EA for M$AEnterprise Architecture:
A Key to Unlocking the Value of Acquisitions

In the digital era, mergers and acquisitions (M&As) can be especially rife with challenges. But with a relentless focus on using enterprise architecture (EA) to catalyze acquisitions, we can mitigate the challenges. In this webinar, Cutter Consortium Senior Consultants Gustav Toppenberg and Stefan Henningsson look at the problem of acquisitive growth and reveal how advances in EA practices not only overcome obstacles, but also enable value creation.

Toppenberg and Henningsson, coauthors of Architecting Growth in the Digital Era, take you through a few case studies of Fortune 500 companies that grew through acquisition. They look at how these organizations were able to unlock value through the lens of the M&A leader, and also from the perspective of the EA professional. You’ll discover how EA catalyzed the acquisitions these companies made.

In this on-demand webinar, you’ll:

  • Discover how EA can unlock the value potential of acquisitions without inducing long-term issues that will eventually force the acquirer to undertake a major organizational restructure.

  • Learn how you can use EA during the different phases of an acquisition, including how to set up the company in preparation for an acquisition to avoid problems

  • Learn how to draw on EA to orchestrate the strategic transformation that acquisitions entail in a way that reduces time-to-synergies and leaves fewer remaining issues to deal with after the dust has settled.
