Start-up IT integration assessment tool

How do companies integrate start-ups they have acquired? What are the best practices in this M&A space? How can the most common pitfalls be avoided?

The acquisition of a Start-up can be very different to standard M&A activity. A successful strategy for IT integration often requires a non-traditional, case-specific approach.

Deloitte has developed a brief self-assessment tool – based on real case scenarios and our best practices. This tool will quickly provide you with initial insights into your IT integration journey.

In our research we identified 5 key layers of IT (as presented on the graph below) that are essential for a successful integration of a Start-up. We measured the industry-specific integration depths of each of these layers. This enables the selection of the most viable and industry tailored approach.
