IBM and Ey, a self described “multinational professional services firm” based in the UK, have revealed a multi-year partnership that will “help organizations accelerate digital transformation and improve client outcomes, a press release from both groups notes.
Essentially, they’ll work together to improve IBM’s blockchain and 5G technologies, among other things, as well as helping businesses to improve their offerings.
Speaking on the matter is Carmine Di Sibio, the Global Chairman and CEO of EY, who said:
“The EY-IBM Alliance is built on providing differentiating and transformational business value for clients. As organizations learn how to adapt to today’s new normal, leveraging the cloud, AI, 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.”
While both clients will be able to serve their clients better, they’ll also be improving their own technologies. Also speaking on the matter is Arvind Krishna, the CEO of IBM:
“Expanding this global alliance bolsters our ability to bring our hybrid cloud and AI capabilities to clients. The EY organization is a leader in driving large and complex client transformations. 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.”
