AWS, Advanced Consulting Partner

The cloud is a driving force behind technological disruption affecting every organization, making it critical to businesses’ efforts to transform and remain relevant. As they adapt to change, firms are adopting the cloud to boost agility, increase speed to market, reduce costs and strengthen security.

The alliance with Amazon Web Services (AWS) offers KPMG member firms the ability to provide reliable, scalable and affordable IT services from one of the world’s foremost cloud infrastructure providers.

KPMG member firms offer an extensive combination of technical knowledge, consultancy capabilities and regulatory expertise. Our trusted team of AWS certified cloud engineers complements KPMG’s wider expertise in strategy, operating models, IT, cyber security, governance, risk and compliance. This unique combination gives to clients, in often highly regulated industries – such as financial services, healthcare and life sciences, and the public sector – the security and guidance they need to maximize the benefits of the cloud and accelerate their transformation journey.

Together, KPMG and AWS can help you harness the power of the full AWS cloud suite. Our member firms technical and advisory experts work hand in hand to help you migrate your IT infrastructure efficiently to the cloud, develop robust systems architecture, establish your underlying cloud processes, and drive greater value from purpose-built cloud solutions.

KPMG and AWS in the Public Sector

KPMG and AWS can give Public Sector clients the security and guidance needed to enable you to make the most of the benefits of the cloud and accelerate to a successful and secure transformation journey.

Leading cloud providers - such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) - are built for large-scale elasticity. But as organizations move to the cloud, they still need help to manage cybersecurity and compliance risks. We’re pleased to announce that, following a rigorous third-party audit to assess the depth of our experience with AWS services as well as large AWS adopters, KPMG has been recognized with a global Security Competency by AWS for delivering quality projects.

This recognition comes because of the strong global collaboration across cyber, alliance and technology teams, as well as the successful delivery of a number of cyber security client engagements.
