Organizations continue to underestimate the role of IT in M&A transactions. The involvement of IT in the due diligence phase is critical to providing a better view of risks, improving the ease of integration, and optimizing synergies post-merger.

This storyboard includes information on:
  • Preparing an IT due diligence charter to gain the support and buy-in from key stakeholders.
  • Gaining the trust and buy-in from executive management by providing a brief presentation that gets IT involved early in the due diligence phase.
  • Evaluating the health of IT capabilities that support the business throughout an M&A transaction.
  • Tracking, collecting, and documenting information throughout the due diligence phase in a structured report.
  • Creating an integration budget to submit to the M&A team for approval by management.
Get due diligence started on the right foot by getting IT involved early in the M&A process pre-close to ensure post-close success.
