In the recent years up to 50% of deal synergy in Mergers and Acquisitions have
been related to Information Technology. The role of IT in the execution of M&A transactions cannot
be overstated. DivIHN’s M&A IT Solution Group, created and serving clients since 2014,
exists to ensure M&A IT execution effectiveness in all phases of the M&A lifecycle.

Your program will be safe with DivIHN’s M&A IT team. Our M&A professionals are experienced M&A IT Integration Specialists dedicated exclusively to working with clients across the life cycle of a transaction. They are not generalists or ‘freshly minted MBA’s and junior consultants that you need to train before they contribute value; we have instead dedicated the entirety of our professional practice to M&A excellence. We deliver rapid and clear understanding of the issues and their monetary value impact; we help integrate technology in line with the value expectations; we deliver optimized technology portfolio and roadmap for the future.

While our project assignments are designed and scoped to each Client’s specific needs and objectives, the following types of engagements are common to many of our client programs, and often found in combination as well.

Capability Building

We provide resources to assess, develop and document Clients’ M&A IT capability and readiness. Often beginning with assessments, a second phase of work is the design, development, and deployment of a custom M&A IT Lifecycle Framework, M&A IT Playbook and Tools. We also provide M&A Software Assessments. Capability building often involves transformation—we assess and design fit-for-purpose IT Organizational Capability improvements with lightweight change management and enablement programs to ensure new M&A IT capabilities are understood and adopted.

Full M&A IT Team Support

We provide resources at various levels of the M&A lifecycle structure. Typical
engagements involve designing, managing, executing, coaching and
mentoring during each phase of the deal lifecycle, including multiple
simultaneous deals.
