PAF and KPMG Belgium enter into partnership
Zaventem / Darmstadt, January 19, 2021 - KPMG Belgium and the Process Analytics Factory (PAF) have entered into a partnership in the field of Business Intelligence (BI) & Analytics. The PAFnow-Tool complements the process mining offering of KPMG Advisory in Belgium to their clients.
The Microsoft technologies on which PAFnow is based, such as Power BI, are already being used across numerous KPMG Belgium projects. With PAFnow added to the portfolio, clients will benefit from the latest technological advancements in combination with the expertise of highly skilled KPMG Belgium professionals to help them improve their business processes and focus on data-driven decision making.
PAFnow’s prebuilt automated Process Mining capabilities will support KPMG Belgium in guiding their clients to design, monitor and optimize their business processes in a faster and more efficient way.
„We are very pleased to welcome KPMG Belgium, one of the Big Four, as a partner. We share a passion for making our customers' operations sustainably better. This requires a combination of technical and analytical expertise. KPMG Belgium has combined both for many years, making them an outstanding partner to PAF“, said Deborah Korb, Head of Strategic Alliances at PAF.
Usually, understanding the client’s business processes is a time-consuming activity. Integrating Process Mining in Power BI allows for the creation of a transparent overview of processes in a time-efficient manner. Furthermore, based on the analysis of data gathered from business applications, recommendations are made with respect to automation initiatives and the identified weak points can immediately be targeted by taking optimization measures. Following the implementation of those measures, process mining helps to report on KPIs and to continuously monitor the success of the measures taken.
„KPMG Belgium is proud to work with PAF on bringing a unique perspective on data, embedding actionable insights and business value. We see this partnership as paramount in helping businesses tap into the potential of their data ecosystems,“, adds Jorn De Neve, Head of Advisory KPMG in Belgium.
„Our joint efforts will allow us to expand the focus of business intelligence beyond reporting and dashboards to a broader capability that allows businesses to capitalize on their information, apply insight to respond to marketplace pressures and identify competitive advantages,“, Anthony Van de Ven, Partner, Technology Advisory, Head of Technology KPMG in Belgium.
