SIM Atlanta Monthly Lunch Meeting

Speaker: Dewey Ray, President, Cognitive Diligence, LLC

Topic: “Preparing the IT Environment for a Merger or Acquisition: Taking a Proactive Approach”


For many IT leaders their first experience with M&A happens when the CEO informs them that the company is in the process of completing a merger or acquisition. As the initial shock subsides, the IT leader typically responds by aggressively preparing for the integration of the IT capabilities. It can be a very hectic time, prompting the phrase “if only I had known this was coming .....” Knowing that a merger or acquisition is coming isn’t always possible, but there ARE steps that can be taken to prepare the IT environment for a potential M&A event. 

Our speaker for the June meeting is Dewey Ray, a former CIO and author of “The IT Professional’s Merger and Acquisition Handbook”. His presentation will help you: 

• Assess the likelihood that an M&A event will occur and how it may impact your IT environment;
• Identify some high-payoff, low-cost initiatives that will prepare your IT environment for an M&A event; 
• Proactively apply M&A integration best practices within your IT environment. 

The talk will last about 20-25 minutes with Q&A afterwards. Following the talk there will be a drawing for an autographed copy of his book.
