  • How Google Cloud is transforming Japanese businesses
    Thursday Jun 15, 2017

    This week, we welcomed 13,000 executives, developers, IT managers and partners to our largest Asia-Pacific Cloud event, Google Cloud Next Tokyo. During this event, we celebrated the many ways that Japanese companies such as Kewpie, Sony (and even cucumber farmers) have transformed and scaled their businesses using Google Cloud. 

    Since the launch of the Google Cloud Tokyo region last November, roughly 40 percent of Google Compute Engine core hour usage in Tokyo is from customers new to Google Cloud Platform (GCP). The number of new customers using Compute Engine has increased by an average of 21 percent monthly over the last three months, and the total number of paid customers in Japan has increased by 70 percent over the last year.

    By supplying compliance statements and documents for FISC — an important Japanese compliance standard — for both GCP and G Suite, we’re making it easier to do business with Google Cloud in Japan.

    Here are a few of the exciting announcements that came out of Next Tokyo:

    Retailers embracing enterprise innovation  

    One of the biggest retailers in Japan, FamilyMart, will work with Google’s Professional Services Organization to transform the way it works, reform its store operations, and build a retail model for the next generation. FamilyMart is using G Suite to facilitate a collaborative culture and transform its business to embrace an ever-changing landscape. Furthermore, it plans to use big data analysis and machine learning to develop new ways of managing store operations. The project, — dubbed “Famima 10x” — kicks off by introducing G Suite to facilitate a more flexible work style and encourage a more collaborative, innovative culture. 

    Modernizing food production with cloud computing, data analytics and machine learning

    Kewpie, a major food manufacturer in Japan famous for their mayonnaise, takes high standards of food production seriously. For its baby food, it used to depend on human eyes to evaluate 4 - 5 tons of food materials daily, per factory, to root out bad potato cubes — a labor-intensive task that required intense focus on the production line. But over the course of six months, Kewpie has tested Cloud Machine Learning Engine and TensorFlow to help identify the bad cubes. The results of the tests were so successful that Kewpie adopted the technology.

    Empowering employees to conduct effective data analysis

    Sony Network Communications Inc. is a division of Sony Group that develops and operates cloud services and applications for Sony group companies. It converted from Hive/Hadoop to BigQuery and established a data analysis platform based on BigQuery, called Private Data Management Platform. This not only reduces data preparation and maintenance costs, but also allows a wide range of employees — from data scientists to those who are only familiar with SQL — to conduct effective data analysis, which in turn made its data-driven business more productive than before.

    Collaborating with partners

    During Next Tokyo, we announced five new Japanese partners that will help Google Cloud better serve customers.

    • NTT Communications Corporation is a respected Japanese cloud solution provider and new Google Cloud partner that helps enterprises worldwide optimize their information and communications technology environments. GCP will connect with NTT Communications’ Enterprise Cloud, and NTT Communications plans to develop new services utilizing Google Cloud’s big data analysis and machine intelligence solutions. NTT Communications will use both G Suite and GCP to run its own business and will use its experiences to help both Japanese and international enterprises.

    • KDDI is already a key partner for G Suite and Chrome devices and will offer GCP to the Japanese market this summer, in addition to an expanded networking partnership.

    • Softbank has been a G Suite partner since 2011 and will expand the collaboration with Google Cloud to include solutions utilizing GCP in its offerings. As part of the collaboration, Softbank plans to link GCP with its own “White Cloud” service in addition to promoting next-generation workplaces with G Suite.

    • SORACOM, which uses cellular and LoRaWAN networks to provide connectivity for IoT devices, announced two new integrations with GCP. SORACOM Beam, its data transfer support service, now supports Google Cloud IoT Core, and SORACOM Funnel, its cloud resource adapter service, enables constrained devices to send messages to Google Cloud Pub/Sub. This means that a small, battery-powered sensor can keep sending data to GCP by LoRaWAN for months, for example.

    Create Cloud Spanner instances in Tokyo

    Cloud Spanner is the world’s first horizontally-scalable and strongly-consistent relational database service. It became generally available in May, delivering long-term value for our customers with mission-critical applications in the cloud, including customer authentication systems, business-transaction and inventory-management systems, and high-volume media systems that require low latency and high throughput. Starting today, customers can store data and create Spanner instances directly in our Tokyo region.

    Jamboard coming to Japan in 2018

    At Next Tokyo, businesses discussed how they can use technology to improve productivity, and make it easier for employees to work together. Jamboard, a digital whiteboard designed specifically for the cloud, allows employees to sketch their ideas whiteboard-style on a brilliant 4k display, and drop images, add notes and pull things directly from the web while they collaborate with team members from anywhere. This week, we announced that Jamboard will be generally available in Japan in 2018.

    Why Japanese companies are choosing Google Cloud

    For Kewpie, Sony and FamilyMart, Google’s track record building secure infrastructure all over the world was an important consideration for their move to Google Cloud. From energy-efficient data centers to custom servers to custom networking gear to a software-defined global backbone to specialized ASICs for machine learning, Google has been living cloud at scale for more than 15 years—and we bring all of it to bear in Google Cloud.

    We hope to see many of you as we go on the road to meet with customers and partners, and encourage you to learn more about upcoming Google Cloud events.

  • Boston to Baghdad: The Man Behind New England's Shootout for Soldiers Event
    By msilva - Friday Jun 23, 2017

    M

    ike Sullivan and lacrosse have long been in a love affair of sorts.

