There is a lot of aspects to a merger or acquisition. One of the parts that might cause some unnecessary stress is IT.
Imagine two companies IT systems; each company has separate vendors for voice, data, internet and cloud, multiple types and age of equipment, and completely different network structures.
Technology factors to consider with a merger or acquisition:
Current telecom and technology service contracts and when they expire. If any of the contracts have several years left, you will need to negotiate with the carriers and vendors to give you the best pricing for new contracts.
Combining two separate networks into one efficient Local Area Network (LAN) and Wide Area Network (WAN).
Upgrading legacy technology equipment or standardizing new equipment.
Preventing cyber security risks by combining two companies or ensuring there are no immediate risks with a company you are acquiring.
