(Reuters) – a british competition watchdog on Thursday gave the go-ahead to Google’s $2.6 billion acquisition of the privately held big data analytics company Looker Data Sciences.

The Competition and Markets said the probe found the deal would not have a negative impact on the quality of the service, or to competition in the market for data analysis tools and software.
