Connected Capital Technologies
Explore an integrated suite of technologies that bring deeper analysis and faster insights to enable better decision-making around your capital and transaction strategies through to execution. Welcome to the future of M&A.
Dealmaking in a big data world
M&A is a complex, challenging combination of the right capital and transaction strategy and effective deal execution to drive value. Getting it right could mean staying ahead of your competition. Get it wrong and you may fall behind.
The reality is that our increasingly data-saturated world is making getting it right harder still. The future of dealmaking means significantly more information needs to be captured, processed, analyzed and interpreted than ever before. Traditional means are no longer effective in delivering a competitive edge.
To unlock the power of this data, we are developing purpose-built M&A technologies and applications. We call them Connected Capital Technologies. Powered by leading technology including AI, automation and advanced analytics, the Connected Capital Technologies are tailored solutions that address the challenges of M&A, from origination to integration. They can be deployed either as an end-to-end suite or as individual applications.
Fueled by data. Powered by technology. Driven by people.
From growth strategy and portfolio reshaping to M&A, divestiture, post-merger integration and restructuring, the Connected Capital Technologies process massive volumes of internal and external structured and unstructured data. They enable EY professionals to help deliver actionable insights, at a faster pace and deeper level than before. The result can help you make better fact-based decisions to realize your M&A growth ambitions, to enable you to stay ahead. The Connected Capital Technologies span a range of applications, and here you can read more about our flagship investments.
Connected Capital Technologies to originate a winning M&A strategy
Deals are more competitive. Targets are harder to identify and even tougher to secure. How can technology help to set your strategy on the right journey toward realizing your growth ambitions through M&A?
As disruption continues to intensify, a traditional, linear approach to growth is not enough. The world is now built on ecosystems. Understanding your ecosystem, and those of your competitors, is critical to fast-tracking innovation. But many are challenged to build an effective approach.
EY Embryonic is a powerful, cloud-based platform that brings ecosystems to life by mapping the flow of funds and M&A transactions and visualizing the relationships between traditional and innovative companies. EY Embryonic provides you with fast insights so you can make fact-based decisions on where to invest to transform your business for a better tomorrow.
A well-planned business strategy that is focused on optimizing shareholder value starts with confidently setting aspirational, but achievable, targets and evaluating optional pathways to reach those goals. EY-Parthenon’s proprietary diagnostic framework the Full Potential Paradigm™ can set you up for success.
The Full Potential Paradigm™ is a deep, data-driven construct that helps you confidently set performance targets, prioritize investments, understand and drive market valuation, and mitigate risks.
Connected Capital Technologies to drive robust transaction execution and create deal value
Knowledge is power. From the volumes of information available on a deal, how can technology help you get the right insights at the right time at the right speed? To help you negotiate a deal, streamline processes and build better working deal teams who create value by skilfully managing the demands of the M&A deal life cycle.
We operate in the age of big data, which creates significant opportunities and poses tough challenges for business. Data that is misunderstood, misanalyzed or simply overlooked creates unmeasured risk and missed opportunity.
EY Transaction analytics offering includes data intelligence and visualization, advanced transaction analytics, social media analytics and benchmarking so that you can find greater clarity at improved speed among increasing complexity.
What if there was a way to help maximize both speed and value as well as enhance teaming across often siloed functional areas in a transaction so that your teams can execute faster, improve focus and make more informed transaction decisions? What if there was an integrated, single source of truth for transactions?
Well, now there is. Capital Edge is a secure web-based real-time data, analytics and collaboration platform, consisting of program management, financial and operations modules, that supports you throughout the transaction life cycle.
EY Diligence Edge is transforming the way EY performs transaction diligence. The platform:
- Can provide an outside-in view of a target company and its competitors by consolidating and analyzing a range of external information, including news, financial and social media data.
- Creates a “smart data room” by ingesting the hundreds or thousands of documents available, and then scanning them using an EY M&A-specific AI model supported by IBM Watson so EY transaction professionals can search for the pieces of information that are relevant to our clients on a deal.
- Presents findings back in ready-made and intuitive charts and dashboards, enabling clearer analysis and higher value client discussions.
Merger and acquisition activity has taxation implications. EY’s dedicated transaction tax professionals play a key role in taking care that tax is properly understood in the value of transactions and in protecting from the potential complications of an increasingly complex global tax landscape.
Managing this landscape means handling multiple deliverables from many jurisdictions worldwide. EY teams use specialized process automation applications to improve the quality and consistency of these deliverables through codifying our due diligence process and the part-automation of reports. This means EY professionals can continue doing what they do best ― providing better and more commercial insights and high-value transaction tax consultation.
