How we work with Microsoft

We were the first professional services firm to establish a global strategic alliance with Microsoft based on business transformation. We can help our clients understand the benefits of Microsoft to their business and ultimately if chosen, we can help our clients use it to gain maximum value and achieve sustainable change. We have business insight and industry knowledge others don’t have, which combined with our certified professionals means that we deliver the best possible answer for our clients.

In the case of Microsoft, we’re working with Microsoft to increase the number of certified professionals we have to deliver a one-stop-shop for clients. We have developed industry specific transformational solutions that we are currently delivering for companies.

Whether it is transforming back office and operations through using Dynamics AX, delivering operational improvement through our predictive maintenance app or driving cloud infrastructure transformation through replatforming of applications onto Azure, we work hand in hand with Microsoft to deliver sustainable change and clear, measurable outcomes.

“Our deep knowledge of good practice processes, our independence from any software vendor and our focus on delivering the business transformation rather than ‘just’ the systems implementation have enabled us to become a strategic implementation partner for Microsoft.

In Dynamics, O365 and Azure we are co-developing some really interesting offerings, which are quite different from what’s available elsewhere in the marketplace. For example, we’re looking at digital ways to manage relationships with patients in the health sector, and helping universities use the same technology to manage the ‘student journey’.

"From July 2015, the scope of the alliance has been expanded to include the rest of the Microsoft stack including transformational work on digital and mobile solutions enabled by the Microsoft cloud, Office 365, and Power BI. Sometimes clients are quite surprised to find PwC doing work like this, but it’s a good surprise because they know they can trust us to find the right answer. They know we can make it work.”
