Post Merger Integration
A majority of mergers do not realize benefits due to poor integration planning and execution. The situation is compounded by structural changes driven by the credit crisis.
Companies must focus on value creation and prioritize their Merger and Acquisition (M&A) activities. They need to assess IT integration requirements early in the M&A process and align technology with business integration. Moreover, companies need to identify synergies to reduce Total Cost of Ownership, initiate integration activities before the merger, and dedicate resources to integration.
Infosys' approach towards mergers and acquisitions focuses on value creation and alignment with business priorities.
