Mergers and acquisitions can help organizations to secure their further growth and ensure their very existence. They also offer the opportunity to optimize processes and become more dynamic with regard to internal restructuring processes or the consolidation of individual divisions. However, strategically planning and implementing the associated change processes can pose a challenge for even experienced managers. The complexity of corporate mergers is often underestimated – especially at the beginning of corporate transformations.
In times of digital change, the success of a merger or the acquisition of new business units increasingly depends on early IT integration. IT infrastructure, data and processes must be brought together and adapted to the new business model as effectively as possible. The aim is to keep the downtimes of business-critical systems to a minimum and to make optimal use of synergy effects.
SNP’s software and services help you to carry out transformation projects quickly and securely. Our automated and highly transparent solutions enable you to plan, simulate and execute even the most complex business transformations. Conventional time frames for post-merger project integration can be reduced by up to 75 percent, allowing you to attain the desired value of your consolidated company faster.
Companies that align business and IT processes see better success from carve-out and M&A transformations. The key is a clear line of sight into the existing SAP landscape and how it impacts business processes — a view only CrystalBridge, your transformation command center, can provide.
SNP goes a step beyond simply merging your systems into one working consolidated environment. Informed by over 7,000 transformation projects, SNP automation offerings are built to help you assess and select the most efficient processes across systems by collecting key business indicators associated with each one.
The best processes can then be incorporated into the final processes that are rolled out in the harmonized environment. The result is process simplification and optimization within the SAP systems. Once the harmonization is complete, your organization will benefit from a streamlined, optimized IT landscape to support future growth initiatives.

As a result of internal restructuring, real estate provider PATRIZIA Immobilien AG needed to merge seven company codes into one. All transactions had to be reassigned retroactively to the beginning of the year, and existing inter-company relationships needed to be dissolved. In just twelve weeks, the SNP transformation platform completed the planning and testing process successfully. The error-free merge itself was carried out over the weekend, so that on Monday morning, the company was able to begin working with their new company code. Download now to read the full story.
Mergers and acquisitions necessitate very complex system integrations and data migrations, especially in the ERP landscape. In addition to the IT infrastructure, of course, business applications and business data must be brought together.
