Management Consulting

IT is crucial to successful merger integration and supports many important integration activities. However, it is often identified as a root cause of failed M&A and divestiture efforts due to poor IT platform and organization integration, inefficient due diligence and failure of IT to enable business synergies. These same areas, however, are also key targets for significant profit opportunities.

Go To Technologies' IT merger integration experts work with our experienced mergers and acquisitions consultants to help companies focus on the value that technology brings to a deal.

Go To Technologies focuses its support on key areas of IT merger integration, including application, portfolio, infrastructure, IT organization, projects and suppliers. We partner with clients to address key technology-related M&A challenges:

  • Post-merger integration planning: Integration plans need to be uniquely tailored to the nature of each deal, beginning early in the process.  Our due diligence process actively engages clients and their partners to assess existing IT environments and capabilities, and then identify the opportunities and threats of changes in business structure.
  • Developing IT integration approaches: We work together to develop a tailored strategic IT roadmap, including a migration plan, and guide the IT decisions and actions required to realize the deal’s maximum value and benefit.
  • Accelerate integration: We help clients develop an IT integration approach that is closely linked with the business integration plan. With our trademark rigor and objectivity, we estimate category-specific synergies and required investments in advance of action, so that leaders can make necessary trade-offs based on data rather than intuition.

In the short-term, we focus on preparing the combined organization to start strong on day one and hit initial revenue goals. These components build confidence in the deal rationale and minimize business disruption. At the same time, we help to build the right IT infrastructure for the long-term, enabling sustainable cost and revenue synergies.

Divestitures and Separations

When successful companies think about how to manage their portfolios, they think not only about which businesses to grow, but also which to shed. Divestitures require careful orchestration to reorganize and maximize the value of a business's IT platforms and people. Sometimes, divesting non-core assets allows management to focus its attention on the core business—including its IT strategy.
