Digitisation & IT

All businesses are affected by new technologies and digital developments. Which of these developments are relevant to your business? How do you deal with it? For yourself and for your clients, employees and suppliers as well. Every day you can read about digital transformation and issues such as analytics, process mining, robotics, cloud, cybersecurity and privacy. How do you use these developments the proper way and where are your opportunities? In other words, how do you tackle digital transformation?

Having a digital strategy, derived from your business vision, showing the impact of new technologies on your business is key in this regard. Are you prepared, which opportunities and threats can you identify, how much does digitisation cost and, perhaps even more importantly, what does it bring in?


Your company's data may contain valuable control information. For instance, you could use the data from your sales, manufacturing, finance, procurement and HR departments to provide management reports and optimise your processes. We can help you with accessing internal and external data, applying various analytical tools, integrating analytics into work processes and setting up a dashboard for (management) reporting.

Process mining

Process mining maps the real and actual process progress based on system data from work flows.  A process may be anything: processing complaints, handling invoices, and tax returns or time records. With process mining, for instance, the causes of long process lead times, dissatisfied clients and obsolete stocks can be revealed in a clear manner. It is often used for efficiency, compliance and control of business processes.


In Robotic Process Automation (RPA), software robots are used in administrative processes to take over repetitive and monotonous work. More time is made available to employees to spend on quality and more challenging work. Therefore, you might call RPA a 'virtual workforce'. In addition, RPA may also be used for error-prone repetitive work. Once a robot is properly programmed, it will not make any mistakes. Processes are performed better, cheaper and faster.

IT integration

In many enterprises, numerous applications are used differently for the same purpose, sometimes with different (incorrect) input. As a result, data is everywhere and administrations and registrations differ from each other. This may lead to inefficiency and error-sensitivity, and makes it difficult to obtain clear and unambiguous reports. In addition, more and more data is being generated by all kinds of automation and digitisation initiatives. Often, the problem here is that this data is 'locked' in an application and, therefore, unavailable to others. Looking into good IT integration in order to get the most out of all this data is only gaining importance.

IT Governance & IT Audit

Management of IT risks deserves the attention of senior management. Identifying and managing the risks requires an appropriate maturity level in IT Governance. Depending on the industry in which your company operates, your clients and any supervisors also set requirements for IT Governance. By carrying out an IT audit, an IT Governance framework is established on the basis of a risk analysis and the current level of control measures is tested. Where necessary, concrete recommendations are given for optimisation.


Continuity of business processes is highly dependent on access to IT systems through the Internet. However, unlocking systems via the Internet brings about cybersecurity risks. Cybersecurity incidents that may have far-reaching economic consequences for your company, but also for your clients, occur each day.  These consequences may affect your company's entire ecosystem. Management of cybersecurity is a prerequisite for this continuity. Being in control of your cybersecurity risks is increasingly becoming a prerequisite for participation in the digital society.

Privacy protection

If you process personal data, you are obliged to guarantee the privacy of the persons concerned. Do you know which privacy regulations and principles your data processing must comply with? And are you familiar with the risks involved in data processing? Data processing operations set up in accordance with Privacy by Design guarantee in advance that you comply with the privacy rules. This way, you will not face any surprises, investments will be protected and your stakeholders may rely on your systems.

Mazars can help you

The specialists at Mazars can help you in all areas of digitisation & IT, including the creation of a strategy or your digital transformation process. This way, we can help you identify the potential in the field of RPA by means of a pilot. After the successful completion of a pilot, we can fully guide you with a further RPA roll-out within your company. In addition, we help companies gain insight into their current and advised IT landscape and, where required, we advise them to integrate systems in order to ultimately maximise the value of all the available data. We also support companies in the field of cybersecurity and privacy protection.
