Supporting Deals



Using technology to deliver more synergies, quickly

Throughout the deals journey, clients have some critical and often complex technology questions – we work client-side to provide you with pragmatic answers and guidance

Why technology is so important in deals

Data and technology will have value as a strategic asset and revenue generator

Stable, secure and resilient technology can deliver cyber-attack proof data and infrastructure

Technology could be a showstopper for fast integration.  Major issues can also affect value

Better technology can drive rapid ROI and delivery of planned financial synergies

Automated consolidation of financial data can produce key business information and insight quickly

Tactical use of intelligent automation at pace can drive efficiency, control and data quality

We have extensive experience of deploying a range of modern technologies to add value quickly to deals

Large scale data analytics

  • Data can be integrated and/or connected quickly to give real-time visibility of performance and synergies
  • Cloud-based data lakes such as Snowflake and Intelligent Automation techniques from UiPath can be used to capture and consolidate fragmented data fast
  • Data models can be organised and structured quickly – even across quite complicated and fragmented businesses
  • Modern data analytics tools can provide valuable insight quickly
  • Dashboard and BI tools such as PowerBI can be used to visualise key data in simple and easy to digest formats

Intelligent Automation

  • Intelligent Automation is a term that describes a holistic solution for digital transformation
  • Mainly based on business process management (BPM) it is used to orchestrate users, tasks, systems and software robots (RPA) to replicate and automate even complex processes
