KPMG and SAS to establish Cloud Acceleration Centres for faster cloud transformation

By

Global advisory firm, KPMG, and global analytics software vendor, SAS, have announced a plan to establish Cloud Acceleration Centres to help accelerate the move to the cloud for SAS clients. These will be specifically focused in Asia Pacific, Europe and North America.

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.

The centres will be highly collaborative and bring together multidisciplinary teams, aiding organisations in preparing for their post-COVID reality and be future-ready. This cloud-based SAS infrastructure will also allow clients to benefit from a number of readily-available cloud solutions and managed services encompassing SAS’ skills and expertise in accounting change, fraud and risk management, procurement integrity and others.

“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.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
