Javier Soltero, Google’s conduct of Workspace, will join us during TC Sessions: SaaS

When it comes to large SaaS products, few are bigger than Google Workspace (formerly famous as GSuite). So it’s maybe no warn that one of a initial people we contacted to pronounce during a SaaS discussion on Oct 27 was Google’s Javier Soltero.

Today, Puerto Rico-born Soltero is Google’s VP and GM in assign of Workspace, that has good over 2 billion users. Today, it consists of products like Gmail and Google Calendar, Docs, Sheets, Slide Meet, Chat and Drive. Currently, Workspace is going by what might be one of a many critical durations of change, too, with endless new partnership facilities and, for a initial time, a paid particular plan. All of this, of course, is function opposite a backdrop of a pandemic, that done remote partnership collection and video discuss services like Meet some-more critical than ever.

All of that would be adequate to make Soltero a good review partner for a SaaS event, yet his credentials goes most serve than that. He indeed started his career as a program operative during Netscape in a late 90s and after a few other engineering positions, co-founded launched his initial startup, a monitoring use Hyperic, in 2004. Hyperic afterwards joined with SpringSource, that was acquired by VMware, alighting Soletro in a position as VMware’s CTO for a SaaS and Application Services.

It’s expected his subsequent startup, a mobile-centric email startup Acompli, though, that we remember. Founded in mid-2013, Microsoft fast acquired Acompli in late 2014 and afterwards radically incited into Outlook Mobile. At Microsoft, Soltero rose by a ranks to turn a corporate VP for a Office organisation and Cortana, before decamping to Google in 2019. Since then, he’s turn a open face of GSuite/Workspace and we’ll use a time with him to speak about a joys and hurdles of handling a large SaaS product, yet also about what he schooled from building products from a belligerent up.
