Google Inc. to start selling its software outsourcing software to Indian customers: report
Google Inc., the parent company of the online search company, is set to begin selling its technology to Indian users soon, with the company saying it plans to sell software that allows companies to quickly deploy their software.
Google said in a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission that it is preparing a public filing on the sale of its services to Indian clients.
The company said it plans for the software to be available in India within the next six months, but it didn’t specify the exact date.
“We have been exploring ways to help our Indian clients achieve the goals of cloud computing and artificial intelligence,” a Google spokeswoman said in an emailed statement.
“While we believe we can deliver the cloud computing capabilities that our customers expect from us, we are committed to building a more reliable, efficient, and secure cloud environment.”
In August, Google announced plans to buy the software firm Cloudera for $18 billion.
Google said at the time that it planned to use the Clougera software to help manage its data centers in the United States.
The company said the software will be available for use in India from the end of 2017.
The software will allow companies to rapidly deploy applications, with no human interaction.
Google also announced that it plans in September to launch an artificial intelligence-powered cloud computing service in India, with its customers being able to use it on their own computers or smartphones.
Google’s $3.4 billion acquisition of cloud software company Salesforce in October 2014 raised questions about whether Google would be able to keep up with the pace of software growth in India.
Salesforce said at that time that the company is exploring the possibility of selling software to India to help it improve its data center management.
