Merger and acquisition (M&A) deals that look great on paper can fail to meet their business goals if integration isn’t completed quickly and effectively. At Oracle, we’ve purchased and integrated more than 150 companies over the last 20 years while increasing efficiency, improving the customer experience, and attaining an industry-leading non-GAAP operating margin of more than 40%.
Wondering how we did it? We’ve captured our secrets in the Oracle Playbook for Corporate Development Excellence to help you achieve similar success.
For many companies, M&A is a key strategy for competing in the marketplace and meeting long-term growth objectives. As a result, it’s essential to integrate an acquired company’s operations and employees quickly while minimizing any disruption to customers, employees, and partners.
As part of our integration efforts, we’ve moved off approximately 5,000 acquired company applications and closed nearly 50 data centers as we centralized on Oracle Cloud Applications and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). This has enabled us to reduce costs and increase efficiency while also growing our business and delivering a positive experience to those we serve.
Here’s a sampling of how we’re using Oracle Cloud to power our business from end to end*:
