IT Merger Integration and IT Carve-Out — Fostering External Growth and Disinvestment with IT
Acquiring enterprises and streamlining the portfolio during an external growth strategy are just as much integral parts of the life cycle of large enterprises as innovation and cus- tomer orientation are the supporting pillars of internal growth. Just as IT as an enabler for business strengthens the innovation capability of the company and increases cus- tomer bonding — thereby forming the basis for internal growth — it is also a success factor for external growth. The merger integration of enterprises always means integrating IT as well, and divesting a business unit always means that the IT system of this business unit is de-integrated from the overall enterprise as well — also called IT carve-out.
