The announcement was made during the SAS Global Forum virtual conference this week, with the centres aiming to help companies navigate their journey to the cloud efficiently and cost-effectively, covering design and architecture through implementation.
“An accelerated move to the cloud has become a necessity for many organisations; optimising and adapting business processes is a great opportunity to maximise the power of the cloud,” said Oliver Schabenberger, SAS Chief Technology Officer and Chief Operating Officer. “SAS and KPMG continue to work together to help our mutual clients make the most of this transformation.”
“We’re excited to be expanding our global alliance with SAS,” said Christian Rast, Global Head of Technology and Knowledge for KPMG International. “With these centres, KPMG professionals can continue to help SAS clients to derive increased value from successfully moving to the cloud as well as drive improved collaboration that will enhance the current solution portfolio, which already includes solutions such as Procurement Integrity and Anti-Money laundering compliance that have been particularly helpful for organisations during the current pandemic. Additional advanced compliance solutions that are helping clients to meet regulatory requirements with increased speed and accuracy will also be prioritised.”
KPMG has over 400 practitioners globally who can support SAS clients with cloud transformation.
