Know as much as you can. As fast as you can. The standoff between scrutiny and speed has always been at the heart of M&A. In the race to steer the tightest line between them, what edge is new technology delivering? Find out in this new report from Harvard Business Review Analytic Services, sponsored by Datasite.

Though M&A processes have evolved much in recent years, the desired outcomes remain the same. Technology can automate time-hungry tasks, and enable deeper analysis of data. But the power to do more poses a new question: how best to use this greater capacity?

This report examines what technology can do for M&A, and what it can’t – so that dealmakers can focus more of their efforts on that.

Highlights include:
