M&As and Divestitures are transactions in which the ownership of companies, other business organizations, or their operating units are transferred or consolidated with other entities. As an aspect of strategic management, M&A&Ds can allow enterprises to grow or downsize, and change the nature of their business or competitive position.
As CCO have led numerous highly visible M&A&Ds in the Bay Area over the years, we offer:
Audits and discovery of acquired organizations’ systems, processes and staffing
Planning and architecture design for all migrated, changed or added systems, processes and staff
Risk and security assessment for combined systems and processes
Overall program management for consolidation and migration efforts
Migration/consolidation of technology services including:
On-premises productivity tools such as Exchange, Sharepoint or Skype
System and process automation to simplify combined and integrated tasks
Suffice to say, successful merger integration requires close alignment of IT and the business side of a company before, during, and after the merger. Such an approach dictates that IT communicate early and often with the business during all aspects of the M&A process. With years of experience in these M&As, CCO helps drive these conversations from day one that will ultimately set the foundation for these projects. In short, don't go about it on your own. Let CCO and our team of experts help lead the way.
