Presented by: Simon Pfister


In a business world where the only constant is change mergers & acquisitions present one of the greatest changes of all. The integration of two companies is wrought with uncertainty and endless challenges. Over the past decades companies have amassed greater and greater quantities of data, often with little to no governance, which only adds to the trials of bringing the organizations together. This presentation will look at one such integration, the approach, the obstacles, the lessons learned and the value added by the Business and Data Analysts.
