WHAT IS TECH-LED M&A?

Tech-led M&A occurs when companies apply technology to the strategy, diligence, execution and integration of a corporate merger or acquisition.

Whether a traditional or digital deal, applying tools like analytics and applied intelligence allows humans to take the art of M&A to the level of science. From better insights to faster integration, tech-led M&A can improve efficiencies and increase the value derived from deals.

OUR APPROACH TO TECH-LED M&A

Tech-led M&A looks closely at the way digital can be applied to the deal process—and beyond.

PRE-DEAL

Historically, M&A deal teams have struggled with the reams of information they must sort through for everything from due diligence to deal execution. By applying both a business strategy and a technology lens to the process of prospect identification and deal-making, firms can be more strategic in their acquisitions. Using applied intelligence to supplement human intelligence, analytics to identify key trends and patterns, and a host of other technologies, leads to better insights faster.

POST-DEAL

In a digital world, speed matters. For a corporate event to be truly successful, post-deal integration of cultures, processes and data requires the rapid-fire outcomes and cost efficiencies technology brings. The potential gains of a deal should not be squandered because of inefficiencies or slow manual processes. Applying technology helps companies run a smoother process and extract more value from its M&A.
