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. Without the integral involvement of IT, organizations are unlikely to obtain the timely and accurate information they need to enter into a transaction with their eyes wide open, and once the transaction is completed, IT still has a crucial role to play in whether the expected synergies actually deliver on the promise of the deal.

Highlights of this podcast:
To what degree does leaving IT out in the cold contribute to deal failures?
In what ways can IT put all the relevant information together to support the targeted M&A goals, such as revenue growth and asset efficiency?
What is the role of the chief information officer (CIO) in merger, acquisition and divestiture activities?
What are the key elements of data management that need to be addressed?
