Think logically about “logical separation”

Part of the #Tech @ the heart of M&A series

“Think logically about ‘logical separation’” stresses that logical separation should be a front-burner issue for IT executives. When an asset sale or spin-off involves an IT transaction services agreement (TSA), appropriate tools and restrictions need to be put in place to both enable day-to-day operations and prohibit unauthorized access. The need for logical separation applies to applications, underlying databases, and data sources, but also to core infrastructure components.

About the #Tech @ the heart of M&A series

In a new series on the role of technology in M&A, #Tech @ the heart of M&A, Deloitte provides a comprehensive overview of M&A technology transformation based on helping clients with the essential steps—from cost management to contract separation through application elements of privacy protection and service delivery components of infrastructure. By providing the building blocks for a clearly articulated, defined, and institution-wide approach to M&A technology implementation, Deloitte clients can free up technology executives for the more important and highest value-add role they can play in the M&A transaction—driving the core technology strategy in tandem with revenue growth and cost-curve optimization.
