Expanding the Microsoft cloud transformation journey for our clients.
“At Microsoft, we truly believe that partner-to-partner collaboration is of paramount importance to support our customers' rapidly evolving needs as they realize their digital transformation.
Dexmach and KPMG joining forces will ultimately bring more innovation that will allow our customers to realize their full potential in the cloud."
Erik Kerkhofs, Partner Lead Microsoft Belgium and Luxembourg.
Transforming business services to leverage cloud capabilities is on nearly every CEO’s agenda, while Microsoft Azure and Office 365 have already been deployed across many major organizations. That’s why, together with DexMach – a Microsoft ‘Partner of the Year 2020’ – our latest joint transformation solution is built primarily on the Microsoft cloud, offering a large portfolio of embedded solutions with two major benefits for your organization: cost control and innovation opportunities.
While it’s tempting to limit your move to the cloud to just some of your IT services to reduce cost, doing so can result in a “lift-and-shift” approach that ultimately limits the cost effectiveness of the cloud for your IT organization.
Because trying to maintain a cloud solution with traditional management and security measures has a negative impact on cost control, meaning that true value can only be obtained by adapting IT infrastructure to new ways of IT management and operations.
Realizing the full benefit of cloud investment requires your local IT team – or integrating partner – to have deep knowledge of cloud services, both in terms of cloud mentality and having the right tools and skills to control your cloud environment.
Through the KPMG-DexMach alliance, we are more equipped than ever to provide this holistic approach, with KPMG providing the transformation know-how to embed a cloud mentality throughout your organization, while DexMach offers control over your cloud environment through insights, compliancy measurement and automation.
In other words, your move to the cloud is standardized, operations become predictable, and new insights become available that help you to visualize overall cost, immediately access updated strategic roadmaps, pinpoint efficiency gains and even make better use of Microsoft cloud subscriptions already purchased.
You stay in control and your IT organization becomes embedded into business processes, rather than simply being considered an operational cost.
Describing the advantages of the collaboration, Anthony Van de Ven said: “The expectations that companies have today from a Big Four player like KPMG is that we deploy the services we design; making us a single point of contact for strategic advice, structured deployment and operational control. This alliance is a big step in building a thorough solution framework for our clients in the Belgian market, helping them to stay in control of the strategic and tactical facets during their cloud transformation projects.”
Meanwhile, customer expectations, technology evolution and disruptive events like COVID-19 force organizations to rethink their business models. Whether B2B or B2C, customers expect on-demand, continuously connected and versatile solutions. “As-a-Service” offerings have become the new gold, while automation offers manufacturing businesses the possibility to shift from ‘one-off’ sales to continuous income models.
Decades of experience has allowed KPMG to lead the way in the digital transformation journey of business services, but underlying technical components have at times been under-represented. Through our alliance, DexMach will deploy its powerful data mining capabilities to more fully represent that ‘bottom-up’ segment, helping you to take advantage of innovation opportunities across all levels of your business.
“DexMach has an approach, services and tools to support customers building their cloud partner eco-system. Through this alliance we can orchestrate customer cloud benefits on technical and business levels to accelerate innovation in the cloud,” said Kurt Van Hoecke, CEO DexMach.
By combining our diverse expertise into a joint market offering, KPMG and DexMach are empowering our clients to more freely choose from a wider-ranging service package and realize the full potential of cloud transformation.
