Reduce Risk in Business Acquisitions and Consolidation by Better Managing IT and Infrastructure Dependencies
While some business change is unplanned (that is, dramatic changes in market condition or natural disasters), other change is planned. Some of the riskiest "Planned" changes include acquisition, expansion, consolidation or new product launches. These changes have a far-reaching impact on an organization - including its IT and infrastructure. And, inevitably, this impact commands attention at the top of the business, as CFOs and other senior executives make commitments to "The Street" and customers about what their IT and infrastructure will be able to achieve - and how quickly. An enterprise's IT leaders are in a key position to help reduce IT and infrastructure risk introduced by such initiatives as acquisition, consolidation, expansion and new products.
