EY is collaborating with Microsoft to provide a new analytics solution called Workplace Insights. The solution combines the Microsoft Workplace Analytics platform with EY services consulting and data analytics.

The platform analyzes an organization’s existing communication and collaboration patterns – such as email and calendar metadata – and incorporates data from other enterprise systems. EY interprets the outputs to help develop actionable insights and recommendations.

The capability can be applied across business scenarios that include organizational transformation, mergers and acquisitions and real estate planning, according to the companies.
