Alphabet Inc. is an American multi-national technology conglomerate, currently holding business headquarters in Mountain View, California. It was formed via a corporate reorganization of Google Inc. on October 2, 2021, and became an indirect owner of several of Google’s former subsidiaries and now its parent corporation. Alphabet Inc.’s core business is search engine, through its acquisition of Sidewise and Sun Microsystems. In recent years, it has made a number of strategic acquisitions and partnerships to strengthen its position in the emerging internet services market. It also released a new product, the Chrome browser, as well as operating system, namely Chrome OS.
Alphabet Inc. uses a web-based browser like Google Chrome for its Chrome browser and its suite of related services, such as Google Talk. Other notable Google subsidiary businesses under Alphabet Inc. are Waypoint, which provides business type collaboration tools, and Verifone, which provides connectivity and voice over IP (VOIP) solutions. Waypoint is based in London, while Verifone is based in Germany. Both of these platforms are used by large and medium sized enterprises, along with a number of small and start-up organizations. The major products of Alphabet Inc. are the following:
Google Fiber is an initiative launched by Alphabet Inc. in partnership with WPL – a German telecommunications company. Under the deal, WPL will be an indirect holder of approximately 15 billion shares of Alphabet. It means that Alphabet’s stake in WPL will be reduced when the holding company completes its acquisition of the former WPL. This deal was finalized in June this year. Alphabet Fiber will provide Internet users with faster Internet access by reducing latency, which is the time difference between data sent from servers to a user’s computer, and the time it takes for that data to reach the end user’s computer.
The Alphabet inc new product Grouper is a business type social networking and mapping platform. This will be followed by its acquisition of SocialDeck, which has a wide range of business related software applications. This acquisition is yet another example of how Google is all set to change the way people do business today. Grouper and SocialDeck have a number of key features that will help the new business type social network achieve its goal of connecting individuals and groups. This will be further strengthened with the addition of Algolia, a highly effective business intelligence platform from Grouper co. Algolia will enhance the way Algolia helps businesses understand their audience, brand, customers, competitors and other important information.
This brings us to the present and the end of the Alphabet Inc timeline. The last acquisition makes sense if you think about it. Jambool is part of the company’s future strategy, especially with the integration of its technology with its parent company’s own. Since the two companies work together on almost everything, such as managing their social networks, creating software for manufacturing and transportation, they are naturally compatible. While the acquisition is final, Alphabet will continue to invest in strong and promising start-ups, and that means the future of the Alphabet Inc platform will definitely be greater than before.
