Tech At The Heart Of M&A.

 

Technology has been integral to M&A success for decades. Today its importance seems to expand with every deal, drawing technology executives increasingly into the center of complex mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures. To meet the new demands, we invite you to explore Tech at the heart of M&A, a collection of Deloitte articles based on direct experience helping clients get M&A IT right, start to finish—from due diligence to planning, execution, and post-transaction integration.

 

Understanding technology's role in M&A

 

Technology plays a huge role in M&A—and it seems to expand with every deal, bringing technology executives increasingly into the center of M&A transactions. Historically, the core mandate for technology teams in M&A was to find cost synergies and enable functional separation or consolidation. Now, as companies buy and sell technology and intellectual property and make strategic investments in increasingly sophisticated digital innovations, effective M&A requires business-savvy IT executives who can play a broader and more strategic role.

 

By providing the building blocks for a clearly articulated, defined, and institution-wide approach to M&A technology implementation, we help free up technology executives for the more important and highest value-add role they can play in the M&A transaction: driving the core technology strategy in tandem with revenue growth and cost-curve optimization.

 

We hope these perspectives provide valuable insights and directly applicable guidance on how to approach the technology aspects of M&A. Through an end-to-end, principle-based approach, Deloitte’s M&A Technology practice takes the guesswork out of operational separation or integration.
