Mergers and acquisitions are a common part of business, allowing organisations to grow their customer base, expand their offering and extend their reach in the market or in the location of their operations.
Previously a challenge to execute smoothly, mergers and acquisitions can now be conducted with relative ease. Using the right support can merge not only cultures and clients, but also systems, so that they can communicate and operate effectively together without a hitch.
Merger and acquisitions integrations (M&A integration) will impact core business systems such as application licensing, platform requirements and ongoing support. Failing to integrate systems effectively can end up being expensive and far more time-consuming than taking action from the beginning.
Making effective changes to core SAP systems is essential for ensuring alignment with new business operating models, and needs to be done with minimal business disruption. Time is of the essence.
