EY and KPMG have respectively announced new client solutions out of their respective partnership with Microsoft.

EY announced the launch of Workplace insights which is a data analytics tool which reveals how teams spend their time, collaborate and engage, both internally and externally. From this data EY can advise clients to enhance their workforce productivity.

EY global lead, technology, media & entertainment, and telecommunications Greg Cudahy said: “Particularly for large transformations that can drive hundreds of millions of dollars in value, organisations need to be sure they can pinpoint their most collaborative and productive teams and facilities. Workplace Insights provides near-real-time, quantifiable feedback on what’s working and what is not, so organisations can quickly identify and leverage workforce opportunities.”

KPMG on the other hand announced the launch of the Global Digital Solution Hub which centre on artificial intelligence to help clients make strategic decisions. KPMG also announced that it will place its smart audit platform, KPMG Clara, on Microsoft’s intelligent cloud services and artificial intelligence technology, Microsoft Azure.

This move will further automate the audit service line, KPMG said in a statement, which would in turn reduce the burden on clients around data preparation and delivery.
