Focusing on the development of low-code technology and aligned with KPMG's national and international alliances, this KPMG technology centre already has around 30 employees who will be directly involved in the development of international projects for the national market and international markets such as the United States, France and the Middle East.
Low-code technology has revolutionised the way and speed with which digital applications and experiences are developed. Not only does it simplify the process, but it also optimises it, i.e. it makes it possible to develop complex and secure business applications and solutions in an agile and faster way compared to traditional development. Low-code is one of several services offered by KPMG Portugal, which has a team of around 300 employees dedicated to the development and application of its technological offer.
With this new Technology Hub in Évora, KPMG Portugal now has four offices across the country: in Lisbon (Picoas and Miraflores), Porto and Évora.
