Going through a merger, acquisition, or divestiture can be a challenging time for companies. They need to combine and integrate IT infrastructure, as well as manage software contracts. Network, data center, and applications all need to be either separated or consolidated and in compliance.
Despite the challenges they present, mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures create opportunities for companies to make a leap into digital transformation. IT leaders get the chance to play the role of a visionary and shape the future of the company during this transition. When organizations go through a major transition, they have the option to move away from legacy systems to a more flexible and up-to-date infrastructure model.
