KPMG US acquires AXIA Workday Consulting Practice

KPMG US has acquired the Workday Consulting Practice from AXIA Consulting, a technology and business consulting provider.

According to KPMG, the move will strengthen its business transformation support capabilities through its alliance with Workday, an enterprise cloud application provider for both finance and human capital management.

Stephen Chase, service line leader for technology at KPMG, praised the "deep and focused IT experience" of the joining Weekday team, abilities he said would "significantly" advance KPMG's ability to provide technology enablement and enterprise transformation support to its customers.

"In turn, AXIA's Workday professionals now have access to the extended capabilities that KPMG provides to the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) Enterprise Resource Planning marketplace," he added.

Ed Mueller, founder and chief executive officer of AXIA, said the acquisition would allow AXIA to refocus all resources on its advisory and consulting businesses and added: "KPMG is currently one of only a handful of Workday Partners that is building capabilities for full Workday Platform delivery, and the culture and vision of KPMG's Enterprise Solutions team provided an excellent fit for our team."
