Eric Schmidt looks at the future of Google

What will the future of Google be? Will they maintain their current growth rates? Google’s CEO Eric Schmidt took some time to ponder these questions while at a press event recently in Paris.

Google has been growing by leaps and bounds ever since it started, with phenomenal growth rates over the past few years, what can they do to maintain this growth? Schmidt says that an important strategy Google is undertaking will be to concentrate on providing applications and other services to business consumers. Small business and universities will become a significant part of the plan for Google since they both utilize the search giants sales and infrastructure. This is extremely evident in the past few years since Google has introduced business targeted hardware and applications, the Google Search appliance, Google Mini and the Google Apps Premier Edition.

Even as Schmidt claims they are not in a competition with Microsoft, they are poised to take control of the online office application market.
