Welcome to our newsletter

We are happy to announce the first edition of our Technology Insights newsletter with the focus of providing insights into current topics within the world of IT and to cover aspects from strategy to execution and follow-up.

KPMG is well established in the Danish market and we have a strong team that focuses on IT advisory services. KPMG in Denmark is part of the global KPMG network and we have more than 250 IT consultants in the Nordic countries.  If you are interested in hearing more about the following topics or other IT advisory services, please contact us.

CIO Survey

In collaboration with Harvey Nash, KPMG has developed one of the most comprehensive CIO Surveys on the market. Last year almost 4,000 CIOs participated globally, and the results show among other things that 66% of CIOs focus on IT projects that make money, and that one in four CIOs has reported a major IT security incident in the past year.

Privacy compliance

As the EU has announced the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) it is now beyond doubt that Privacy in most organisations will move from being a small itch somewhere in the IT or Legal departments to a significant concern at CxO-level.

There are three primary reasons why the GDPR will be a game changer:

  • All organisations are required to alert the authorities within 72 hours in case of a data breach involving personal identifiable information.
  • Failure to comply with the GDPR may lead to fines that amount to 4% of the global annual turnover or 20 mEUR, whichever is higher.
  • The GDRP includes obligations to adopt the principles of Privacy by Design and Privacy by Default – meaning that when appropriate, identity must be concealed in the processing of information and that privacy of personal information should be a default setting.

KPMG assists clients in completing Privacy Impact Assessments, getting a situational overview of compliance gaps and building road maps to get to the desired state.

IT Operating Models

In recent years, many companies and their IT departments have experienced new challenges from various fronts. It has e.g. become easier for the business to identify and buy Cloud solutions, leaders and users are more IT knowledgeable, and many new opportunities on mobile and social platforms are emerging. The new platforms enable direct communication with the users, who in turn expect that their questions are answered immediately. The IT platforms are an integrated part of most business processes, and the demands for quick delivery and high quality have never been greater.

KPMG has formulated a Point-of-view that examines the challenges IT departments face today and how CIOs can meet these challenges by using a new operating model for IT which focuses on driving innovation and value creation.

KPMG to implement Microsoft Dynamics AX

At KPMG, we are proud to announce that we have won an end-to-end ERP implementation project with a Danish manufacturing company, Ortofon A/S. Ortofon is a fine-mechanical powerhouse which develops and manufactures world acclaimed phono cartridges and hearing aid components. KPMG will be implementing Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012R3 as a wall-to-wall ERP system supporting sales, procurement, production, warehouse management, quality control and finance.

Supply Chain Director Markus Jonsson from Ortofon says: "We selected KPMG as our Microsoft Dynamics AX implementation partner, as KPMG's services catalogue goes much beyond regular technology services.
