Big Four firm KPMG International has partnered with Google to create solutions for secure cloud computing, machine learning, enterprise mobility and advanced analytics technologies.

These solutions will be built on the Google Cloud Platform (GCP). Global KPMG member firms engage with clients on solutions for financial services, insurance, health care, manufacturing and retail, among other industries. These new solutions, including customer service solutions, contract management, cyber security, regulatory compliance and business and process performance, will benefit from GCP’s security, advanced data analytics and machine learning, firm officials stated.

KPMG has already released two GCP-based solutions: KPMG Intelligent Interactions for creating a differentiated customer experience, and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Assessment and Compliance solutions for managing customer data and privacy. KPMG also provides machine learning models that can be customized using Google Cloud Machine Learning Engine.

“Organizations are seeing advanced technologies and natural language experiences as a key to transforming their businesses,” stated Miriam Hernandez-Kakol, KPMG’s global leader for customer and operations and executive sponsor for the Google Alliance. “KPMG is creating data-driven solutions that harness Google Cloud technology, including machine learning, to help our member firm clients advance business strategies and deliver unrivaled digital experiences.”

“Our alliance with KPMG helps customers across industries benefit from the advantages of Google Cloud, including our advanced security, data analytics and machine learning capabilities, to solve real business challenges,” added Tariq Shaukat, president, partners and industry platforms, Google Cloud. “We’re working alongside KPMG to develop new solutions that help enable customers to actively participate in the ideation and creation of their own solutions.”
