Global Head of KPMG Lighthouse, Center of Excellence for Data & Analytics and Intelligent Automation
KPMG in Germany
“The key to executing any digital strategy is the ability to turn data into value” – following this paradigm, since 2014 Thomas has been building KPMG’s global organization around Data & Analytics, known as KPMG Lighthouse. The purpose of KPMG Lighthouse is two-fold: to help clients with their digital transformation by enabling them to actually work with data in the context of emerging data-driven trends from Advanced Analytics to Digital Labour/Intelligent Automation to Blockchain to Artificial Intelligence to the Internet of Things.
At the same time, the mission of KPMG Lighthouse is to ensure that the core services of KPMG International as a global +200k people strong professional services firm remain future proof. Hence the Lighthouse works closely with all other parts of KPMG’s business across Audit, Tax and Advisory to ensure that they as well embrace the opportunities that data and its analysis provide.
