There is the potential for 50 billion connected devices by 2020. Google Cloud Platform gives you the tools to scale connections, gather and make sense of data, and provide the reliable customer experiences that hardware devices require.
With the potential for so many devices, companies need a network infrastructure that can sustain potentially millions of concurrent connections across a global user base. Google's backbone network has thousands of miles of fiber optic cables, uses advanced software-defined networking and has edge caching services to deliver fast, consistent and scalable performance.
Many small devices are still capable of producing very large volumes of data. It is only through the insight of sufficiently powerful data analysis tools that these trickles of device data are turned into floods of valuable information. Google Cloud Platform is building a state-of-the-art suite of big data tools.

Google: DHL Supply Chain Growing Use of AR GlassesA picker with an RF scanner is constantly looking at the gun to get pick commands, hitting the confirm button and doing things in sequential fashion which is time consuming. Warehouse operations costs add up to 20% of the total logistics costs for DHL.Google: Google | Machine Learning Applied to Video Analysis AlgorithmsDue to the growth of video data on Internet, automatic video analysis has gained a lot of attention from academia as well as companies such as Facebook, Twitter and Google. Video analysis, unlike image analysis, requires incredibly high speeds of efficiency and increased confidence intervals to accuratley discern the images in the video. Creating these algorithms, these large tech companies have had to approach the problem from a creative and unintroduced algorithimic perspective.Google: AGCO is Increasing the Efficiency of its Manufacturing Programs Using GlassThe thorough inspection of a finished product is an essential step in the quality-control process. In the beginning, quality checklists were accessed using paper on clipboards. As technology improved, computers were utilized. But computers required additional time to access, and couldn’t be carried to the equipment being inspected. Tablets replaced computers, but were easily broken and expensive to replace.
