Cutover

April 26, 2021

Deliver complex M&A events seamlessly

Mergers, acquisitions, and divestments are extremely complex business events, involving huge amounts of change, often some organization-wide uncertainties, and high pressure for the people tasked with delivering it. One of the biggest challenges post-completion is IT, system, and services consolidation of the entities involved. The faster this is completed, the sooner cost efficiencies can be realized, redundant assets can be retired, and the new teams can effectively collaborate and move forward. Untangling these systems, migrating users to new platforms, and minimizing disruptions can feel turbulent and never-ending.  Enter Cutover. 

How Cutover helps 

With proven experience in high-profile mergers and acquisitions, Cutover has demonstrated the value of advanced orchestration and observability when managing the movement and consolidation of multiple systems. 

Human and machine activities can be coordinated and automated to ensure that processes move as quickly as possible. High-level, real-time executive visibility is delivered using live telemetry and dashboards for fast, accurate progress checks that, crucially, don’t disturb the work being done. 

The rehearsal process enables teams to run through critical flows of work, like user or application migrations, network or facilities changes before going live, identifying issues, pre-empting delays, and streamlining the process for the ‘live’ event. 

Why partner with Cutover?

The Cutover platform enables you to orchestrate work end to end across your teams and technologies in dynamic, automated runbooks. 

Make work observable automatically with no interruptions, and no gap between management and the teams doing the work. Build the next level of operational excellence in Cutover.

Cutover has helped some of the largest, most complex organizations in the world to better manage critical business events. The Cutover platform coupled with decades of experience in managing transformation, technology delivery and release, and operational resilience initiatives for businesses, enables organizations to move quickly with confidence.
