EY has been named an ALM Intelligence Vanguard leader for Data Management Consulting. EY was cited for its use of data and technology to solve client business problems by focusing on the role of analytics to drive performance improvement.

EY’s Vanguard status is based on its strength in weaving its array of tools and accelerators into the data management consulting process to streamline the identification of crucial patterns, gaps and recommendations with a specific focus on data security, compliance and quality. According to the report, Competitive Landscape Analysis: Data Management Consulting, this approach aids clients in quickly gaining an understanding of how mature their data management practices are and how they stack up against others in their industry.

Chris Mazzei, EY Global Chief Analytics Officer and Emerging Technology Leader, says:

“We are proud to be recognized by ALM as a leader in driving data and analytics into every facet of our clients’ businesses. We help our clients capitalize on the opportunities that deliver better outcomes to grow, optimize and protect their businesses — now and in the future. To do so, EY is continuing to invest in this area by embedding analytics capabilities in all of its services and delivering innovative offerings that address big, complex issues.”

The report noted that EY has built an extensive portfolio of tools and accelerators, with most used during analytics engagements and some that are highly applicable to data management consulting initiatives — such as EY’s EY3D accelerator, which analyzes multiple years of transaction and master file data to uncover patterns, errors and methods to improve data control and processes. This accelerator, along with EY’s portfolio of data security and compliance offerings, which include security transformation and cyber threat management, place EY as a top competitor in data security and compliance advisory, ALM noted in the report. It also cited the EY Data and Analytics Interactive Tool, which measures a client’s data and analytics initiatives against responses from of hundreds of global executives. This tool was developed from a benchmark study conducted by EY and Forbes Insights.

Erin Hichman, Senior Analyst, ALM Intelligence, says:

“EY has grown considerably over the last few years and built an extensive portfolio of tools and accelerators. EY significantly invested in its data management and analytics capabilities, made several strategic acquisitions, increased its asset-based solutions and co-innovated with other companies. Its ‘best-in-class’ status in data security and compliance — and in helping clients apply those areas to data management — makes the firm a leader in advising businesses on decreasing risk associated with data management.”
