Strategic collaboration to deliver new generation of data and analytics, cloud and business solutions.
KPMG announces an expansion of strategic relationship with Microsoft to include a global collaboration to jointly deliver new suites of innovative solutions and services in data and analytics (D&A), cloud compliance and transformation, and business solutions.
The collaboration signals an important phase in the Microsoft and KPMG relationship, driven by a shared certainty that clients are looking for business partners with solutions and services that combine the best in leading-edge technology, industry insight and innovative thinking with proven excellence in managing complex global projects. KPMG has already guided over 100 clients using Microsoft’s Business Intelligence (BI), Analytics and Microsoft Dynamics products to transform their business operations.
The new strategic collaboration, based on Microsoft’s Azure, Dynamics and data platforms, will allow Microsoft and KPMG member firms to work together to develop and deploy solutions and services that will help address the disruptive challenges topping the Board agenda today. These include realizing the business potential of one global, scalable platform which can deliver cloud-based solutions for Customer Relationship Management (CRM), Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Data and Analytics, which will collectively help transform the business while maintaining regulatory and compliance requirements.
Pascal Denis, KPMG Luxembourg’s Head of Advisory, said that:
“The CEOs I talk to in Luxembourg want data and analytics to transform their businesses and they look to KPMG for a powerful combination of business expertise and new technology. The strategic collaboration with Microsoft propels us to new heights in being able to help our clients in their journey to smarter, data-led – and inherently leaner - businesses.”
The global collaboration will facilitate the development and selling of new, innovative and scalable solutions and services in three key areas:
For KPMG, the collaboration with Microsoft will provide new and existing clients with preferred access to proven technology solutions including: advanced big data and analytic solutions built on Power BI and SQL Server, enterprise-grade, hybrid cloud technology from Windows Server and Microsoft Azure, and business solutions powered by Microsoft Dynamics.
For Microsoft, KPMG’s global reach and deep industry knowledge gives Microsoft access to new insights through KPMG’s role as a trusted advisor to the C-suite.
