As 2020 comes to an end, businesses big and small have witnessed the profound impact of the novel coronavirus and learnt the importance of digitalisation for business transformation and to continue delivering value to stakeholders.
To this end, Ernst & Young (EY) has launched the EY Microsoft Services Group to enable clients across various sectors including financial services, energy, government and healthcare to reinvent the back office with Microsoft Cloud technologies and experience.
With more than 80% of EY client services and solutions hosted on Microsoft Azure, the EY Microsoft Services Group builds on the organisations’ existing strategic alliance ecosystem that includes Microsoft Azure, Dynamics 365, Power Platform and Microsoft 365 cloud services.
Being the first to establish a dedicated Microsoft Services Group among the ‘Big Four’, the group will leverage Microsoft’s online learning catalogue and classrooms – to accelerate the EY capacity beyond today’s several thousand certified EY Microsoft practitioners and more than 20,000 EY employees with Microsoft training.
Greg Jenko, EY Global and Americas Microsoft Services Group Leader, said: “Business transformation remains at the forefront of many organisations’ priorities this year.
“With the establishment of the EY Microsoft Services Group, we are focused on applying EY teams’ technology capabilities to help deliver long-term value by accelerating digital transformation for clients.
“With a robust combination of Microsoft cloud-based products and deep EY technology consulting and delivery service experience across the globe, we provide the leading capabilities clients need in a rapidly changing digital landscape.”
