KPMG, Microsoft partner to boost India's digital transformation

Published: Dec 5, 2016

Starting out as a newswire journalist covering beats as diverse as business, politics, entertainment, crime, civic affairs, cricket and defence, I was keen to pursue a career in print or broadcast journalism. But the emerging world of multimedia storytelling promised a fascinating future, and I changed my focus to digital media more than a decade ago. Before Forbes India, I have worked for organisations such as ANI, Money Control, Arabian Business, Yahoo India and VFS Global. I hold master's degrees in Communication Studies (University of Pune, India) and Journalism (University of Westminster, London, UK).

KPMG in India and Microsoft India announced a strategic Internet of Things (IoT) Advisory partnership, which will enable them to combine their advanced technologies, industry insights, and creative thinking to accelerate the digital transformation of large and mid-market Indian enterprises.

The IoT Advisory will help enterprises deploy solutions that can drive cloud based automation, generate operational insights through IoT, provide better customer relationship management and analytics, improve organizational agility, and increase workforce mobility.

“The IoT Advisory will help define IoT usage scenarios for customers and then implement them for desired business impact, said Peter Gartenberg - General Manager, Enterprise and Partner Group, Microsoft India, said in a statement.

Globally, KPMG is bringing together its business transformation expertise with Microsoft's industry-leading cloud technologies and business solutions to give companies the combined business and technological strengths they need to be successful. The model will be replicated in India as well.

“Our alliance in India is a strategic step towards helping our customers achieve valuable business insights to make smart decisions faster while managing risk, compliance and security. This collaboration will help customers drive productivity and better performance, and help transform their business,” Rachna Nath, Partner and Head, Digital Consulting, KPMG in India said.
