Customer would have to bring in an outside consultant to do the due diligence, then retain an IT firm in that geographic location to work in conjunction with the consultant to perform the work. These parties would have to then coordinate with internal IT staff to begin the integration process.
Valuable time would be lost during the crucial first weeks following the acquisition resulting in loss of productivity and the high potential for data damage or complete loss.
