Structural ChangeDriven by market conditions, more and more companies are looking into structural change as a way to drive value, and with technology being much more pervasive, IT can’t be overemphasized as one of the most important success factors for an integration. As such, a well planned, well executed approach to integration of the two IT landscapes is a key prerequisite for a seamless customer experience and to realize internal cost advantages (e.g., Product Development, Procurement, or Production synergies can mainly be captured if their corresponding systems are consolidated and/or integrated).
With substantial experience in transactions of all sizes, Booz & Company provides comprehensive structural change IT services along the complete Mergers and Restructuring lifecycle — from due diligence to merger planning & design through post-merger integration (PMI) — enabling key synergies, and thus fully capturing the value of the deal.
These services are built not only upon the firm’s knowledge base and hands-on efforts in hundreds of transactions, but also on the combined skills and thought leadership of Booz & Company’s staff located on six continents. In the structural change space, the firm’s service offerings fall into three broad categories:
Rapid IT assessments / due diligences (what are the key assets, where are the key watch-outs)
Solid target IT design & migration plans based on realistic business cases for organization, technology and processes, having broad and deep experience from various other end-to-end integration programs, and great expertise in all major IT domains
Capture the value of the deal, making the integration happen by managing the post merger integration program until final migration and go live.
Structural Change Service Areas
IT Due Diligence:Develop the strategic rationale for a deal, with a focus on IT and capabilities (technology, organization & processes), as well as candidate screening, negotiation, clean-room operation, and other support. IT Transaction Planning and Integration:Prepare for the transaction through benchmarking and integration design & planning: target systems & organizational design including sizing and roadmap/migration path development.
Synergy Capture: Capture post-deal value, providing support to manage the post-merger integration program, which besides standard PMO capabilities, also requires deep facilitation and change management capabilities in order to make the integration program succeed.
