Accounting services firm Ernst & Young (EY) and tech giant IBM has expanded their global alliance to help organizations accelerate digital transformation and improve client outcomes.
The global multi-year alliance will combine IBM’s technology consulting services with EY’s strategy and business consulting capabilities. IBM and EY professionals will focus on helping clients modernize and transform their businesses. Their goal is to provide clients with specialized hybrid cloud functionalities including Red Hat OpenShift, as well as IBM Watson, IBM Blockchain, 5G and edge computing technologies.
“Expanding this global alliance bolsters our ability to bring our hybrid cloud and AI capabilities to clients,” said Arvind Krishna, IBM Chief Executive Officer. “The EY organization is a leader in driving large and complex client transformations. Combining EY teams’ breadth of industry and regulatory knowledge, technology capabilities and longstanding strategy and business consulting leadership, with IBM’s powerful technology and Red Hat OpenShift’s open hybrid cloud portfolio, will play a key role in accelerating our clients’ journeys to the cloud.”
The expanded collaboration with IBM is a key component of the EY commitment to growing and strengthening its diversified, connected and intelligent ecosystem of alliances. It also marks EY professionals’ access to the IBM public cloud ecosystem.
“The EY-IBM Alliance is built on providing differentiating and transformational business value for clients,” said Carmine Di Sibio, EY Global Chairman and CEO. “As organizations learn how to adapt to today’s new normal, leveraging the cloud, AI, analytics and other technologies have become increasingly important. IBM is a proven leader in hybrid cloud and AI, and together we’re developing innovative solutions to help provide the sustainability and resiliency that assist clients to operate and lead today, and in the years to come, as they reframe their future amidst an unpredictable and rapidly evolving environment.”
