M&As and Technology Are Interwoven

A quote by Bill Gates, "Information technology and business are becoming inextricably interwoven. I don't think anybody can talk meaningfully about one without talking about the other,"  still holds true today, especially when it comes to mergers and acquisitions (M&As).

Technology is a key driver to M&A outcomes, both as an enabler to capture value faster, and as a new category of assets and capabilities for the business. Enterprises need to embrace new technologies and the complexity of the digital ecosystems that will drive new M&A decisions and ways of thinking, impacting both operating and financial models. The goals for M&A events are changing, with “acquiring a new digital capability” and “needing a next-generation technology” rivaling traditional reasons such as expanding into new industries or geographies.

With the average M&A integration planning time from announcement to close now shrinking from a period of up to twelve months to less than 120 days, even complex global deals, which historically would have a close window of six to nine months, may now close as quickly as 180 days from announcement. To meet the requirements of accelerated timelines and to enable increasingly aggressive synergy targets and new business models, IT leaders heavily rely on technology providers' expertise and resources.
