EY, Microsoft Partner to Accelerate Customers' Digital Adoption


EY announced a strategic business relationship with Microsoft to deliver new and innovative services through its digital-age strengths to companies around the world.

EY Global Chairman and CEO Mark Weinberger says the services will utilize EY’s practices in analytics, cyber security, digital enterprise strategy, digital and emerging technology enablement, people services, and program management to deliver new offerings using Microsoft’s cloud and data platforms. The goal is to help customers remove barriers to digital adoption, improve employee experience at work, and maximize companies’ return on their investment in digital technologies, he says.

“By using the combined forces of EY and Microsoft, companies can accelerate into a highly digitally-enabled enterprise and optimize the investments in software they have made over the years,” says Weinberger. “This is all about helping companies improve their return on investment as they move to a more analytical, automated, cloud-based environment.”

The core of the relationship focuses on the vast number of users with Microsoft product experience and brings EY’s business, digital, analytic, and program management experience to companies. The alliance will focus on:

· Jointly delivering business services using Microsoft technologies and EY’s business and technology skills, including advanced program management and purpose-led transformation;

· Combining Microsoft technologies and EY expertise to advance cybersecurity across industries;

· Deploying a variety of enterprise products on Microsoft Azure, with EY collaborating closely with Microsoft Consulting Services;

· Using Azure based applications to harvest near-term value out of software and data that reside currently within customers’ existing operations;

· Establishing co-innovation capabilities on a host of advanced management science applications and driving customers’ business advantage from the “internet of things.”
