PETALING JAYA, 13 September 2021 — IDC MarketScape, the ICT industry's premier vendor assessment tool, has ranked professional services firm KPMG as a worldwide Leader in Asia/Pacific Intelligent Automation (IA) Services for 2021.
This recognition was published in the IDC MarketScape: 2021 Asia/Pacific Intelligent Automation Services report following analysis of today's leading Asia-Pacific service providers. The MarketScape report calls KPMG an important partner of Intelligent Automation vendors in Asia Pacific and notes that KPMG’s “pedigree as a large-scale advisory and IT implementation services provider across several countries in the Asia Pacific region allows it the opportunity to both lead complex regional automation initiatives and scale automation adoption among its customers.”
Chan Siew Mei, Head of Advisory at KPMG in Malaysia, commented, "We’re very proud of this latest recognition, which validates our early decision to invest in emerging technologies, quality talents and strategic partnerships to drive data-driven digital initiatives. This enabled KPMG to be well-positioned to support our clients’ digital transformation journeys, especially at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic when technology investments had to happen at speed to minimize disruption to businesses.”
The firm’s IA services are driven by the KPMG Lighthouse center in Malaysia and in 39 other locations around the world, supported by 20 regional automation delivery centers and 12 Insights Centers. By tapping into KPMG’s global network of expertise and alliances, the firm is able to assist organizations in implementing IR 4.0 technologies that will accelerate Malaysia’s digital economy, which is a priority set by the Government via the RM20 billion PEMERKASA national stimulus package to drive Malaysia’s high-income aspirations.
"We believe IA will be essential to Malaysia’s economic growth in the next decade where the fast development of disruptive technologies has demonstrated the ability to substantially alter the global economic landscape. At KPMG, we’ve demonstrated how IA can deliver long-term value to big and small organizations across all industries, and we look forward to helping our clients achieve their growth objectives in this critical period of post-pandemic business recovery", said Siew Mei.
