IT Merger & Acquisition Integration

The Issue:

Organizations merge, acquire and divest assets all the time.  Operations and costs are very often directly tied to technology use in the organizations. Therefore, having a coordinated and structured approach to evaluating the state of the involved parties, their needs, and being able to quickly decide on a path forward, is critical to the success of any merger, acquisition or divestiture.


Here are the typical scenarios that we have encountered:

  1. Merger: Two relatively equal organizations come together. There are lots of similar systems and duplication of efforts. Efficiency and cost savings are potentially huge if the organizations can, relatively quickly, standardize and streamline operations.
  2. Acquisition: One typically larger or more mature organization takes over a smaller or less mature operation. The challenge here is also to quickly implement technology and processes by which the smaller organization can be part of the new organization.
  3. Divestiture: An organization shuts down or sells a portion of the business. In this case the organization needs to right size their technology and processes for their new organization size and mission. Not doing so might actually counteract the efficiency and cost savings goals of the divestiture and put the organization in a precarious situation.
