    Renovations Inc Renovations Inc Presentation Transcript

      • Merging with Acme Home Repair
        • Need to improve communication between the companies
        • Both use Microsoft for docs and spreadsheets, but use different collaboration tools (Lotus, Microsoft)
      • Budget constraints: can’t undertake an expensive & lengthy product -- need to streamline the acquisition
      • The bottom line: simplify and accelerate communication to ensure the merger’s success – despite their significantly different IT investments
      About
      • Migration to just one platform (all IBM, all Microsoft) would require a lengthy/expense evaluation, and a potentially costly migration
      • Both want to bridge communications immediately to preserve their brand loyalty & customer service levels; needs to be invisible to end users
      • Tight IT budgets mean no money to retool and retrain employees from either side of the acquisition
      • The organizations lack a shared directory
      • Content needs to be unleashed, despite the dual vendors
      Challenges © 2009 IBM all rights reserved
      • A common directory so employees can find people, identify their peers, management structures, and territories
      • A Unified Communications platform between the two organizations and their customers -- now communication flows instantly and in realtime
      • A self-service document and team repository provides a secure repository for the two companies
      • Acme leverages Rennovations Microsoft SharePoint documents, and vice-versa - both orgs can access/share documents and content
      • End users didn’t need to be retrained – they use these services within the tools they use every day
      Solution
      • Speed to Integration
      • Easy on-ramp; little training
      • Lower Cost
      • Immediate Integration
      • Instant Access to Content
      • Empowered, self-sufficient teams
      • Eliminated communication barriers between the organizations; preserved their customer reputation
