Google enterprise partner Ancoris acquires Appogee

Cloud handshake

UK-based Google Premier Enterprise Partner Ancoris has acquired Google Cloud development specialist Appogee.

Ancoris said the purchase will allow the company to build out its Google Cloud Platform, Android development, and Lotus Domino migration skills.

The announcement comes almost five months to the day since Ancoris bought e-learning and Google Apps for Business training firm Cloud Skills in October 2012. As with that acquisition, the amount paid for Appogee has not been disclosed.

David McLeman, managing director of Ancoris, said: “We are delighted to announce the acquisition of Appogee. Google are opening up their Cloud Platform and this move means that we can now help our customers take full advantage by providing application development, big data query capabilities and cloud storage to meet the increasingly dynamic demands of their business.”

Stuart Keeble, the general manager of Appogee, will now become the CTO of Ancoris. Of the acquisition, he said: “Appogee is an excellent fit with Ancoris. We are happy to be able to continue the good work we started at Appogee following our acquisition.

“With Google covering an ever broader range of enterprise computing capabilities, the Appogee team are excited to be able to introduce new ways of working to our clients both through our products and our custom applications built on [the] Google Cloud Platform.”
