Check out Attensa. They might be a good fit.

Don,

Great post as usual. I couldn't agree more relative to big acquisitions and the difficulty in generating the vaunted synergies that are touted to investors and employees at the time of the deal.

I went into this phenomenon quite a bit when Veritas and Symantec merged...it touches on some of the same ideas.

Best,

This was a wonderful discussion of synergy and leverage, with great analysis and explanation. I found your observations about smaller acquisitions, particularly the mention of Microsoft's smaller acquisitions, really fascinating!
