Given that 70% to 80% of a typical company’s IT budget is devoted to keeping the lights on, most companies have limited bandwidth for additional investments. For private equity-owned companies, capital is a particularly scarce resource given their leverage.
While an investment in IT can be an impactful way to help control costs and develop new efficiencies, the question is where to start. You’re not looking to tie up capital in large invest- ments, especially in IT. With SAP, IT investment no longer means getting bogged down in cumbersome projects that take months to build and years to see value in.
Whether your firm’s strategy involves exit though an IPO and strategic sale or growth by means of M&A or roll-up, laying the strongest technology foundation now helps increase efficiencies as you look to investment goals and long-term successes. Investing in IT is the number one driver for ensuring successful exits, and with SAP as your partner you can quick- ly navigate and run the best solutions to help you lower risk and increase portfolio value.
