When companies decide to start securing all internal file sharing, it may seem like a confusing and even daunting task. How can something be shareable and public while also staying secure and private? It is quite a paradox.There are various kinds of platforms when it comes to secure file sharing. Most of them require passwords to transfer or access sensitive files. But if a business needs even more protection for classified documents, a data room might be a good option. Data rooms store data, provide workspaces, and are the most secure file sharing system.

EY announces alliance with Alteryx to help accelerate digital transformation through analytics automation

EY | November 28, 2022

The EY organization today announces an alliance between Alteryx, one of the leaders in analytics automation, and Ernst & Young LLP (EY US), to help organizations unlock the power of data through automation and digital transformation. Most organizations face inefficiencies and increased costs when carrying out day-to-day business and back-office operations. As they undergo digital transformation efforts, they tend to devote more time to data manipulation than to data analysis. As a result, revisiting and updating their existing technologies to improve data literacy throughout the organization becomes critical to achieve their transformation goals. The EY–Alteryx Alliance will help clients across various sectors optimize data-driven processes by generating valuable insights to deliver faster, better business outcomes to achieve efficiency in business operations. The alliance leverages the highly intuitive and easy-to-learn data analytics automation platform of Alteryx along with the EY organization's digital transformation capabilities across Strategy and Transactions, Consulting and Tax. The Alteryx platform combines three key pillars of automation and digital transformation — data, processes and people — to help enable data democratization, business process automation and people upskilling. Users are then better able to unlock the value of advanced analytics using its user-friendly platform, analyze a wide range of data from multiple sources and deliver business insights to answer business questions more efficiently. Among other strengths, EY US is well-known among clients and in the market for its consulting capabilities. With more than 700 certified implementers of Alteryx across service lines and countries, EY US teams have built innovative, proprietary solutions that are supported by Alteryx. Through the EY–Alteryx Alliance, clients gain access to and counsel from the right technology and consulting talent for data exploration, transformation and analysis. Brian May, EY Americas Alliance and Managed Services Leader, says: "This collaboration combines advanced technology and consulting capabilities for data exploration and analysis across key functional areas including tax, finance, human resources, supply chain, internal audit and IT. Activating and accelerating rapid digital transformation is paramount in helping organizations efficiently navigate today's evolving business landscape." Barb Huelskamp, Alteryx SVP of Channel Sales, says: "By aligning the EY organization's rich heritage of experience with the Alteryx analytics automation platform, we provide incremental value for key customer segments across the office of finance, human resources, supply chain and more. Our shared objective helps organizations optimize analytics to help drive large-scale business transformations." About EY EY exists to build a better working world, helping to create long-term value for clients, people and society and build trust in the capital markets.
