Unlocking the Benefits of the Deal: How IT Can Capture M&A Synergies
Deloitte Insights podcast
Too often IT is brought in late in the game and almost as an afterthought. By failing to invite IT to the party, companies may overpay for an acquisition and suffer buyer's remorse down the road. And when they neglect to align their business strategy and IT, they may assume risks that they didn't realise were there until it's too late.
