Mergers and Acquisitions: Part 2 — The CIO Role in the Age of Digital Transformation
By: Fred Magee
This IDC Perspective explores how the CIO role for merger and acquisition (M&A) is evolving because of the emergence of enterprise digital transformation (DX) and the pressure it puts on business and IT leaders to be more creative in how they form external relationships to foster innovation. The study explores the following issues:
- How can CIOs effectively manage a portfolio of external integration options that extends beyond mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures to include alliances, joint ventures, and partnerships?
- What are the key differences between M&A scenarios that drive the choice of integration strategy for CIOs?
- Which DX competencies offer the greatest opportunities and challenges to creating an effective M&A integration portfolio?
"The dual challenge of responding to the emergence of every-changing DX capabilities while trying to maintain the enterprise as a viable provider of products and services is the core challenge for CIOs from now to as far out as IDC can see," says Fred Magee, adjunct research analyst with IDC.
