We have released a summary of our
detailed review of data analytics consulting M&A and investor trends for
owners of businesses across the knowledge economy.
At the core of the Fourth Industrial
Revolution is the fusion of big data, advanced analytics and new physical
technologies. The key to business success in the new digital age is no longer
being able to simply use data to measure current and past performance. It is
being able to make predictions about the future and quickly prescribe
recommended strategies that can enrich decision making.
From a delivery model perspective, there is pressure on knowledge-intensive services firms to enhance their consulting offering with new data analytics solutions. This same pressure is being felt by consulting firms’ clients, who look to their advisers for assistance in innovating and realizing competitive advantages from new data analytics tools. Across the space in 2018, we found that buyers focused on acquisition targets with proprietary platforms, leverageable IP and managed services solutions.
