EY have a solid reputation as winners that dates back several years.

EY has announced yet another remarkable trio of wins at the 2020 Microsoft Global Partner of the Year Awards: Global Advisory Services Partner of the Year, Global Energy Partner of the Year and Global Financial Services Partner of the Year. Recognised as one of the top Microsoft partners across the globe, EY was awarded for excellence in innovation and implementation support of customer solutions based on Microsoft technology.

The Microsoft Global Partner of the Year Awards recognised Microsoft partners that have developed and provided exceptional Microsoft-based solutions during the past year. Awards were classified in several categories, with honorees chosen from a set of more than 3,300 submitted nominations from more than 100 countries worldwide.

Frank Mwiti, EY Eastern Africa Markets Leader, says, “We are thrilled and honoured to be recognised as the recipient of three noteworthy 2020 Microsoft Global Partner of the Year Awards across our EY Consulting Services, Financial Services and Energy sectors. This validates EY’s broad functional and industry competencies. Indeed, here in East Africa, our EY teams continue to collaborate with Microsoft to develop and deliver innovative solutions that solve complex challenges, drive efficiency and risk reduction across various sectors. Additionally, these Awards confirm EY’s excellence supporting our client’s digital transformation based on Microsoft technology.”

Robert Nyamu, EY Technology Consulting Partner, adds that “This recognition by Microsoft validates EY’s technical depth and competence providing valuable technology consulting solutions, using Microsoft technologies such as Azure cloud services. This recognition also confirms EY teams’ ability to successfully leverage multiple Microsoft solutions to help accelerate clients’ digital transformations and help create new business value.”

The Global Advisory Services Partner of the Year Award recognised EY teams’ global capabilities that provide valuable consulting and advisory services and solutions, using Microsoft technologies, innovation, and robust skills to help clients digitally transform. This recognition also showcases EY teams’ ability to successfully leverage multiple Microsoft solutions, such as Azure, to deploy solutions powered by Microsoft.

“For example,” notes Frank, “the EY Global Financial Crime platform, a scalable and secure solution developed with Microsoft, helps modernise banks’ financial crime operations. Hosted on Azure, the platform of solutions helps banks of all sizes comply with the financial sector’s enhanced regulatory and security demands, while helping improve risk management effectiveness, increase automation and reduce client onboarding time.”

Of note, the award highlighted EY teams’ industry-leading global tax and audit Azure-based platforms, and specifically the EY Global Tax Platform (GTP), an automated cloud-enabled data management platform for enterprises to transform tax digitally. GTP drives industry-wide innovation and disrupting the tax and finance market at speed, bringing together EY intellectual property and capabilities paired with Azure. In doing so, the platform seamlessly and quickly transforms tax and finance functions to reduce risk, help enable cost-efficient tax operations and provide increased value through data reuse, analytics, visualisations and more.

In addition, the Global Energy Partner of the Year Award recognised extensive EY industry insights, combined with Microsoft’s powerful cloud technologies, which led to the development of two innovative digital energy solutions: EY Digital Energy Enablement Platform (EY DEEP) and EY UtilityWave. Both were designed to help energy companies improve performance, gain efficiencies and support better decision-making by helping enable data-driven decisions that allow them to thrive in this new energy-efficient world.

EY DEEP digitally integrates vital processes across the oil and gas value chain – including sophisticated well engineering, production and maintenance optimisation, supply chain management and financial modelling – with a common data model to allow a broad extension of the platform across the organisation. EY UtilityWave is an Internet of Things (IoT) and data platform that provides utility companies with the capabilities needed to address the biggest challenges of a digitised, dynamic energy system, in one business-focused platform.

Lastly, the Global Financial Services Partner of the Year Award highlighted innovative services and solutions built on Microsoft technology, specially designed for clients in the financial services sector. The award recognised the EY Global Financial Crime platform, a scalable and secure solution developed with Microsoft, to help modernise banks’ financial crime operations. Hosted on Azure, the platform of solutions helps banks of all sizes comply with the financial sector’s enhanced regulatory and security demands, while helping improve risk management effectiveness, increase automation and reduce client onboarding time.

The EY and Microsoft alliance combines EY’s insights and experience in disruptive industry trends, new business models and evolving processes with Microsoft’s scalable, enterprise cloud platform and digital technologies. This also makes 14, the number of awards EY and Microsoft have so far won in partnership. This is on top of their 13 awards so far garnered in 2020 alone with various partners.
