In this episode, host David Linthicum and guest Lisa Noon, managing director at Deloitte Consulting LLP, discuss how cloud providers are using advances in business cloud technology to help solve some of the world’s most intractable problems such as water management and conservation, drug addiction, and disease research. They also talk about the role Google Cloud is playing in addressing these problems and how Google is leveraging innovations in its own security management to help make the cloud space more secure.
