Akaibu and Haystac Partner to Leverage Legacy Archive Assets

“Due Diligence Readiness” Increases Valuation Potential for Acquisitions

Fort Worth, Texas (PRWEB) December 18, 2012

Akaibu, Inc., a leading vendor in Archive Migration solutions and Haystac LLC, an expert in Governance, Risk Management and Compliance (GRC) have partnered to deliver a unique response to the lack of organizational leverage of valuable archived email content.

A vast amount of corporate intelligence is hidden within archives. Making the appropriate associations between individual emails and attached content can be critical to transitional corporate decisions such as acquisitions. Making the connections between various contacts, documents, forms, and other electronic communication provides logic to a wide variety of business dealings, especially mergers and acquisitions.

“Mergers and acquisitions create a unique IT and business challenge when one considers the number of companies, small to large, using archiving technology.” said Mary Kay Roberto, CEO of Akaibu. “Not only do these companies potentially need to integrate disparate archiving technologies when involved in M&A activities but in many cases, content such as agreements and contracts should be managed for efficiency, risk and discovery purposes. The intelligent migration and filtering provided by Akaibu and Haystac enables organizations to successfully address many of these issues.”

Based on the experience of Richard E.Davis, an expert in eDiscovery and the CEO of DiscoveryLogix LLC, “Regulated entities with vast amounts of superfluous and insufficiently categorized data can now avail themselves of a highly scalable, cost effective and defensible solution set that can reduce risk and protect valuable IP in the ordinary course of business. The data governance benefits of this partnership provide organizations struggling with vast data silos the ability to operationalize data classification in ways that result in clear and quantifiable benefits for corporate stakeholders across the board.”

According to Brent Stanley, COO for Haystac LLC, “Today´s buyers are going deeper to validate the value and risk associated with an acquisition. If a company is the target of a purchase, organizing and cleaning up corporate data can provide higher clarity on the value of the business while simultaneously reducing the time and cost to support the pre- and post-acquisition due diligence. Additionally Mr. Stanley commented on the partnership with Akaibu, “The marriage of Akaibu capabilities for email archive migration management and Haystac´s predictive analytics provides customers with a robust, governance-compliant process for data migration and best-in-class end to end services.”

Locating and classifying information assets such as contracts and agreements is high on the importance scale as are, for example, high value data such as land records in the oil and gas market, and product development data in the life sciences market. Minimizing the unknown associated with dormant or non-integrated data reduces buyer fear on the front end of the transaction and also lessens the probability of post-acquisition issues, such as litigation events.

Until now, companies were unable to seamlessly process the mountains of legacy data to create official, holistic systems of record. Now, using a combination of predictive analytics and chain of custody tracking, large volumes of legacy email can be intelligently and accurately processed and classified to make the acquisition target “Due Diligence Ready”.
