Bradford Microsoft Power Platform specialist acquired by Manchester group

Cloud2, a Bradford-based data analytics and process automation specialist, has been acquired by managed IT, cloud and digital transformation expert, BCN Group.

Cloud2 is at the forefront of developing solutions underpinned by the Microsoft Power Platform to create real time visualisations solving complex data and compliance issues for Public Sector and Healthcare organisations across the UK.

The Microsoft Gold Accreditations the business brings will take BCN Group’s total number of Gold Accreditations to 10, further solidifying BCN as a top-tier Microsoft partner.

Cloud2’s Healthcare and Public Sector offerings will also further enhance BCN Group’s capabilities across these areas, with BCN Group’s current partner accreditations for the NHS’ Health and Social Care IT Network (HSCN) and G-Cloud making the combined service offering market leading.

The acquisition means that Manchester-based BCN Group can provide its clients with a complete and all-encompassing data analytics and workflow solutions service providing real-time displays of data and trends that will allow decision makers to plan more accurately  for future events.

It will further complement BCN Group’s existing Cloud product and managed service offering, especially in the areas of PowerApps, Power BI data analytics and dashboard reporting.

“The acquisition of Cloud2 allows us to provide existing and new clients with a complete and comprehensive suite of on premise and cloud solutions delivered by skilled and experienced experts,” said Simon Kelf, CEO of BCN Group.

“It not only complements our existing product and service offering but means we can take our combined capability to the next level and further establish BCN as key service provider across the Public Sector and healthcare arena.”

Taran Sohal at Cloud2 said: “We have achieved great things since launching Cloud2 in 2008 and have established the business as a leader in the data analytics industry.

“This has only been possible because of the highly skilled and incredibly talented team of people that are Cloud2, and I would like to thank them for helping the business become what it is today.

“I’m incredibly excited by about the acquisition and what it will mean to the Cloud 2 team and our clients as we bring the combined capability of the two businesses together to continue to deliver exceptional services and outcomes to our clients.”
