ANS Group's cloud app development credentials have been strengthened following its acquisition of Webantic, which was founded in 2011.
The deal enables ANS customers to migrate and manage their applications, and also develop next generation digital business applications in the public cloud.
The acquisition builds on ANS's Microsoft Gold Cloud Platform Provider and AWS Advance Partner status and enhances its ability to offer end-to-end managed cloud services.
Andy Barrow, CTO at ANS, said: "Organisations are using hyperscale public cloud services as the most strategic way of addressing the new world business challenges of infrastructure and, even more importantly, modern application development.
"Disruptive trends, such as AI and ML, are beginning to impact every industry. In response to this we're now seeing a fundamental shift in the need to provide scalability, speed and flexibility through cloud technology."
Paul Shannon, CEO at ANS, added: "Webantic brings expertise in the development of complex cloud-native applications. Our customers will now have a single point of expertise for cloud application development, migration and management services as well as cloud ready networks."
