IT Advisory


KPMG’s IT Advisory teams strive to deliver business benefits from a broad range of technologies, helping our clients develop high-performing IT functions and leverage investments in current systems to deliver significant business value. We help business leaders gain confidence about their IT investments by providing clarity and assurance on how to secure the value from their investments. We bring insights in how to develop an IT organisation that enhances the business' ability to manage regulatory change, pursue growth and reduce costs to outperform peers.

Our expertise stretches across the IT landscape to guide clients to the right solution – an ERP implementation, a business intelligence system or an emerging technology – that meets specific business objectives. We also support clients' IT strategy and provide sourcing advice, examining logistics and supply chain issues and determining cost savings. Our skills in IT strategy and systems implementation help clients execute their transformation strategies with the technology best suited to their business, data and information requirements.


Our team is equipped with strong business skills, industry insights and functional capabilities in audit, tax, risk, regulatory and M&A. By operating as integrated teams of business and technical specialists, our global network provides a rich combination of skills and capabilities focused on delivering business value while managing risk. This reflects the reality that effective business transformation cannot occur without effective technology enablement.


Some recent examples of client work:

 

  • Healthcare provider accomplishes huge IT integration project following acquisition
    KPMG firms helped a US healthcare provider accomplish more than 45 IT integration projects in the wake of an acquisition. Acting as a single point of accountability, we applied our insights in leading program management practice to centralise and coordinate all activities related to the IT integration. We created the client's five-year road map, associated initiatives and budget, and analysed options for integration. We also accelerated momentum by installing and co-coordinating faster decision-making structures and processes.
  • Helping a UK government agency reconfigure their systems and process improves capability and performance
    KPMG firms brought clarity and insights to a UK government agency after it asked for our guidance on a major program to reconfigure systems and processes to better support key business areas. We helped the agency fully understand business needs and benefits and achieve buy-in for the program's aims and objectives. We prioritised key business and IT issues to balance short-term options alongside longer-term strategic options. Our approach produced quick wins and longer-term solutions that improved the capability and performance of the department, along with a set of evidence-based recommendations for decisions on the future scope and direction of the program.
