NEW YORK, May 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- KPMG LLP, the U.S. audit, tax and advisory firm, has received the inaugural "Sales Partner of the Year" award from ServiceNow, the enterprise IT cloud company.
ServiceNow selected KPMG from among its alliance partners for the firm's demonstrated commitment to growing opportunities across the globe and for providing leading services to clients for IT Service Management (ITSM) solutions.
ServiceNow said KPMG adds significant value to client conversations, allowing ServiceNow to elevate its client opportunities from technology discussions to broader, more holistic IT transformation conversations. The strategic alliance of ServiceNow and KPMG enhances delivery of comprehensive ITSM transformation projects enabled by a leading cloud-based ITSM technology platform.
KPMG's Global Cloud Enablement Leader Rick Wright said the KPMG and ServiceNow alliance has created a unique opportunity to deliver a tailored solution in an area where many clients have cause for concern. By leveraging KPMG's global reach and industry-leading ITSM transformation capabilities, the alliance go-to-market mantra has become "let us help transform the business of IT for you."
"This relationship is generating business process redesigns in tandem with Cloud adoption for the full potential of the ITSM solution," said Wright, the sponsoring principal on the KPMG and ServiceNow alliance. "In many cases, we're taking work away from competitors, simply because our cross-functional integrated approach, coupled with our long-standing experience helping large, complex global organizations, proves that we can successfully deliver a holistic solution to meet any client's needs," he said.
As a result, these integrated solutions enabled by a cloud-based ITSM platform have produced transformational benefits, allowed companies to become more agile in the market, leveraged business opportunities, and facilitated cost-reduction measures for clients that have benefitted from the KPMG and ServiceNow alliance.
"This award recognizes the power of the KPMG alliance strategy," said KPMG Alliance Leader S. Singh Mecker. "Together with ServiceNow, we're helping some of the world's leading global enterprises with holistic processes and technology solutions for their complex ITSM challenges and we are proud to be acknowledged for our work with them."
