At KPMG, we are committed to serving the public interest and bring value to our audited entities, through continuous innovation and adoption of transformative technologies, such as robotics, AI, and advanced analytics. By leveraging leading technologies, we are transforming the audit experience for our professionals and our audited entities. It enables us to provide an even higher quality audit by increasing our ability to focus on the issues that matter through the data and insights it provides. We have a well-established culture of innovation that is underpinned by two key factors: a relentless focus on the right Values and investing in transformational technologies through strategic alliances.

The advanced KPMG Clara platform is one example of both factors at work. It empowers our people to bring a greater range and depth of data-driven collaborative insights to our audited entities. It’s all part of our vision to reshape the future of audit by harnessing the power of leading technologies and new ways of working together in an accelerating digital world.
