Zurich, 2 October 2019 – LzLabs today announced it has signed an Alliance Agreement with KPMG UK, the professional services firm, to offer Advisory, Risk, Deal consultancy and other services to UK customers seeking to modernize legacy IT. The Alliance will enable KPMG and LzLabs to help businesses better understand, plan and deliver such projects, specifically positioning KPMG’s advisory capabilities and LzLabs Software Defined Mainframe® (SDM) as an integral path to mainframe modernization.
As organizations seek to integrate legacy applications with modern enterprise computing practices based on Linux and in the cloud, global advisory firms have an opportunity to guide and advise senior IT leaders in the development of appropriate technology strategies leading to business and technology simplification, cost and risk reduction whilst accelerating their digital transformations.
KPMG will advise on target architecture and transformation program design, full business case justification, sourcing, service and cloud integration strategies, risk analysis and due diligence with a focus on client value and return on investment.
Mark Cresswell, CEO of LzLabs, said: “This Alliance has emerged in response to the increasing demand, we have both seen, from organizations looking to modernize their core systems.”
Phil Crozier, Partner at KPMG UK, said: “The combination of LzLabs technology and KPMG’s advisory proposition allows us to unlock clients from legacy mainframe applications and data and accelerate their approach to digital transformation.”
