Google house Ancoris swallows Google house Appogee

Premier Enterprise bags Cloud Platform Service Partner

Integrator Ancoris has hoovered up fellow Google specialist Appogee for an undisclosed sum to slurp its cloud app development skills.

Former Microsoft business partner Ancoris placed its chips behind the ads giant chocolate factory a couple of years back and was the first accredited Premier Enterprise Partner in the UK.

Google has opened up its App Engine and BigQuery platform to developers and this underpinned the decision to bring in some fresh skills, said David McLeman, boss at Ancoris.

"The key thing for us as more people adopt Google apps is that Google is starting to open up its own infrastructure to all [customers and channel partners] to develop custom applications," he told The Channel.

He reckons customers made the leap to Google's cloud infrastructure with email and calendar but are turning to more collaborative app elements.

The App Engine is a software development platform allowing partners to build generic applications using Google's infrastructure.

Google BigQuery is web query engine designed to allow customers to process big data sets such as for Business Intelligence applications.

This is the second small buy Ancoris has pushed through after snapping up another Google Enterprise partner Cloud Skills, which sells training and e-learning modules that support Google's products. ®
