November 4, 2011 – Transactions in the information management space are up from 2010 and that is expected to carry on into 2012 through a mix of market interest and vendor positioning, according to new findings from merger and acquisition advisory firm Berkery Noyes.

In its Q3 trends report, Berkery Noyes noted the value of the 768 mergers and acquisitions at $39.4 billion, down slightly from that same quarter last year, but part of a 2011 that has already topped transaction values from 2010. The most active buyer during the third fiscal quarter was Google, with 20 acquisitions, and HP’s $10.2 billion deal for analytics provider Autonomy was the biggest of the quarter and 2011 fiscal year so far, Berkery Noyes reported.
