A team of Microsoft Dynamics professionals from IT consultancy DXC Technology has joined EY Canada.

Over a dozen professionals across Toronto, Calgary, and Vancouver will join EY Canada. 

The Big Four accounting and consulting firm says the former DXC team will deepen its existing Microsoft Dynamics practice, which helps clients modernize and optimize their finance and operations functions, enterprise resource planning, and supply chain management.

EY US also concurrently announced the Americas Microsoft Dynamics team from DXC Technology would be joining its Microsoft services group.

“This team will work with Microsoft to continue to create new, innovative client experiences, giving them greater visibility and agility to support their decision making with robust analytics and AI-driven insights fuelled by Microsoft Dynamics,” said Charles Lamanna, corporate vice president, business applications & platform, Microsoft.
