KPMG has launched a national technology innovation hub in Manchester, northwest England. The Solutions & Digital practice provides managed services to support the digital transformation of clients.

It will deploy experts to help solve specific challenges in cloud computing, digital learning, responses to regulatory change, automation and the use of technology to improve performance across front, middle and back-office functions.

On 2 September, about 100 staff – including data scientists, designers, software engineers, project managers and analysts – will transfer to the new office. The 12,000 sq ft space at the Manchester Technology Centre has the capacity to house more than 180 staff.
