IT Strategy & Planning

Mergers and Acquisitions

Merger, acquisition, and divestiture events invariably lead to significant IT projects, often at a time when the business demand for IT projects already exceeds IT’s resources, budget, and bandwidth. WGroup is deeply skilled in developing strategy and executing on IT integration and separation efforts. Aligned to our philosophy of “business-driven IT,” we help design the best-fit approach for the right level of integration activity.

In integration engagements, we often start with a baseline assessment of both organizations, focused on organization, processes, infrastructure, applications, vendors, and costs. We then identify redundancies and opportunities for rationalization and consolidation. Coupled with an understanding of gaps, we develop a formal, detailed, and executable integration plan inclusive of a program timeline, resource plan, financial requirements, risk mitigation plan, and communications. Where required, we support our clients in a program management capacity through the execution of the integration efforts.

WGroup has led M&A activity in many large organizations, including private equity entities, multi-national strategic acquirers, and midsized corporations. Our seasoned consultants follow a flexible approach to meet unique requirements and business objectives. WGroup’s chief focus is on maximizing speed to value while minimizing risk and business disruption.
