KPMG Capital CEO Mark Toon discusses corporate perspectives on big data

That global accountancy giant KPMG should be interested in data is not, perhaps, surprising. That KPMG would use its own money to “invest in, partner with and acquire organisations that specialise in data and analytics tools and assets” was less immediately obvious to me. But that, according to KPMG global lead for data and analytics Mark Toon, is exactly what KPMG Capital was set up to do last year.

Mark is CEO of the new investment fund and joined me this week for a podcast to discuss some of the data-based issues currently facing KPMG and its clients.

The new firm commissioned a survey last summer, interviewing 144 CFOs and CIOs from big multinationals (with revenues above $1billion). This survey (PDF) was published last month, and offers a useful starting point for many of the topics Mark and I explore.
