During a merger or acquisition (M&A), companies often struggle to get an accurate picture of the existing IT landscapes and how the M&A activity can impact the future IT landscape. Taking an inventory of IT assets and their lifecycles is often time-consuming, manual, unreliable, and duplicated. It can also lead to data being stored in several places, creating information silos and clouding visibility into the IT portfolio.
When the IT portfolios of merging companies are combined, they overflow with duplicate, redundant, obsolete, and irrelevant applications and technologies. It increases the complexity of the IT landscape, even if a company had healthy IT systems prior to the merger or acquisition.

MEGA’s HOPEX solutions for IT Due Diligence enable IT and enterprise architects to inventory their IT assets and resources within a single repository.
The inventory can be done using multiple perspectives, such as: deployments, lifecycles, costs, risks, and business value. The data collection process can be crowdsourced so that IT leaders have confidence in data they’re using for evaluation and planning – and it’s directly from stakeholders who interact with the applications or technologies regularly.
HOPEX solutions provide a single source of truth about IT assets that serves as a basis for effective business planning.
