Private equity has reached a new stage of maturity in technology and data analytics. The focus has changed, with more firms now shifting their attention to software and data analytics that will help their investment teams act with agility. However, obstacles like organizational resistance to change and scarce resourcing remain in many organizations.

Our recent survey of 30 senior executives from US PE firms with at least US $2bn assets under management (AUM) reveals a new reality of increased focus on big data and analytics.
