A leading energy company taps the full power of a digital enterprise

Enabling digital transformation through flexible managed services


Electric and gas utility company

Deploying and managing ServiceNow with KPMG Powered Evolution managed services

Project at a glance

Recognizing the need to modernize, digitize, and connect workflows enterprise-wide, this energy company chose ServiceNow as their cloud platform partner. Even as our client’s team prepared for deployment of its first initiative, it was looking ahead at how to maintain momentum.

KPMG LLP (KPMG) worked with our client to execute a successful digital transformation implementation, and strategically grow the new ServiceNow platform to support ongoing transformation.

Our practical approach and the KPMG Powered Evolution solution provide the agility this utility company needs, bringing in the right people and processes at the right time and providing insights into what ServiceNow can offer today as well as new functionality coming tomorrow.

Client challenge

This energy company chose ServiceNow as a critical, foundational platform to transform how IT services are delivered to their workforce and to drive significant improvement in cyber and IT operational performance. Their adoption of ServiceNow would achieve their goals and set the stage for a thoroughly automated, deliberately digital, enterprise IT platform supporting their pursuit of technology-driven outcomes.

With the go-live date and deployment to 10,000 users fast approaching, the company was struggling to build needed in-house capabilities, due to internal hiring constraints and fierce competition for ServiceNow talent.

In addition, their strategy and aspirations for ServiceNow-based future initiatives would likely require more and different resources—so the in-house capabilities they were trying to build might not serve future needs.

To me, relationships are extremely important, and that’s a strength of KPMG. It goes beyond ink on paper. They’re committed to our success. And they show it every day in how flexible and agile they are in meeting our needs.

Key KPMG initiatives

In addition to determining how KPMG could best meet our client’s immediate deployment needs, we brought in our Powered Evolution team to strategize on how to support the company’s ongoing transformation. Our client’s candor and transparency fostered a powerful working relationship. Together, our two teams supported broader objectives, such as growing the platform, as well as tactical aims including the development of structured frameworks for handling break-fix issues and incremental enhancements.

Since 2019, we’ve worked with this client on key initiatives:

  • A three-year program involving the implementation of and managed services for the cloud platform across IT services (Business, Operations, Field Services Management, and Security)
  • Ongoing managed services delivering aggressive work sprints, multiple patch cycles, and version upgrades
  • An Agile program involving process optimization, technology architecture, configuration, and deployment for more than 10,000 internal users
  • An optimal framework for enhancing the company’s ability to track, manage, and forecast demand for products and services across all business units.
