Case Study: Google Cloud Hero

About Google Cloud

Google’s mission is to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful. For over 20 years, Google has built technology that helps as many people as possible, regardless of who they are or where they are in the world. This includes Google Cloud, trusted by enterprises, startups, and everyone in between, for transformative cloud technologies and services.

Google Cloud Hero

Launch Consulting Levels-Up Organizations with Google Cloud Platform.

Engaging tech-savvy influencers, developers, and engineers with an immersive, experiential game to develop cloud expertise.

Sharpening the skills of cloud designers, solution architects, and engineers on new technologies and platforms is challenging. Google Cloud needed a dynamic way to capture the attention of both technical teams and IT decision-makers while informing them about the benefits and capabilities of Google Cloud Platform. Google Cloud also wanted to deliver true value to attendees by building useable skills in a memorable and transformative fashion.

The Human Approach:

Launch Consulting and Google Cloud knew they needed something more than just another webinar to train engineers about the power of Google Cloud Platform.
They had to do something different and unique to appeal to their audience in a very human, fun way while still building skills that could be implemented immediately. The result was Google Cloud Hero: a cloud and infrastructure game that challenged players to build and deploy services using Google Cloud Platform.
