Business leaders should be wary of embarking on a Merger & Acquisition (M&A) growth strategy whose success relies on integrating highly fragmented IT architectures. Having a strong data integration strategy is imperative when acquiring, merging or divesting a company.
Today highly fragmented enterprises cobble together line of business systems with brittle point-to-point integrations. This patchwork mentality around integration inhibits a business’s ability to reveal & remove information blind spots, perform due diligence and complete divestitures, mergers or acquisitions effectively. This piecemeal strategy results in prolonged business transactions and integration initiatives, which can last, from fiscal quarters to multiple years.
Let’s look at an example, Company A currently runs on SAP but is planning to acquire Company B which is running on Oracle. The logical next steps would be for Company B to move all their massive amounts of a data over to SAP, right? This will take months of planning and possibly years to execute.
