The 5 levels of M&A technology integration: Step 2

In this Spend Matters PRO series, we define, present and explore the five levels of M&A technology integration that vendors must go through when bringing together different modules and platforms. It should be noted, however, that the grouping of different applications and technological stacks is not a prerequisite for any acquisition. But whenever a technology provider wants to commercialize and achieve synergies with their customers through a transaction outside the expected degree of integration, its timing and eventual completion must be a priority for investors and customers.

Today we’re exploring the second level of integration that occurs in a post-merger situation or when vendors replace old technology on a new stack while retaining the capability of the existing solution on the existing platform. From a vendor’s perspective, we define how to do this and provide examples of this type of integration. And from the user’s perspective, we suggest tips and tricks for tech buyers to discern this level of integration compared to others.

If you are new to this series and want to learn all five levels of integration, start with this introduction. In the previous episode, we covered the integration of step 1 in detail.
