What do we work with in NextGen Operations?
The NextGen Operations Advisory team is an agile team that combines expert advisory services with automation solutions. We are a large team of professionals, both just coming out of university as well as colleagues with many years of experience. We are driven by integrity and embrace challenges to optimise our clients' operational processes.
Within NextGen Operations Advisory, we utilise the power of automation technologies to streamline workflows and drive operational efficiency. We also enable insights-driven decision-making for our clients by incorporating artificial intelligence. Moreover, our colleagues optimise procurement and sourcing services, helping our clients to achieve cost savings, supplier management optimisation and improved sourcing strategies.
We have four areas of expertise within NextGen Operations Advisory: Procurement Advisory, Enterprise Service Management, NewTech and Enterprise Resource Planning and Project Management. You can read more about each area by scrolling down the page.
Procurement Advisory includes both procurement transformation and IT sourcing services. The Procurement Transformation team optimises our clients' businesses through technology by implementing source-to-pay platforms such as Coupa and iValua. You will be part of end-to-end projects, working on business process design, technology and integrations, and supplier and content enablement. Moreover, we also work with strategic sourcing, contract life cycle management, supplier risk and performance management, category optimisation, and much more. We are a very diverse and international team, and we all have a passion for procurement and digital transformations.
IT sourcing is focused on the great variety of services guiding clients through the full lifecycle of IT contracts and the acquisition of IT services through tender processes. We assist our clients with anything from shaping sourcing strategies to tender support, transition assistance, contract management and termination services
Improving processes, managing supplier risks, or even enabling procurement technologies, we have a great variety of missions within the Procurement Transformation team.
Enterprise Service Management
The Enterprise Service Management team empowers our clients to redefine and optimise their processes. From technical implementations to process enhancements, the projects revolve around working smarter on a unified platform, primarily ServiceNow.
In a market with limited Enterprise Service Management and ServiceNow experts, we nurture talent within KPMG. As a graduate in Enterprise Service Management, you will go on an educational journey by, for instance, taking Prince2 and ITIL courses or core consulting skills training. Our colleagues also specialise in ServiceNow and become certified implementation specialists. Our more experienced colleagues receive regular brush-up courses to stay on top of the trends in ServiceNow.
Our colleagues in NewTech are passionate about bringing new technologies into organisations and seek to enlighten, guide and implement artificial intelligence solutions in collaboration with our clients to improve their businesses and help them benefit from the rapidly evolving ecosystem of technology. We challenge the daily life of companies by selling completely new and innovative offerings and take a technology-based approach to make businesses agile and stay competitive.
Our projects run end-to-end with our clients on board. The team has the opportunity to work on all phases, from ideation to creation and implementation. This means that you will be working with the problem identification and potential benefits at the client to defining and planning roadmaps, and from analysing and designing solutions to building and implementing the solution.
What I think is really interesting about working in NewTech, is that we are so much on the forefront of technology. We can create change that people did not think was possible with technologies they did not know.
Enterprise Resource Planning and Project Management
The Enterprise Resource Planning and Project Management team consists of more experienced project managers and technology advisors. We help our clients with the approach and implementation of larger digital transformation projects, for instance ERP systems, business intelligence & analytics or other technologies. The team acts as a core part of the client's team and works closely together with their system integrator and manage the implementation of the new system. This means that, sometimes, we are alone at the client. But not to worry, we always make sure we regularly meet in the office and have each other as sparring partners.
