KPMG and Microsoft enter multi-year agreement to put clients at the forefront of the AI revolution.

We have expanded our global alliance with Microsoft. This new multi-year agreement means we will have access to an Artificial Intelligence (AI)-enabled application development platform to help speed up the creation of specialised technology solutions for clients.

The ability to rapidly develop and customise these solutions could unlock value where it was not previously possible, or disrupt your business model to enhance your profitability and strengthen your competitive advantage.

Our renewed and strengthened relationship with Microsoft is an exciting moment for our people and our clients. It will help harness the power of our multidisciplinary model by ensuring that our people always have the right expertise, skills and toolsets to overcome challenges and provide the very best advice to clients. It will also help make KPMG a more agile and resilient business that continues to be an interesting and exciting place to work. ​​​​ This expansion of our global alliance builds on the combined power of two world-class organizations that share a common set of core values, working together to responsibly use cutting-edge technology and AI. KPMG is embracing the future, and we believe that AI is key to unlocking sustainable growth in a way that will build a better future for our people, our clients and society.

Bill Thomas, Global Chairman and CEO
KPMG International

Expanding this alliance, positions the two global organisations as leaders in AI, by leveraging Microsoft’s technology and KPMG’s expertise to help strengthen innovation and efficiency.

"For us, this is just the beginning. AI is the biggest question facing businesses and society. It has the power to boost the UK’s productivity and generate an additional £31 billion of output every year. There are significant opportunities for our profession. We’re already using AI to spot trends, predict outcomes and quickly analyse huge volumes of data. Our alliance with Microsoft will enable us to go even further and jointly build products for our clients and give our people early access to new AI technology and tools."

Jon Holt, Chief Executive of KPMG in the UK

"This announcement signals another huge step forward in our continued and close strategic alliance with Microsoft. It enables KPMG to help our clients explore new markets and business opportunities with AI and embrace AI technologies to drive innovation, lead and differentiate with cloud-first initiatives. This alliance will also help us to drive digital transformation, continue to innovate and build repeatable business solutions together for our clients, as well as helping KPMG drive its own business forward."
