Whether you are investing in a new business, or looking to merge organisations, there is a natural wish to rationalise resources to optimise performance across all sectors of the enterprise. While for many core functions this can be fairly straightforward, evaluating IT systems, networks and functions is a complex and challenging task.
Even if the merging businesses have the skill set and competency required to make accurate value judgements, naturally vested interests can conflict with objective appraisal. Yet where continuity of both businesses is paramount, these are not decisions to be taken lightly. Most critically, IT issues must not be allowed to become the single point of failure conflicting with merger value realisation.
That is why many businesses are outsourcing their IT due diligence to ramsac, and why ramsac is building an extensive track record in the analysis, comparison and rationalisation of differing IT functions and IT personnel.
