BENGALURU: Google, Intel, Dell and Citrix along with other technology companies have formed a pact to align standards and technologies to provide companies cloud-first computing solutions.

The Modern Computing Alliance is aimed to “address the biggest IT challenges” faced by companies today with integration from ‘silicon to cloud’, Google said in a blog post.

“We will invest in reducing friction and creating a much more seamless, user-friendly experience across the web and devices,” John Solomon VP, Chrome OS wrote in the blog.


With lives and businesses are increasingly moving to the cloud, there is an increasing need to look across the full technology stack, from silicon to the cloud, and this is an exciting opportunity to redefine technology systems and stacks as a whole, and how they work in the interconnected, internet-first world, it said

The founding members of the Modern Computing Alliance include some of the most innovative companies and products across the silicon-to-cloud stack: Box, Citrix, Dell, Imprivata, Intel, Okta, RingCentral, Slack, VMware, and Zoom will be joining Chrome browser, Chrome OS, and Google Workspace, said Google.

Analysts said in a computing environment which is more heterogeneous (all technology firms are in some way part of all organisation’s technology solution providers), different stacks could create issues for companies and organisations to move operations to cloud and such an alliance can help them do it with ease.

“When you move your workloads to the cloud, there could be varied standards for different stacks and they are not interoperable. So the alliance is looking to align standards and protocols of technologies for the organisations and companies, allowing them to migrate to the cloud with much more ease,” said Sanchit Vir Gogia, chief executive, Greyhound Research.

The alliance will invest in reducing friction and creating a much more seamless, user-friendly experience across the web and devices.

It will also enhance the productivity of an increasingly distributed workforce by providing telemetry insights across the stack, allowing employees to be more effective in their work while they are working remotely.
