On this episode of the My TechDecisions Podcast, we are joined by Taren Rodabaugh, CIO of Bridgestone Americas, to talk about the critical role IT plays when conducting a merger or acquisition.
In today’s digital age where technology drives innovation and serves as a foundational piece of any organization, the IT department is a critical consideration when conducting a merger or an acquisition.
Rodabaugh says integrating the technology used by each organization is an incredibly important and time-consuming task that requires diligence and deliberate decision-making to ensure that the combined organization doesn’t miss a beat when the transaction is complete.
For an IT leader, merging IT departments and technologies is equally as important as the integration of any other company assets. This process requires transparency, careful planning and thorough evaluations before any decisions are made. But, if it’s done correctly, it should result in more efficient business and streamlined IT operations, says the CIO.
