Schmidt: Google could move into enterprise analytics, transportation

At a Gartner event , Eric Schmidt (GOOG -1.1%) suggested the A.I. tech behind Google Now, thus far focused on pushing consumer-centric mobile content, could be adapted for enterprise analytics applications.

Demand for big data/analytics software and services has been taking off. Google hasn't played much of a role in the market thus far, though it has seen a bit of success selling search appliances to enterprises.

Schmidt also: 1) Asserted Google's Compute Engine cloud infrastructure platform outperforms Amazon Web Services ; some benchmarks seem to back up Schmidt's claim. 2) Raised eyebrows by declaring Android "more secure than the iPhone." 3) Hinted Google, which is investing in self-driving tech and just founded an anti-aging company, might turn its sights on transportation services. "Transportation is a mess ... It needs to be solved."

    A few years when Google was moving into the energy sector and which it has done, gone into ultrafast broadband.


    Google seemed to be moving into area that BT (former British Telecom) has successfully moved into.
