Microsoft was the biggest acquirer with 19 deals in 2015.
Microsoft and IBM each ramped up their acquisition machines to kick start growth.
Interestingly, although most indicators of Volume and Value are pointing upwards, the activity of the largest US Technology companies is more complicated than that. Google and Yahoo each acquired over 50 companies in 2013-14 and understandably faced indigestion in 2015.
