Luxembourg, Luxembourg – {23 October 2018} – KPMG announced today that it has received a leader ranking among enterprise insights service providers in The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Insights Service Providers, Q3 2018.

October 23, 2018

Noted among four service providers standing out as “clear leaders”, KPMG is among those who deliver “comprehensive data and analytics services, effective insights-to-execution support and impressive partner ecosystems” and remains among those that represent “the top choices for strategic enterprise insights services partners”, the report’s authors state.

Said Dr. Thomas Erwin, Global Head of KPMG Lighthouse Data-driven Technologies: “Forrester’s recognition of us as a Leader among insights service provider is a major achievement for the Global Lighthouse Center of Excellence. We believe it is a testament to our ability to deliver clients market-leading, data-driven services and solutions rich in trusted insights and a path to successful execution.”

Frauke Oddone, Head of Markets, reinforces: “Our recently announced strategic collaboration with Lighthouse Germany reflects our commitment to keeping Luxembourg at the forefront of innovation. We recognise that collaboration and openness are central to keeping up Luxembourg’s momentum in innovation, and we are confident that Lighthouse Germany, with its leading capabilities in artificial intelligence, machine learning, and other technologies, will only fuel this momentum. Trusted, impactful relationships like this one are not just happening in distant places, but very much in Luxembourg.”

Vincent Köller, KPMG Luxembourg Head of Management Consulting and overseeing KPMG Lighthouse for Luxembourg further explains: “This award is truly encouraging as a recognition of our expertise and of how we are helping to translate new technologies into trusted tools to build on quality and security: digitisation you can trust. More and more clients are realising that artificial intelligence is an unmissable opportunity. However, AI is not magic—it takes skills, knowledge, and experience, along with a holistic approach to AI’s challenges, to harness its exciting capabilities, and this award shows that our efforts to pursue outstanding digital services in this area are industry-leading.”  

Additional Findings from the Forrester report:

  • “KPMG’s strategy is to partner rather than invest heavily in technology. It sees itself focusing on the business context, including the data.”
  • “With an eye beyond the business problem at hand, KPMG makes cultivating an insights-driven culture an explicit element of an engagement,”
  • “Illustrating that commitment, [and] customer references confirm KPMG’s role in change management across organizations – both in discussions to bring executives and stakeholders onboard and in training on new tools and processes. Customers are happy with the results, reportedly achieving desired outcomes and exceeding expectations.”
  • “KPMG has integrated three practices — integrated intelligent automation, data and analytics, and AI — into its Lighthouse Centers of Excellence (CoEs) and established permanent operations in all major KPMG countries.
