There is a lot of change happening right now. But change is not necessarily a bad thing, it also means there are new opportunities. Change and transformation cannot happen without each other. Especially now, as the current climate has forced companies to consider organisational restructuring, transformation is in higher demand than ever.
Organisations decide to outsource, spin-off or sell individual business units. Some part with certain divisions in order to focus more strongly on their core business – others want to raise capital for investments in further growth.
Regardless of the motives, a carve-out is one of the most complex tasks for a business. Not only organisational and procedural changes have to be managed. Removing a part from an existing organisation is also challenging from a technological point of view. The key question is how existing IT structures should be transferred. Data, systems and processes must be adaptedwhile legal reasons may prohibit the passing on of certain data at the same time.
When parts of a company are divested and sold, business data from different systems must be consistently separated and transferred to a new system. Only data from the divested organisational unit may be transferred to the new target system. Here, it is important to remember that existing structures relating to finance, controlling, materials management, sales and production will be different in the source and target systems.
