Q&A With Logicalis' Wendy McQuiston: We Can Ease M&A Migration Pain

Easing The Pain of An Integration

A merger, acquisition or divestiture can be hard on the nerves, especially if you run an IT organization for a business involved in one because of the technology integration that comes with it.

That's why solution provider giant Logicalis recently announced the development of what it says is a faster and easier IT migration and consolidation method for Microsoft environments – the Domain Flip Over solution – that it says is substantially less painful and burdensome for the IT department.

The solution could prove beneficial this year, based on the results of a recent survey by Deloitte. The survey of 1,000 corporate executives and private equity investors found that three of every four of them expect more deal activity in 2017, with integration planning the top factor toward ensuring that the integration will succeed.

In an interview with ITBestOfBreed, Wendy McQuiston (pictured), director of Microsoft professional services for Logicalis US, addresses Domain Flip Over and the pain of going through an M&A or divestiture. (The interview was edited for brevity and clarity.)
