Trailblazer: Big Data 50—Companies Driving Innovation in 2020

September 14, 2020 Rex Ahlstrom


History has proven that during a time of global crisis, as in the 2007-2008 financial crisis, organizations look to Mergers, Acquisitions and Divestitures to protect their future viability.


According to EY’s Global Capital Confidence Barometer1, more than half of executives globally are opting to transform through transactions and plan an acquisition in the next 12 months. These companies look to M&A&D to drive growth, cost synergies, differentiation and innovation. It’s no wonder. McKinsey & Company reported2 that companies that regularly and systematically pursue moderately sized M&A deliver better shareholder returns than companies that don’t.


At Syniti, we understand that data is at the heart of M&A&D. Whether you are buying, selling or merging—key valuation, integration and risk management depend on the critical movement and the unified view of data. Our industry-first knowledge-driven Syniti Knowledge Platform solution diminishes execution risk and manages dramatic changes to assets, inventory, product, vendor management and more. Our five-step M&A&D process guides data through the due diligence and deal examination phase; deal valuation and risk assessment; integration execution; measurement and development of deal synergies and post transaction integration.


For over 20 years, we’ve helped companies around the globe, across all industries, deliver successful M&A&D projects from Life Sciences to Transportation. Learn about our M&A data transformation at American Airlines
