Efficient data transfer between buyer and seller is critical to a successful transaction. Leveraging advanced technologies and our proven methodology, DataMAAP assists organizations by using AI during M&A to facilitate and streamline the data transfer process.

Introducing DataMAAP

The success of an M&A transaction depends on many things. The data transfer between buyer and seller is one of them. Data ownership is often scattered across multiple functions, locations, and platforms and this creates disputes, delays, and disconnects as stakeholders struggle with competing versions of the truth. With the growing volumes of corporate data there are real difficulties in understanding and tracking decisions about content. When this data contains sensitive materials, the transfer approvals and separation workflows take on even more significance.

DataMAAP allows you to get ahead of these challenges. An intelligent platform designed to assist you as you scope, plan, manage risk, execute, and track organizational asset transfers during a transaction. DataMAAP empowers organizations to easily manage and report on transaction asset/data transfers and to create and manage workflows to segregate commingled data stores. It applies machine learning, AI, and a codified methodology to accelerate business data scoping, segregation, transfer, and integration, including a transition service agreement (TSA) self-service function to help reduce stranded costs and risk.

Client stories

A prescription for data separation at a pharmaceutical company

A global pharmaceutical company announced a divestiture agreement. The global nature and duration of transition service agreement (TSA) exits meant the default approach—using manual processes to track the data migration of thousands of records—lacked sufficient governance and robust data tracking mechanisms.

The company deployed DataMAAP to facilitate the transfer of electronic and physical data. Our solution assisted the company to establish consistent workflows for data transfer approvals in alignment with TSA exits, obtain acknowledgement and highlight disputes, reduced manual mechanisms and ad-hoc approvals, and streamlined the data transfers process.
