7 Mile Advisors acted as the buyside advisor to Kofile, the parent company of GovOS and an Audax Private Equity portfolio company, throughout the acquisition.
“With the addition of MUNIRev’s industry leading tax collection and business licensing solutions to GovOs’ client base, the combined company will be well positioned to address great demand at the state and local levels for user-friendly digital services allowing them to connect communities and bring more efficient solutions to all public sector stakeholders.” said Kristina Sergueeva, Managing Director at 7 Mile Advisors.

Breakwater Solutions Acquired Clairvoya
Breakwater Solutions, a leader in information governance and data risk management, has completed the acquisition of Clairvoya, developer of an agile, enterprise-class data governance solution that solves complex challenges with data lineage for governance, privacy, and incident response. The acquisition was funded by an additional capital investment to Breakwater by JLL Partners.
Clairvoya manages the lineage of data in motion, answering questions, such as who has accessed the data, what did they do to it, and where did it go. These capabilities complement Breakwater’s StoredIQ for Information Governance platform, designed to manage data at rest, answering questions, such as where is the data now, who has it now, and what is in it.
“Data lineage is a critical capability in modern data governance practices and is generally unavailable for unstructured data,” said Ryan O’Leary, Research Manager, Privacy and Legal Technology, at IDC. “The addition of Clairvoya to the Breakwater data governance software portfolio will allow Breakwater to address real-world problems that many organizations are struggling to address by adding data in motion to static data inventories.” For further details, click here.
