IT Mergers & Acquisitions

Holistic support and successful completion of IT M&A projects.

From IT carve-out to post-merger integration

The IT landscape plays a decisive role in M&A projects. If it is not separated cleanly and efficiently in the course of a sale or is not integrated into a new parent company in a targeted manner, high costs are incurred in the post-merger integration and employee productivity and satisfaction suffer.

IT Mergers & Acquisitions

We support you in IT as part of mergers and acquisitions projects, both in the separation of sold parts of the company (IT carve-out) and in the rebuilding of standalone IT or the integration of IT into an existing landscape on the buyer's side.

Our services begin with the analysis of existing services and the identification of optimization potential. In addition, we create the IT modernization strategy and take over the planning of the future IT landscape through to the reliable transfer to operations. As an active member of the German Association for Mergers & Acquisitions, we regularly review and optimize our proven process models.

What we do

We accompany IT mergers & acquisitions from the analysis to the anchoring in operations and ensure that no unknown risks arise.


We carry out extensive due diligence, identify risks and synergies in relation to the IT landscape and examine options for renegotiating contracts or reducing costs in general. Our detailed assessment of IT resources, processes and support structures serves as the basis for the next phases. 

Day 1 operations

In addition to setting up a solid project organization with concrete milestones, we make urgent preparations for Day 1. We ensure that key players have access to the buyer's business applications, provide a collaboration platform for the integration project and enable access to important intranet pages (integration portal).

Planning & conception

We plan and develop functional specifications and create technical migration concepts. <span class="ui-provider a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z ab ac ae af ag ah ai aj ak">We coordinate the implementation process in close coordination with the affected departments and suppliers, and</span> attach great importance to structured risk management.


We ensure that all necessary measures are implemented on time and on budget and adapt support structures while maintaining business continuity at all times. If required, we take on change management measures, user training and the handover to operations.
