The Impact of Cloud in M&A

Date: Tuesday, November 10, 2015
Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST
Today’s business environment is driving companies to focus on core strengths and the most profitable business activities. With many M&A transactions, be it a Joint Venture, Spin-off or Sale of a subsidiary the problem remains the same: the ongoing management of core financials. Leveraging a cloud base ERP is a practical alternative to the traditional on premise or hosted solutions many organizations have embraced in the past. It is also an opportunity for business leaders to transform their business and move to a subscription operating model where you can ramp up or ramp down system costs based on the dynamics of the business.

We will look into a global organization with focus on the cloud-based ERP selection and deployment effort, benefits achieved and lessons learned. This webinar will also:
  • Review M&A transaction types and integration approaches
  • Discuss M&A infrastructure challenges and potential benefits of cloud-based solutions
  • Discuss architecture strategies to leverage cloud solutions
  • Discuss criteria that may limit the potential deployment of cloud solutions
After attending this event you will be able to:
Recognize M&A transaction types and integration approaches
Identify M&A infrastructure challenges and potential benefits of cloud-based solutions
Understand architecture strategies to leverage cloud solutions
List criteria that may limit the potential deployment of cloud solutions
