Lumenia Consulting have just published a new Quarterly Executive Briefing aimed at senior executives who have an interest in matters relating to the effective management of IT. Each issue will be of real and practical value, helping readers to reduce risk, manage cost and realise more value from business systems. Each issue will address one topic and will provide content not easily accessible from other sources.
Issue 1, “Business Systems Strategy following Merger or Acquisition”, has just been published. This Briefing:
- Classifies Mergers and Acquisitions and identifies when a new business systems strategy will be required.
- Describes some of the steps required to develop a business systems strategy in this context.
- Provides a detailed checklist of IT-related issues that may have to be addressed in the short to medium term.
- Identifies the IT challenges involved in realising some typical business benefits that might be expected following M&A activity.
One of the first steps in ensuring a successful post-merger integration is to establish a business systems strategy for the combined business that supports the corporate vision and objectives. The goal should be to provide clarity in relation to business objectives and how the systems strategy supports those objectives.
