Google advances to #6 as IBM drops to #7 in the Cloud Wars Top 10. Google Clouds’ new CEO Thomas Kurian - recruited from Oracle, 7 months into his role, is driving more sales of its Cloud services. Benefiting from its most recent $2 billion revenue quarter, Google jumped one place in the Cloud market position to #6. Spurred by a commitment to triple sales resources, and recruiting a long-time sales exec from SAP, Google’s innovative technical solutions now have the right engine for rapid growth. IBM - falling one place to #7 - has the right tech, customers, an innovation-focused culture, and excellent sales but it is unable to match the growth rate of its peers.
