The team works hand-in-hand with customers to address complex business challenges and advise companies as they transform their business with technology.
By working closely with customers, OCTO also is able to spot and advise Google Cloud and Alphabet on emerging trends across industries, geographies and components of the cloud stack that our platforms and products must address.
“As Google Cloud builds its presence in Africa, I am honoured to join this growing team to better support local businesses,” said Jack Ngare.
