Google Cloud’s 2019 partner award winners

07 Apr 2020

Google Cloud has announced the winners of its 2019 partner awards.

The awards recognise those partners who have excelled in various aspects of the Google Cloud sales and services ecosystem both globally and by region.

While no A/NZ partners made the cut for the Asia Pacific region, there are several partners who operate in locally who claimed victory in one of the various categories who are listed below.

According to Canalys, Google Cloud was the third-largest public cloud vendor last year with a 5.8% market share.

“Google Cloud continued to make progress in penetrating new enterprise customers and developing its network of channel partners,” the Canalys report says.

“It has substantially grown its internal enterprise salesforce over the last year and brought partners under its field organisation for closer alignment.”

Last year, Google Cloud was the fastest-growing public cloud vendor, with 87.8% annual growth.

“Total expenditure in 2019 exceeded US$107 billion, up from US$78 billion in 2018 according to Canalys data,” the report says. 

“This highlights the unrelenting expansion of the IT industry, driven by digital transformation initiatives across all industries. Organisations are increasing their spend on compute, storage and other on-demand cloud-based services to analyse and interpret growing datasets and to meet internal DevOps needs as they build new applications and services.”
