The challenge. M&A seems to be a recurring headline if you scroll through your online news feed. However, the majority of deals still miss the mark on achieving their expected synergies and often result in overspending with technology suppliers.

The reality. Companies undergoing a merger or acquisition tend to overlook the impact to software vendor licensing and compliance, which can quickly lead to excessive fees being paid to vendors.

The Impact. Deferring software licensing risks or waiting for an M&A deal to close can dramatically reduce your supplier leverage resulting in:

  • Costly license agreements that consume integration and IT budgets
  • Exposure to potential licensing issues if software assets aren’t proactively managed
