Technology has become an integral part of the M&A process. But even with platforms like G2, it’s hard to keep an overview of all the technology providers in the market.

In this first edition of the M&A technology landscape, we’re trying to map all the providers of M&A technology in the following categories:

  • M&A Data resources
  • Virtual Data Rooms
  • Integration software
  • Deal pipeline management
  • Deal CRM
  • Deal marketplaces
  • Scouting
  • Shortlisting
  • Talent

Who is featured in the M&A Technology Landscape 2022

While we attempt to provide a full picture of current M&A technology providers, we have applied the following criteria:

  • Needs to be either specialized on M&A or have a relevant track record in the M&A industry
  • Needs to be technology-based or strongly tech-enabled
