Mergers and Acquisitions
Mergers and Acquisitions (takeovers) have become an important part of the business strategy for many medium to large enterprises in an effort to adapt in a business and technology environment dominated by digital disruption, globalization, regulatory changes, technology breakthroughs and global and local economic forces. Enterprise Architecture has a key role to play to describe and plan the way the takeovers are planned and performed ensuring they have the best chance of achieving the desired business outcomes.
Enterprise Architect has a wide range of tools that can assist in the planning and execution of architectures designed to transition the enterprise during a Merger or Acquisition. These include tools such as the Specification Manager to view catalogs of Capabilities, Objectives, Applications and more and the Roadmap diagrams that can be used to plan and visualize the sequence of changes to Capabilities, Applications, Technology Nodes and other elements.
