Google appoints Nitin Bawankule as the head of India’s Cloud business

Earlier in the week in an ambitious effort of capturing a larger share of the growing demand for cloud business in India, Google revealed that it has appointed Nitin Bawankule as the country head to look after the operations of the blooming service in India.

Bawankule has a very reputable rapport with the search engine giant, as he has worked with Google for more than six years. Before his recent promotion, he was the head of sales for Google’s e-commerce, retail, classified and education business.

As per the announcement, Bawankule will directly report to Rick Harshman, managing director of the entire Asia Pacific Google Cloud.

The findings regarding the cloud business research in India will then be analyzed by Rick Harshman.

Bawankule was filled with optimism for this new job role, as he stated, “By 2020, the local cloud service market in India is all set to reach an astonishing figure of USD 4.10 billion. Business pioneers across multiple industries are progressively embracing cloud technology since they understand its capability to solve a number of  genuine problems and in turn, teams work better together, information proves helpful to settle on brilliant decisions and organizations manage to create new value to stay focused in a rapidly evolving economy.”

Also, quite recently, with a view of acquiring market shares with Amazon Web Services and Microsoft’s Azure, Google inaugurated a cloud location in ‘the city of dreams’, Mumbai.
