M&A and Analytics Infographic by Deloitte

  1. 1. Jan Feb Mar Apr May Jun Jul Aug Sep Nov Oct Dec Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet. 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 $100,000 001 002 003 004 005 While there’s plenty of talk about the growing role that data analytics is playing in mergers and acquisitions, we wanted to assess how important it is-from the perspective of corporate leaders.

One thing is clear: Analytics is already playing a role, and for most, they’re just getting started.
