M&A and divestitures in the light of IAM and security
i was at the Technology Managers Forum security conference today (http://www.techforum.com/sf2009_1/index.html). it was a really good event packed with a lot of engaged people. we held a panel about M&A and divestitures and had a really good conversation. the conclusion is that planning and policy, like with so many other things, is the key to doing any of this well. but everyone also acknowledged that especially in today’s fast paced divestures and M&A driven by market conditions instead of business growth, there isn’t always time for the best plan and having a decisive direction and good tools is the only substitute.
we only had 45 minutes so we didn’t get into a heck of a lot of details. but i was wishing we had triple that by the end because the audience was participating and so many good threads were started and then cut off in the end. i’m sure we’ll get another chance to dive deeper.
feel free to post thoughts here and we can talk it out…
