Carve-Outs and the Cloud: A Synergistic Coupling

The mergers and acquisitions market is a complex and challenging industry and the last two years has seen a rise in the number of transactions. Working with companies in this space over the last 10 years, we at RKON have seen and hopefully helped change the mindset of private equity and management consulting firms on how they build and deliver IT. There are various types of deals in the merger and acquisition space, but we will focus on divestitures or “carve-outs” which are arguably the most challenging from an IT perspective.
