Google Cloud Announces BigQuery Omni for Multi-cloud Analytics

A recent Gartner research survey on cloud adoption revealed that more than 80% of respondents using the public cloud were using more than one Cloud Service Provider (CSP)1. To address this multi-cloud reality, Google Cloud has announced BigQuery Omni, a multi-cloud analytics solution that enables customers to bring the power of BigQuery to data stored in Google Cloud, Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Azure (coming soon).
