Watch live keynote stream: Google Cloud Summit 2017 Sydney, 13 September

Claiming “the future of cloud is now”, Google is hosting its Cloud Summit 2017 in Sydney, and is offering live streams of the keynote presentation and demos as they happen – and hopes you’ll register. 

If you’re unable to make Google’s Cloud Summit 2017 in Sydney in person, then you’ve always got the opportunity to attend at least the keynote, virtually.

Google is encouraging early registrations for the live stream here.

The company promises its “line-up of Global Google Executives will inspire you on topics including":

  • Changing the way you work to drive productivity. The whole is greater than the sum of the parts. Enable an open culture that fosters innovation.
  • Getting into the business of delivering IT which differentiates you. Cost effectively, reliably, with performance and trust.
  • Investing in the technologies that enable intimacy, insight, innovation and engagement with your customers.

Google notes its keynote “will also be joined onstage by those who are embracing the cloud in new and innovative ways right here in Australia and New Zealand”, and that the best way to “gain these valuable insights” is to reserve your spot for the live stream “early".
