IT M&A Strategy

IT is one of the most costly and complex functions to integrate and is typically a driver of significant synergies while enabling business strategy. IT must deliver value while integrating systems and building a platform to enable the next stage of growth, all without negatively impacting customers and business performance during a time of ownership transition.

Our professionals understand the nuances of navigating these challenges and bring a disciplined approach to deal strategy, due diligence, integration planning and execution, and operational performance improvement. With proven methodology, tools, accelerators, and experienced leadership, we can establish a program within days and manage the playbook to integrate deals from acqui-hire to large scale transformations, carve-outs, and divestitures.
