Cisco IT develops standards for assimilating newly acquired companies rapidly, consistently and with minor disruption

Cisco IT has developed a standard set of principles and processes to help assimilate newly acquired companies rapidly, consistently, and with minor disruption. With more than 115 acquisitions completed since 1993, Cisco IT continuously improves its integration expertise by applying the standards to each new acquisition.

This 10-page acquisition integration case study describes best practices and benefits, including:

  • Shorter time to gain the value expected from each acquisition
  • The ability to pursue more acquisitions, more quickly and at lower risk
  • A single network, standard infrastructure, and fully aligned IT organization
  • Faster, more efficient, and less disruptive integration efforts
  • Increased cultural integration for employees
  • Repeatable and scalable processes for future integrations
