Time: 1:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time

Duration: 1 hour


Mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures are complicated and fraught with risk. The explosive growth in unstructured data as well as the proliferation of global data privacy and data protection regulations continue to compound the risk associated with inadequately managed sources of enterprise data. The resultant effect has complicated the process for all involved in these transactions.

This webinar will address how proper diligence around unstructured data can reduce transaction friction and mitigate risk, while also potentially shortening the transition period. With a better understanding of unstructured data, the enterprise can identify and address immediate vulnerabilities as well as spot opportunities to increase long-term business value. In the case of divestiture, the business can better control what data stays and what goes, minimizing the risk of losing sensitive and valuable information. Learn how organizational trends are shaping the opportunities/challenges associated with data use and management, and how emerging technologies are enabling organizations to streamline M&A transactions on all sides of the deal.
