NEW YORK, N.Y. and SANTA CLARA, Calif. — July 26, 2023 — KPMG and ServiceNow (NYSE: NOW), today announced an expanded commitment to reimagine finance, supply chain, and procurement operations. The expanded partnership is part of a decade-long relationship that spans IT, HR, risk, cybersecurity, and environmental, social and governance (ESG), includes investment from both organizations to create new offerings that bring together AI, low-code capabilities, and deep industry knowledge and expertise.
ServiceNow estimates there is an $11 billion total addressable market by 2025 for sourcing and procurement operations as well as a multibillion-dollar opportunity for finance and supply chain solutions that bring together people, processes, data, and technology on one, simplified platform. While early engagement is critical for procurement to be able to influence spending and enable better decision making, many internal customers are frustrated by the lack of transparency and fragmentation across the procurement and approval processes.
The joint effort combines the breadth of experience and market‑leading industry insights of KPMG professionals with ServiceNow’s recently announced AI-powered Finance and Supply Chain Workflows that complements customers' existing procurement and supply chain systems, streamlines processes, and improves the employee experience while helping reduce costs and increasing efficiency. KPMG firms will use the new workflows to modernize their own processes and enhance the employee experience. Further, ServiceNow will leverage KPMG’s advisory expertise to optimize operations within its own finance organization.
“Combining the business expertise of KPMG’s people with ServiceNow’s technologies has already helped many organizations upgrade their digital footprints and stay ahead of the rapid pace of innovation,” said Bill Thomas, Global Chairman and CEO of KPMG. “Through this expanded alliance, we will help to deliver even more value and efficiency for clients—expediting their digital transformation journeys so they can achieve their business goals.”
“In this new era of our long-standing partnership with KPMG, we’re injecting a step-function increase in speed for our customers’ business architecture” said ServiceNow Chairman and CEO Bill McDermott. “Our co-developed AI-driven solutions will maximize productivity and profitability across finance, supply chain, and procurement operations.”
The expanded partnership will build on KPMG’s professional services expertise and ServiceNow’s Finance and Supply Chain Workflows in the following areas:
In recognition of KPMG’s work to deliver game-changing digital solutions that help to significantly transform organizations through outstanding value and impact, the company was named the 2023 and 2022 ServiceNow Worldwide Transformation Partner of the Year.
