WHY DATADILIGENCE

The value of data isn't an accounting exercise; it's an economic exercise.

As a principle, we believe that data - as an ecosystem - represents intrinsic value and competitive advantage.  But data is rarely validated or valued with the same rigour as other key commercial assets.

We aim to change this.

OUR INSIGHTS

DATA & AI
DUE DILIGENCE

For investors seeking the true value & potential of data assets

Increasingly, Information Memoranda make sweeping statements such as: 'proprietary AI-backed decision making' or 'advanced automation'.

 

Yet few investors have the in-house expertise to deeply interrogate the data ecosystems, datasets, and algorithms of target companies to determine reality and inform their pricing and value creation strategies.

We provide specialist data & AI due diligence and vendor data & AI due diligence to help investors and M&A advisors deep-dive into data assets and determine:

 

How effective is the target company at leveraging data and analytics to power its business and operational models?

DATA STRATEGY 

For companies wishing to realise the incrementally significant gains of maturing their data & AI approach,  processes & capabilities

Companies are amassing vast amounts of data - everyday.  But very few treat their data as a strategic asset.  

Working with senior leaders, we craft data & AI strategies that:

  1. target business problems to align with the overall business objectives and strategy,

  2. break down what is needed to solve the problem with data and analytics, and 

  3. design a roadmap for delivery, including the resourcing and investment required for success

What the data experts say

In December 2021, the 'Dean of Big Data' - Bill Schmarzo, kindly wrote the Foreword for our inaugural Year in Review - this is what he had to say:

"In the same way that oil was the fuel that drove economic growth in the 20th century, data will be the catalyst for economic growth in the 21st century. 

 

But data is unlike any asset that we have ever seen. Data never depletes, never wears out and the same data set can be used across an unlimited number of use cases to derive and drive new sources of quantifiable customer, product, and operational value...at zero marginal cost".
