EY second Big Four to partner with Microsoft

EY has become the second Big Four network to announce an alliance with Microsoft, following a similar partnership between the tech provider and KPMG last month.

The deal will allow EY to provide digital services leveraging Microsoft's cloud and data platforms in conjunction with the network's analytics, cyber security, digital enterprise strategy, digital and emerging technology resources.

According to EY, the provision is aimed at removing barriers to digital adoption, improve the experience of employees in the workplace and maximise client companies' return on digital investment.

In particular, the relationship is targeted at the large number of EY clients who are also Microsoft product users, allowing them to move to "a more powerful cloud-based experience" in a way that is both familiar and makes use of "EY's business, digital, analytic, and program management experience".

The latest agreement closely mirrors that announced between KPMG and Microsoft at the end of March.

The deal was similarly aimed at providing KPMG's clients with data and analytics services aimed at increasing clients' performance and productivity in areas including customer relationship management and enterprise resource planning.

According to EY global chairman and chief executive officer Mark Weinberger, the agreement with Microsoft is "all about helping companies improve their return on investment as they move to a more analytical, automated, cloud-based environment."
