A Dual View on IT Challenges in Corporate Divestments and Acquisitions

Acquisitions of new businesses and divestments of existing ones are frequently components of large organizations' corporate strategies. In both acquisitions and divestments, corporate IT infrastructure plays a critical role for realizing business objectives. In this paper, the authors take a dual view of the IT-related challenges in divestment and acquisition strategies, studying them as a single integrated transaction between a buyer and a seller and investigating how the IT carve-out and IT integration strategies influence each other.
