What EY Strategy and Transactions advanced analytics teams can do for you

CEOs are faced with complex challenges and significant opportunities in today’s data-saturated world. Executives need to navigate heightened competitive pressures, changing customer behaviors, accelerated technological transformation and a new war for talent, as well as increasing geopolitical concerns and a new regulatory landscape. In addition, they also need to address the commercial and operational aspects of critical climate challenges.

EY teams manage, curate and interrogate data at optimized speed to deliver intelligent insight-driven services that clients need today to help prepare them for a better tomorrow. From corporate strategy to capital allocation to M&A, EY Strategy and Transactions advanced analytics teams underpin and inform planning through to execution to help create bespoke, sector-driven value for EY clients. 

Making the right data-driven strategic decisions starts with a deep functional understanding of your sector and what data should be analyzed to help ensure you are asking the right questions of the right information to get to the right answers. We know that data can be misunderstood, mis-analyzed or simply overlooked, creating risk as well as missed opportunity. 

We harness technology, data and human insight to help improve your level of confidence in critical strategic, operational and commercial decisions. We help you better understand and mitigate risk — and maximize opportunities with sector-specific experience.

Five reasons why Strategy and Transactions advanced analytics help create value through connected intelligent insights

EY advanced analytics teams help find better answers to some of EY clients’ toughest questions — and sometimes questions they didn’t know they needed to ask themselves. These include:

  • Is my biggest issue the opportunity I can’t clearly see?
  • How can I improve my portfolio strategy, using all available data to identify over- and under-performing businesses?
  • How can advanced analytics help me enhance value creation and anticipate external market and internal operational trends?
  • How can I use analytics throughout the acquisition process to determine value, synergies and risks and ensure the deal delivers maximum value?
  • How can I best use data to maximize the number of buyers and the purchase price for assets I plan to divest?
  • How do I create an ESG and sustainability strategy and ambition that delivers competitive advantage while protecting value for stakeholders?
