KPMG International and Microsoft announced two important strategic initiatives that will expand the scope of their global alliance: providing clients with a portfolio of digital solutions, and enabling KPMG’s smart audit platform, KPMG Clara – both built on KPMG business experience and the Microsoft intelligent cloud.
The two organizations are establishing the Global Digital Solution Hub, which will leverage Microsoft Azure intelligent cloud services and artificial intelligence (AI) technology with KPMG business experience to help companies transform all areas of their businesses -- including finance, operations and the customer experience.
KPMG and Microsoft also announced plans to place the new KPMG smart audit platform, known as KPMG Clara, on Microsoft Azure, which will make KPMG the first of the Big Four professional services firms to enable its member firms to conduct external financial statement audits utilizing Azure, a comprehensive, cloud-based platform.
