What EY can do for you

When considering digital transformation, you need a team that understands all aspects of business and technology change. EY offers clients a new and simple approach to transformation — providing a combination of EY’s trusted industry experience and business ingenuity with Microsoft’s transformative cloud offerings. 

As organisations look to accelerate digital transformation, EY capabilities help clients realise long-term value through end-to-end, Microsoft-powered solutions with Dynamics 365, Microsoft 365, Power Platform and Azure. 

Using Microsoft technologies, we help businesses to improve collaboration across departments and geographies, reduce complexity, and empower end users to deliver operational excellence and exceptional customer experiences. 

Our consultants facilitate innovation based on our strengths in technologies, such as business intelligence, automation, business application development, artificial intelligence (AI), data analytics and cybersecurity.

By leveraging these technologies, clients can capitalise on new opportunities and assess and manage risk to deliver responsible growth through digital transformation. 

Our multidisciplinary team helps to fulfil regulatory requirements, keep investors informed and meet stakeholder needs.

From start-ups to multinationals, EY helps clients meet their most pressing challenges through Microsoft technologies.
