist. In addition to a CIO panel, Salesforce.com Chairman and CEO Marc Benioff and Amazon.com CTO Werner Vogels will also take the stage.

It is the second time Google is holding Atmosphere, but the first time in the U.S. The first edition was held in London last year.
