Google Puts Its Cloud Businesses Under One Roof
Google today made an organizational change with respect to its cloud-based products. Moving forward, Google for Work, Cloud Platform, and Google Apps will all fall under the purview of Diane Greene where they can be managed together. "This new business will bring together product, engineering, marketing and sales and allow us to operate in a much more integrated, coordinated fashion," said Google CEO Sundar Pichai in a blog post.

Greene is the founder of bebop and will join Google once the acquisition closes. Google believes the new structure will help its cloud businesses run more efficiently.