    It began in 1980s in Bardonia, N.Y., when Sullivan started playing in middle school. Eventually he made it to West Point and played two years of Division I lacrosse at Army. “Sully,” as he’s affectionately known, even played club lacrosse while stationed at Fort Bragg in North Carolina, and while he was overseas in Kaiserslautern, Germany. His family also attends nearly every Boston Cannons home game. He serves on the board of the Eastern Massachusetts Chapter of US Lacrosse.

    Now 45 and a lieutenant colonel, Sullivan has taken his passion to another realm: organizing Boston’s Shootout For Soldiers event, which will commence its third rendition Friday at 7 p.m. Eastern at UMass Lowell.

    “While in Boston, I got an incredible feel for how lacrosse was growing, but also the patriotism and pride I saw in the community,” said Sullivan, who is wrapping up his doctorate at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts. “This was only a year after the Boston Marathon bombing, and things that caught my eye were everything from American flags to how much they seemed to respect the service members.”

    So Sullivan reached out to Tyler Steinhardt, the executive director of Shootout for Soldiers, and they ironed out the details of expanding to Beantown. The event, which features 24 hours of lacrosse and raises money to support American veterans, started in 2015 with 600 players and 3,200 attendees raising $26,170.

    That first year, Sullivan said there were plenty of hurdles, like having enough teams to play and working with Harvard, the host site. Last year, Shootout for Soldiers Boston expanded to the complex at UMass Lowell and raised $56,586. Forty-one teams registered for this year’s event with hopes of raising $75,000 for four national and two local military charities.

    Body Section One: 

    Sullivan said the point of Shootout for Soldiers Boston isn’t the money raised, but rather bringing the lacrosse community together and offering educational resources to veterans of the armed services. It helps, too, he said, that some “pretty cool” stories come out of the day.

    “We start with the veterans game, and last year we had three Vietnam vets, one guy who brought his old bucket helmet and wooden stick with him,” Sullivan said. “It looked like he was stepping out of a history book. The goalie on my team lost his leg in Afghanistan in 2012, so he's out there playing with a prosthetic limb.”

    Stories aside, partners and fellow organizers say that Sullivan truly is the lifeblood of Shootout for Soldiers Boston.

    It’s a sentiment echoed by Kevin Barney, the vice president and general manager of the Cannons. For this year’s event, the Cannons are expected to send Josh Hawkins and several other players to guest coach and interact with fans.

    “The event itself is something the Cannons saw as a great way for us to support our military veterans on a national and local level,” Barney said. “It’s a unique event and great opportunity and something we’re happy to get behind. Then when Mike Sullivan took over, it made it easier. A great guy who’s supportive of us and we obviously wanted to return that and support something he’s very passionate about.”

    Steinhardt went a step further, saying Sullivan has grabbed the event by the horns and “just run with it” the last few years. 

    “If you look at a Venn diagram of people who love lacrosse and work in the military, Sully fits exactly in the middle,” Steinhardt said. “He’s a guy who cares deeply about both. It comes from a place of genuine care and authenticity that really drives the event. It’s what fueled Boston to grow so rapidly.”

    Body Section Two: 

    While praise for Sullivan and Shootout for Soldiers Boston go hand in hand, the organization also hosts events on a national scale. In all, 11 cities ranging from Dana Point, Calif. to Aurora, Colo., to Baltimore hold similar days. A recent event in Baltimore raised a Shootout for Soldiers-record $201,738.

    And if Sullivan’s plans unfold, their portfolio will expand even further.

    On July 2, he’s shipping out to Baghdad, Iraq for a yearlong deployment. There’s a group of about 20 guys at the American embassy who play lacrosse on a turf field, Sullivan said, but often lack enough equipment. Thus, Sullivan, who works with Operation Baggataway, a charity that donates used lacrosse gear to service members, plans to bring sticks and more.

    With that, he hopes to launch a Shootout for Soldiers Baghdad.

    “There’s no way we can play for 24 hours, but even if we just do two or three hours and maybe do a live stream of what we’re doing and tell people about where the different players are from and their jobs in Iraq are, I think it’d be a neat opportunity,” Sullivan said. “It’d educate people about why we’re still there and how lacrosse weaves into everything we do. Once I get on the ground, I'm going to try and make it happen.”

    Sullivan’s hope for expansion does not stop there, though. 

    Upon returning from his deployment, the military will send him and his family to a currently unknown city, where he plans on starting another Shootout for Soldiers event. And even while stationed in Baghdad, Sullivan plans on helping organize the Boston event in 2018, much to his wife’s chagrin.

    He’ll have plenty of help, though, mainly Rachael Rennie, who will take over and he dubbed his “partner in crime.” 

    “Mike’s been a huge all-around life mentor,” Rennie said. “I’m going to miss him like crazy and it’ll be sad to see him go, but I’m looking forward to filling his shoes. I know what we need to do, I just have to set aside the time. It’ll be a struggle for sure, but I’m excited for it.”

    Body Section Three: 

    All things considered, Shootout for Soldiers Boston has grown by leaps and bounds, with Sullivan at the center of it all.

    It’s led to guys like Joe Cardona, the long snapper for the New England Patriots, and Margo McAuley, a broadcaster on Lacrosse Sports Network, coming out. This year’s event will even feature a Tufts alumni team, with former head coach Mike Daly and current head coach Casey D'Annolfo expected to show.

    But, at the end of the day, Sullivan has a simple message regarding what Shootout for Soldiers Boston is all about.

    “I tell everyone I get the opportunity to tell, the service members that deploy, we have the easier job, as much as people don’t believe me,” Sullivan said. “It’s the spouses, the husbands, the wives, the same-sex partners that stay back who I think have the much tougher job. This day really lets us all come together and experience what that’s all about.”
