Custom Software Apps & SharePoint Consulting


Mergers and acquisitions are an inevitable side effect of the current business climate in oil & gas. You know that it’s not a question of if, but when oil and gas companies will sell or purchase assets. A single well can generate up to a terabyte of data every single day. What is your plan to gather, manage, and evaluate the asset data both before and after the deal?

Nate Richards is speaking at a complimentary luncheon at III Forks in downtown Houston on April 29th about the role of information as an asset in M&A activity. This luncheon will answer the following questions:

  • How do apps & data fit into integration strategy before and after a deal?
  • When does IT needs to join the deal conversation?
  • How do we create a strategy to minimize transition costs during the transaction?
  • What does it mean to be “transaction ready” as an IT department before you even learn about a deal?

I hope that you can make it, and look forward to seeing you there!

Where: III Forks Restaurant, downtown Houston, TX
