Google Cloud’s enterprise momentum enticed former SAP chief product officer Abdul Razack to join the No. 3 cloud computing provider’s solutions engineering team.

“I spent 15 wonderful years at SAP, but decided it was time for a new challenge,” Razack said. “Google Cloud has significant momentum as customers across all industries are accelerating their digital transformations.”

Google Cloud yesterday announced it has hired Razack to fill its newly created position of vice president of technology solutions for its solutions engineering team. Razack will be responsible for defining Google Cloud’s solution strategy across the company’s seven solution “pillars,” which include infrastructure and application modernization, smart data analytics, and artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). He’ll also help scale the use of the solutions through sellers and customer engineers to assist customers that are digitally transforming their businesses using Google Cloud.

Under CEO Thomas Kurian, Google Cloud is focused on a hybrid and multi-cloud strategy with its Anthos platform, which debuted in April 2019, and industry-specific solutions for customers in six target markets: financial services, health care, manufacturing and industrial, the public sector, retail, and media, telecommunications and entertainment.

“I’m focused on working with these customers to help them solve their toughest business challenges and explore new opportunities using Google’s technologies in data management, AI/ML, security, collaboration and infrastructure,” Razack said.
