A top Indian government official says Google Cloud Platform (GCP) is “probably the most important” cloud platform for India’s government.
Google Cloud is a service which powers Google Apps for government websites, but also provides software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions for the public sector.
The Indian government has recently invested heavily in SaaS in an attempt to get it to scale up.
The company has been busy building infrastructure and has signed partnerships with a number of Indian banks.
It is also reportedly working on a cloud platform to support its own financial services businesses.
In the latest development, the government has announced it will deploy Google Cloud for government services in the country.
Google Cloud is an open-source project that allows developers to create and manage cloud applications on their own hardware.
The company has launched an open source version of the project called Google Cloud SDK.
