On April 5 Google Cloud announced that it has joined with a number of companies to form a new organization, the Data Cloud Alliance.

"The Data Cloud Alliance is committed to accelerating adoption of data analytics, artificial intelligence, and machine learning best practices across industries through common industry data models, open standards, and integrated processes," the company said in its announcement of the alliance.

"Data Cloud Alliance members will provide infrastructure, APIs, and integration support to ensure data portability and accessibility between multiple platforms and products across multiple environments -- on-premises, in public or private cloud, or in a hybrid model; and each Alliance member will collaborate on new, common industry data models, processes, and platform integrations to increase data portability and reduce complexity associated with data governance and global compliance," the statement continued.
