PwC and Microsoft partner to kickstart India's digital transformation

12 Oct 16

PwC is a network of firms in 157 countries committed to delivering quality service in assurance, advisory and tax services. 

The global firm and Microsoft India have just announced a strategic alliance that aims to help the industry harness some of the core competencies of both firms.

Both companies also believe the partnership will empower the digital transformation of large and mid-sized organizations in India.

This will be done by leveraging Microsoft’s technology expertise and PwC’s strategy capabilities across sectors and competencies, including taxation, smart cities and digital India programs.

Depaak Kapoor, chairman for PwC India network of entities, says the alliance of going to market with Microsoft is a step towards helping corporates in their technology enabled strategic transformation.

“For this, PwC will bring in its global expertise across industries and its strategy through execution capabilities to complement Microsoft's technological capabilities,” he says.

To start with, Microsoft’s productivity, personal computing solutions and intelligent cloud computing platforms will be complemented by PwC’s expertise across Strategy & Management Consulting, Digital Transformation, Technology Consulting, Big Data & Analytics, Cyber Security, Tax solutions and Compliance.

Bhaskar Pramanik, chairman for Microsoft India says the partnership with PwC is an exciting venture.

“They will be the first Advisory company who will be part of the Microsoft Cloud Services Program in India. Organisations and communities in India recognise the transformative power of technology and see it as an enabler to amplify the change that we all seek,” he explains.

“The combination of Microsoft’s cloud offerings and PwC’s reach across India, will accelerate cloud adoption in India and enable the digital transformation of businesses.”

PwC will extend Microsoft’s outreach to organisations of all sizes and across an array of industries to kick start their cloud and digital journey.
