Leading auditing firm KPMG has announced that it has signed a new partnership with Google that will see the two companies working together in the aim of further enabling enterprises to transformation their digital operating models.
The collaboration will see KPMG’s business consulting services combined with Google Cloud’s pre-trained machine learning models.
In turn, this combined offering will allow customers to tap into the benefits of transformative digital technologies, such as streamlining product development, without undergoing complex processes like building or training their own AI models.

“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.”
As part of the deal, KPMG has committed to creating a portfolio of industry solutions on the Google Cloud Platform that will be used to aid the company’s clients across the financial services, insurance, healthcare, manufacturing and retail industries, amongst others.
“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,” says 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.”
