Transaction analytics

We help you unlock the insights of big data to drive transaction and capital strategy decisions at speed and scale.

What EY can do for you 

Businesses around the world are collecting unprecedented amounts of data, structured and unstructured, in volumes and speeds unimaginable just a decade ago. Companies that can harness that data and turn it into actionable insights in today’s increasingly complex M&A environment gain a competitive edge in deal-making.

Our transaction analytics service offer deeper insights, earlier, and at key points throughout the transaction life cycle and as part of setting the capital strategy, identifying and unlocking value in ways that were impossible just a few years ago. Our cognitive enablers and accelerators bring the exponential power of analytics, automation and machine intelligence to M&A transactions and capital decision-making, helping to highlight issues, opportunities and challenges. And because no two companies or deals are ever alike, we offer a customizable approach.

Whether it comes to accelerating transaction value, de-risking deals, identifying potential acquisition targets, and driving maximum benefit from divestments, EY’s transaction analytics service provide insights that give you greater clarity at optimized speed to help you maximize deal value.
