Is the CIO’s involvement critical to the success of an acquisition?

Regardless of your role in the company, your ability as an executive to create what could be considered invisible integrations has enormous value. That ability only goes unappreciated in companies that don't do acquisitions, because it is a huge pain when you do it wrong.

The CIO doesn't have all the data. In a lot of ways, the CIO may manage the bits on the disc, but they don't necessarily own or know where all of the material data is. The success of an acquisition is a bigger question that goes beyond the CIO. The CIO can be the facilitator who brings the right people together, but I wouldn't expect all of the pieces to rest at their feet.
