SkyKick Expands in Europe

Hoping to capitalize on an anticipated explosion of cloud opportunities in Europe, channel-focused cloud management software provider SkyKick is opening a European office Thursday in Amsterdam.

The move will double SkyKick's European headcount, although the Seattle-based company did not provide precise employee numbers. SkyKick's European operations were previously concentrated in the United Kingdom, where the company will maintain a presence.

SkyKick is looking to IDC projections that public cloud services in Western Europe will grow at a compound annual rate greater than 25 percent through 2020. "The number of European companies that are moving their business to the cloud continues to skyrocket," said SkyKick EMEA General Manager Kathryn Saducas in a statement.

In an aptly named facility in Amsterdam called "The Cloud," which also houses offices for Amazon and Uber, the new SkyKick office will support partners in Europe with the first SkyKick Support Center outside the United States, as well as providing a base for sales and operations employees.

The new office follows SkyKick's recent addition of support for cloud migrations and backup to Microsoft's German datacenters in Magdeburg and Frankfurt.

SkyKick delivers tools that allow partners to migrate customers from various platforms to Microsoft Office 365, back up customer data to the cloud and manage customer environments.
