KPMG today announced that they are expanding their partnership with Microsoft to deliver new suites of innovative solutions and services in data and analytics (D&A), cloud compliance and transformation, and business solutions. 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.
The global collaboration will facilitate the development and selling of new, innovative and scalable solutions and services in three key areas:
- Data and Analytics: Clients will derive increased performance and productivity with a new, integrated data and analytics platform and Microsoft’s data solutions within the cloud, and in their existing environment using tools from Microsoft Office over Power BI, to machine learning and predictive analytics
- Cloud Compliance and Transformation: Clients will benefit from new cloud compliance and cloud transformation offerings. Microsoft will provide hyper-scale, enterprise-grade and hybrid cloud technologies. KPMG will work with clients to help ensure compliance requirements, supply expert know-how and change management expertise. Building on decades of experience with technology disruption and transformation, KPMG and Microsoft will help clients make the journey to the cloud safer and more secure.
- Business Solutions: KPMG will use Microsoft’s Dynamics Enterprise Resource Planning and CRM Solutions to further its technology-enabled transformation and customer and growth engines.
