Mergers & Acquisitions: How IT Can Manage the Unmanageable
Many companies have a business model in which they regularly consider and execute merger and acquisition (M&A) events and have already developed standard operational processes. Others treat them as one-off events, which can be risky given the potential complexity and the impact on IT. With the economy continuing to rebound, the potential for these events is only growing. Is your company ready?
No matter your readiness, it’s likely an area that requires more scrutiny. If you have a plan and used it, how did it perform? If you haven’t put it in action yet, how do you know you’re really covered? If you don’t have a plan, how do you quickly get started so you’re ready before you’re in the middle of an unexpected event?
What’s possible? A targeted plan designed to help you reach integration goals, based on anticipated financial benefits, technology portfolio alignment, risk tolerance and anticipated future changes and needs.
