Client Profile & Challenge

Our client is a PE-backed AEC services firm with a global network of professionals providing specialized services such as Forensics, Engineering, Expert Witness Services, and Project Advisory.


Our client was in the midst of a highly acquisitive stage and was continuously facing challenges with the data integration of the target company. These data challenges would lead to a delay in the realization of value as the data integration process often took several months to a year to complete. Our client needed a data integration framework to expedite this process and achieve the synergies of the acquisition faster.

Solution Overview

Messina Group developed a custom data integration framework consisting of a powerful data cleansing and AI-enabled profiling solution, a transformation and loading platform, and automated audit and cleansing tools. This robust solution was paired with a resource and governance plan, which identified the people and processes to quickly surface, review, and remediate data anomalies.
