Mergers Miss Consolidation Deadline Required By Law!

Bloor Research recently reported findings on the importance of information system integration during takeovers and mergers. They concluded that the lack of business attention is worrisome.

International law requires that the new company resulting from the merger or takeover reports in 3 months its consolidated financial figures. In more than 50% of the cases the joint company misses this deadline. And only 20% of the ICT managers and CIO's think that the business pays sufficient attention to ICT integration.

MyInformationVault extracts information from legacy systems and delivers processed consolidation report secure to an employee when and where he needs it.
