The Google Now feature on Android has been one trick up its sleeve that plenty of other manufacturers and developers are yet to be able to imitate. It is Android’s very own digital personal assistant which updates users of anything and everything they need when the time is right. Some useful updates found in the Google Now software includes things like weather forecasts and reports, traffic reports, stock market report, and plenty of other things. With the wealth of information that Google Now offers it is probably the best digital personal assistants out there paired with its exceptional voice command feature.
With so much popularity it only makes sense that Google takes the next step to expand the usage of Google Now. Google is next targeting the corporate crowd with the platform. So far though their Android platform has not been very popular with enterprises. It is fortunate for Google then that they are not doing this alone, instead HP is going to partner up with Google to bring the personal assistant application to the enterprises.
The idea with Google Now for enterprises is that employees of the company using the system will be able to pull up any required information through their Android device at any required time. To do that Google will have to mine and extract appropriate information from their clients to be presented to their employees. This though was not Google’s first time trying to collaborate with HP to enter the enterprising business. In fact they have been in talks for a year now but with little to no progress. With IBM and Apple looking to collaborate to compete in the same enterprise market space Google and HP would have to start making some moves and fast if Google wants any chance in beating Apple at all.
