Google beats estimates, for now

Google Subnet writes about Google’s Q1 revenue results.

“On the good side, Google beat analyst estimates to post an 8.9% increase in net income. On the bad side, it reported its first-ever sequential drop in quarterly sales since the company went public, Bloomberg reports.”

Google’s cloud gets ready for the enterprise

Dion Hinchcliffe writes where Google’s market opportunities would be if they were to enter the enterprise cloud computing space.

“Today’s increasingly broad interest in cloud computing may provide Google with an ideal opening. That is, if they can successfully deliver their unique strengths in the technical and economic underpinnings of networked computing in a form businesses find compelling for cutting costs, becoming more agile, and transitioning successfully to the next generation of computing. There is a clear opening for Google if it can offer businesses what they really need in the cloud before the leading enterprise software firms manage to arrive. It won’t be easy; the network is Google’s turf and it is clear that the platform wars have indeed returned.”
