Google Cloud builds local momentum with new partner

19 Mar 2018

Dynamo6, a cloud services and bespoke software provider, has been appointed as a Google Cloud partner this month, to join a growing network across New Zealand.

Dynamo6 is the first Waikato born and bred company to become a partner, after two senior systems engineers, Andrew Milne and Dominik Feiler, gained their certifications.    

Dynamo6 managing director Igor Matich says the partnership is indicative of Google Cloud’s approach to building a network of the best experts nationwide.

“There are many Waikato businesses looking at cloud transformations and when it comes to working with anyone on a change like this, being local is best.”

The addition of the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) to Dynamo6’s repertoire caps a successful five years for the business with it expanding its business from Hamilton into Auckland and the Bay of Plenty.

Part of this growth has been through extensive work with G Suite and Google Chrome, including migrating and optimising operational processes, particularly in education.

Being a Google Cloud partner adds to Dynamo6’s existing Google expertise and means being able to leverage Google’s full offering for clients, as well as offer the full suite of cloud services from all the main web services players.

“Some call this an agnostic approach to Cloud but we think this is a very passive description, where we see our role as being very active in understanding a business first and then guiding it on the best cloud platform, or multi-cloud approach, for now, and into the future,” Matich says.

“We are delighted we fit the Google Cloud mould as a partner, as a specialist and collaborator, a developer of apps and builder of code.  They are a discerning global player, developing a network of great partners - we’re in very good company.”

Dynamo6 is a five-year-old business that works for a wide range of clients, mostly in the upper North Island, but also some national organisations. It offers digital solutions to businesses, specialising in cloud, mobile and web development solutions.
