Getting Google-y On Valley View

Google I/O is the setting for this episode of Valley View. From a new public cloud offering to streaming media to Google Glass, there's plenty to talk about.

Valley View, our live monthly Web TV show, aired smack dab in the middle of Google I/O--the annual developers' gathering Google puts together in San Francisco. We mixed some content from the conference with a few big enterprise topics—namely, mobile device management and big data--for this episode. You can watch the full show in the video player below.

Google made plenty of noise, as it always does--a new public cloud offering (Google Compute Engine), a new tablet (the Nexus 7), a new version of Android (Jelly Bean), a streaming media device called Nexus Q, and some spectacular demonstrations using Google Glass (augmented reality glasses that Google is prototyping). We talked about the main highlights and showed off a couple of these offerings.

We also ran an interview with Dr. Jim Goodnight, the co-founder and CEO of SAS, one of the industry leaders in data analytics. We got a hands-on demonstration of Zenprise, which helps the enterprise manage mobile devices (security, policy setting and enforcement, compliance, and so on) across platforms.

Finally, we hosted two Googlers (as they like to be called): A partner at Google Ventures, which helps fund startups; and the data lead for Google Arts Project, an online collection of art curated from around the world--and we got a demonstration of how "visitors" to Google Arts Project could have an immersive but collaborative experience around art.
