In 2015, Google Ince. became Alphabet Inc. and Google became a subsidiary of Alphabet. This rebirth of Google as a holding company was an acknowledgement of its expansion well beyond its original business of internet search.
However, the transformation of Google into Alphabet did little to clarify the corporate strategy of the company. Google’s expansion beyond search had taken it into a bewildering variety of technology-based businesses. Although most of these related to web-based information, computer software and advertising, others had little relationship to Google’s mission to “organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful.” These included operating systems such as Android and Chrome, home security and control systems (Nest), hardware devices such as smartphones and tablets, software for autonomous cars (Waymo) and various life sciences projects.
