Abstract

Information and information systems are valuable assets of today’s organisation. These organisations use various applications based on their needs. Whenever there is a merger between two organisations, one of the biggest challenges is to integrate and audit those applications in the merged organisations. This paper reviews various application integration and audit frameworks, discusses their limitation, and proposes an approach for the post-merger integration and audit of the applications of the merged organisations. The approach is demonstrated through the application of a case study of the merger among three organisations in Oman.
