In a world inundated with data, organizations are collecting information at a continuously accelerating rate, but most still struggle to convert data into actionable insights and tangible business value.

The data and artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities, methodologies and offerings of KPMG firms, combined with Microsoft’s advanced cloud technologies, can enable accelerated transformations to help you maximize the value of your data, including SAS workloads. KPMG professionals and Microsoft can help you move beyond mere data collection to data strategy, better informing your most critical decisions to help realize growth opportunities, cost savings, strategic value, and/or reduced risk.

Technology by itself cannot convert data into insight and value. Yet, when combined with services from an adviser who understands your objectives, a technology platform can enable new business models and provide a competitive advantage. KPMG firms help streamline your journey to the cloud with a detailed assessment of existing IT infrastructure, strategic cloud planning aligned to business use cases, and Azure migration consulting expertise.

By migrating SAS workloads to Microsoft Azure with KPMG, you can:

  • Enhance your IT infrastructure with architecture strategy and a cloud-based unified data platform, consolidating existing disparate on-premise or hybrid data sources.
  • Help maximize SAS investments with native integrations across Azure Data and AI services to help build a highly scalable and flexible data environment.
  • Aim to quickly transform raw data into insights and support key business decisions with SAS Viya, an AI and analytics data management platform built on Azure.
  • Leverage cost-efficient licensing through enhanced deployment of SAS solutions to address different business needs.
  • Help reduce time to market and streamline IT modernization by adding capabilities as needed, which can eliminate the need to invest in physical infrastructure.
  • Manage compliance and help reduce risk of data exposure with Azure identity and access management solutions.
