How Cloud-Based Technology Makes the Mergers & Acquisitions Process Frictionless

How Cloud-Based Technology Makes the Mergers & Acquisitions Process Frictionless

In today’s data-driven world, merging with or absorbing another company can seem stressful, to say the least. Fortunately, cloud-based technology makes it simpler than ever to integrate the infrastructures of two or more companies. It provides several benefits that allow companies to enhance their own operations, even in the middle of a merger or acquisition.

The CIO and Director of IT suddenly found themselves in charge of the IT infrastructure for an organization that was no longer a small manufacturing company, but instead a billion-dollar enterprise with multiple subsidiaries, and more coming on board.

“There is no way they had enough excess capacity in the original company to merge all the acquired IT systems together,” says Matt Scherocman, President of Interlink Cloud Advisors. “They had to go to the cloud because they couldn’t possibly move fast enough to build servers and infrastructure, to be able to consolidate the firm’s IT systems.”
