Program Content: The M&A market is hot and is expected to continue into 2022 at a bullish pace. Private equity has record levels of capital, which they are deploying to technology and technology enabled companies who have benefited and continue to benefit from the digital transformation trends that we’ve all seen as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

IT plays a key role in M&A transactions speeding deal making and boosting deal value, while also reducing risk and helping to reposition a company for growth. During this webcast, we’ll discuss how:

  • Cloud technologies and digital operating models can often accelerate transaction timelines and reduce the need for lengthy TSAs. With the right approach, M&A timelines can be accelerated by 30% by turning to cloud computing and new digital operating models.
  • Companies with weakened cybersecurity hygiene can destroy deal value. The public nature of the transaction environment attract cyber criminals and maintaining focus on cybersecurity helps reduce regrets caused by a cyber attack later in the deal lifecycle.
  • M&A transactions create a unique opportunity to shed legacy technology restraints and transform IT for future growth.
  • IT enables up to 40% of integration related synergies by achieving economies of scale and enabling business related synergies.
