EY and IBM expand global alliance

EY and IBM have announced a global, multi-year alliance designed to help organisations accelerate digital transformation, including leveraging the hybrid cloud capabilities of Red Hat OpenShift, as well as IBM Watson, blockchain, 5G and edge technologies.

Carmine Di Sibio, EY global chairman and chief executive, commented: "As organisations learn how to adapt to today's new normal, leveraging the cloud, artificial intelligence, 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."

EY and IBM teams will provide joint consulting and systems integration capabilities to help deliver long-term value to clients. The alliance will also continue to support multiple functional areas, like mergers and acquisitions, finance, HR, legal, tax, risk and compliance, supply chain and asset management, to assist clients in business and workforce transformations.

IBM chief executive Arvind Krishna added: "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 deal also includes expanded access for EY staff to the IBM public cloud ecosystem. The new initiative supports global system integrators and independent software vendors to help their clients modernise and transform mission-critical workloads with RedHat OpenShift for any cloud environment, including IBM public cloud.
