As first reported by iTnews sister site CRN earlier this week, Google is now recruiting for a head of Google cloud A/NZ, a head of APAC SMB partner operations, as well as several cloud solution architects. Toward that end, they plan to launch a software development kit for programmers later this month. These technologies will make a difference in self-driving cars and healthcare, sure, but also Snapchat's filters and Google Photos' search capabilities.
