Let's start on landscape
For any merger and acquisitions, you would have to start with a map of the current landscape. As you are trying to enable new processes and maximize synergies, map out the current processes of each organization. Start realizing which systems in place, what processes they support and why? Analyze the interdependencies of existing processes, examine whether what should be kept, enhanced or replaced, and evaluate how they affect the client’s post-merger business functions. Your goal is to capture the combined business capabilities and requirements then further prioritize them for the upcoming IT integration plan.

A successful post-merger technology integration strategy requires a thorough analysis of the current state of IT at each organization as well as the ideal future state.

Data protection has become a feature of M&A due diligence since introduction of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in 2018, and certain aspects of data management will be under scrutiny. The acquiring organization will want to know whether personal data stored in the customer contact systems has consent for use post-M&A.
From a technical perspective, there may also be a change in assigned data ‘controller’, which would need to be communicated to impacted individuals in the database and is likely to require read / write controls to be managed. All of this is easier in an integrated environment where data sharing is created through database links rather than import / export activity that exposes data to security risk. We are experts in data management and we can help you in this area.
