Google is the biggest data business in the world

and has just turned 20 years old!

Google has gone from zero to nearly a trillion in 20 years—in pages and value.

The tech giant, which was incorporated September 4, 1998, celebrates its 20th anniversary Tuesday. The company has a market capitalization of more than $850 billion, says it has indexed hundreds of billions of pages and is aware of over 100 trillion.

Along the way, it’s changed its name (twice!), transformed online search and digital advertising, and served as a fierce competitor in the smartphone market, for inexpensive laptops, and in self-driving cars.

So what next for the biggest data company in the world? Global Futurist Chris Riddell joins Sunrise on 7 to talk about this enormous milestone for Silicon Valley.
