Alliance expected to help organizations achieve meaningful business outcomes while leveraging cross-functional capabilities

Dubai, 17 January 2023: KPMG Lower Gulf has announced a partnership with G42 Cloud – the largest and most influential cloud platform in the region – for cross-collaboration on a number of priority solutions, including new opportunities and projects, and complementary service offerings that will enhance both their service portfolios.

Emilio Pera, CEO of KPMG Lower Gulf and Talal Al Kaissi, CEO of G42 Cloud, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in the presence of other senior dignitaries.

Many organizations in the region have a defined cloud strategy but others are yet to unlock its full potential. Outdated systems and legacy architecture are still a major obstacle. To maximize the advantage of the cloud, organizations will need to apply new technologies to modernize, as well as introduce agile methods and techniques.

The partnership between KPMG Lower Gulf and G42 Cloud will empower enterprises and public sector entities, to elevate their business using a smart, secure and next-generation cloud computing platform.

Emilio Pera, CEO of KPMG Lower Gulf, said: “Transitioning to the cloud is a critical aspect of digital transformation. As more organizations in the region embark on exciting and transformational digital journeys, both KPMG and G42 Cloud have the combined industry insight, technologies and established expertise to manage cloud-based solutions. We are pleased to collaborate with G42 Cloud in a joint effort to enable organizations to improve their business proposition in today’s complex and continuously changing digital ecosystem.”

Talal M. Al Kaissi, CEO of G42 Cloud, said: “We are delighted to partner with KPMG Lower Gulf to provide a portfolio of ready-made, cloud-based services for organizations. As the leading Sovereign cloud platform in the region, we are continuously exploring new partnerships that enhance our offerings across cloud computing, IoT, big data and AI. We eliminate information silos in enterprise applications, and we are keen to reach a wider network through a mutually beneficial partnership with KPMG.”
