CHICAGO (Oct. 31, 2019) – The rise of emerging technologies, sweeping legislation, shifting demographics and changing consumer needs are forcing businesses to reinvent to stay ahead of disruption. Leading advisory, tax and assurance firm Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP (Baker Tilly) launches Baker Tilly Digital – bringing together Baker Tilly’s analytic and advanced technology service offerings under one capability suite to help clients navigate the complexities of digital transformation.

“Disruption is all around us and digital transformation is at the top of the list for many of our clients,” Baker Tilly CEO Alan D. Whitman said. “Keeping pace with new technology and making decisions today to shape tomorrow is never easy. We lean into and guide our clients through the complexities of digital disruption and the possibilities it brings.”

Baker Tilly Digital encompasses an evolving set of Baker Tilly’s most technical service offerings, such as analytics, cloud strategies, connected devices, emerging technologies, intelligent automation, digital enterprise and Digital | Labs – an incubator for the concepting through development of next-generation tools and services.

Through Baker Tilly Digital’s suite of capabilities, Baker Tilly successfully managed the digital deployment of advanced analytics at a Fortune 50 aerospace and defense equipment manufacturer. “Before, I was watching 52 planes manually, which took me all day,” the fleet analytics manager of the company said. “After implementing the solution, I’m able to actively monitor the health of more than 400 planes using only 50% of my day. That extra time frees me up to tackle other critical issues that need my attention.”
