Our Technology Partner
PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), the #1 world leader in auditing and consulting, is experiencing strong growth in France and Northern Africa.
To support business expansion, significant investment in IT infrastructure transformation is required, but digital performance must be matched by financial efficiency. How can they ensure that delivering on customers’ expectations is done in a controlled and profitable way?
Capture all the costs of fragmented and heterogeneous technological resources to define their true IT infrastructure cost of ownership (TCO)
Analyze the differences in overall consumption and match the economic value of each solution with its actual use through a rule-based system that aligns with the KP-One meta-model
Calculate the opportunity value at target and obtain the consumption for the intended usage
Provide alternative scenarios like mobility service billing control; hosted infrastructure migration of new applications to cloud hybrid Data Center (with reservations avoidance by controlling their consumption in real life); and improvement of CSR commitments in kW / CO2 consumption on IT assets
Anticipate technological obsolescence scenarios to avoid the related costs and risks
The KP-One platform offers key indicators and scenarios for PwC to ensure they are reconciling the value of digital investment by the business.
PwC France and Northern Africa activities were able to achieve immediate savings through a reduction of 15% of their IT hosting costs. Thanks to the automated predictable analysis changing consumption by hybridization of the Cloud, PwC managed to get their investments under control and agreed on a target with their Cloud & Service Provider supplier better adapted by 53%, with a 27% reduction of their carbon footprint.
"Before KP-One, the daily operations of the IT department did not have a system that allowed them to track in real time the economic impact of changes, transformations or any other development expected by the business lines of the company. KP-One makes it possible to immediately measure the economic impact of the activities of the IT department to meet the business objectives. Thus, we obtain the standard cost of each operation and it is now easy to predict the costs based on the volumes of IT services consumed or to be consumed by the business lines." - Laurent Lévêque, PwC Chief Financial IT Controller
