Yesterday (April 22nd), multinational professional services firm EY announced that it had formed a strategic partnership with technology giant Microsoft to deliver new and innovative services through both companies' digital strengths.

The joint services provided by the two companies will play on EY's strengths in analytics, cyber security, digital enterprise strategy, digital and emerging technology enablement, people services, and programme management to deliver new offerings in Microsoft's cloud and data platforms.

It is hoped the partnership will help to remove barriers in the way of customers trying to achieve digital adoption, while also improving the employee experience in the workplace and maximising returns on investment in digital technologies.

Mark Weinberger, global chairman and chief executive officer of EY, said: "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."

He added that the partnership is all about helping companies boost their return on investment as they move towards a more analytical, automated, cloud-based environment.

The foundation of the relationship between the two firms focuses on the vast number of users with Microsoft product experience and bringing EY's business, digital, analytic, and program management experience to companies in a manner that is familiar, while allowing them to transition to a more powerful cloud-based experience.

Kevin Turner, chief operating officer at Microsoft, explained: "Bringing together EY’s advisory services with Microsoft’s trusted cloud capabilities will help customers turn data insights into action, deliver measurable business outcomes and accelerate their transformations."

Both companies will work together to help customers realise the full benefits of their investments more quickly and utilise technology for strategic advantage.

Carmine Di Sibio, EY global managing partner for client services, added that as one of Microsoft's largest customers, his firm has a unique ability to understand the business impact of the technology behemoth's services.

He expects new products and services to be developed as the relationship grows that will help drive digital offerings and help customers to achieve their potential in a better working world.
