NEW YORK, July 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- KPMG LLP, the audit, tax and advisory firm, has been cited as a category leader in the third quarter 2012 Forrester Wave™ "Business Technology Transformation" report.
"Technology is a key driver for business transformation," said Steve Lis, partner and leader of KPMG LLP's Management Consulting group. "Businesses are looking to transform their business models and operations to compete more strategically as they respond to fundamental changes in economic conditions and customer needs. It has become even more critical to view technology implementation through a 'business first' lens. This is in line with what we're seeing in the marketplace and why we're very pleased to be recognized by Forrester as a leader in this strategically significant space."
KPMG's business first approach focuses on helping clients understand the information needed to outperform their peers, better engage with their clients and manage risk and uncertainty. In addition to helping navigate complex technology purchasing and vendor relationships, KPMG helps clients leverage their investments while effectively migrating to emerging technologies, often in a budget-constrained environment.
Increasingly the focus is on helping organizations manage exponentially growing amounts of data, converting the data into insights and leveraging the cloud and SaaS-based applications to increase flexibility. This approach helps clients anticipate and adapt to change, optimize processes, achieve scale and consistency, improve productivity, and enhance risk management.
This business integrator role, as opposed to a historical systems integrator, moves beyond technology enablement, to technology-empowerment, including capabilities increasingly in demand in today's complex environment.
