Google is undertaking a massive restructuring process. Is Google aiming to consolidate it’s position as an industry giant and is it ready for the challenges ahead?
For most people Google is just a search engine. It all started 17 years ago as a research idea by two Phd students, with their first servers set up hastily in a garage. In all these years Google expanded, the company acquired other successful ventures such as Youtube, created analogous services such as Gmail and the Android operating system but also managed to diversify from virtual services into real world applications such as self driving cars, medicine and life extension technology.
