Leveraging Cognitive Search & Analytics for Successful Mergers and Acquisitions
The success of a merger can be greatly enhanced when business processes are integrated and information is seamlessly unified
Mergers and acquisitions provide one avenue for organizations to grow via synergistic gains, strategic positioning and diversification. Even with an abundance of M&A activity, research shows that mergers are prone to fail at the business process and information integration levels—before the ink has even dried. The success of a merger can be greatly enhanced when business processes are integrated and information is seamlessly unified by gathering it from both organizations, analyzing it, establishing clusters of semantically similar information, and finding common patterns. Cognitive Search & Analytics Platforms provide the necessary capabilities to accomplish all of this, thereby helping facilitate merger and acquisition initiatives and significantly increasing the odds of success.
