EMC is to buy UK IT consulting firm Conchango for $84m, in a move designed to boost its global IT Consulting Services arm and support UK and European users.

Conchango specialises in the design, development and delivery of custom applications for companies such Tesco, Tarmac, Virgin Atlantic and Sky. EMC said the acquisition will support businesses in the UK and across Europe, and will expand its information infrastructure consulting services around the world.

Howard Elias, president, EMC global services and resource management software group, said, "The addition of Conchango will significantly expand our global capabilities to design, build and deliver tightly integrated solutions for our customers' most critical business applications."

Last year Conchango worked with Marks & Spencer to integrate Amazon's e- commerce engine into the retailer's core merchandising system.
