Another deal closed last week.  It is a big one so it will be interesting to watch the integration process on this one.  I drove the acquisiton of a public company, Seque Testing by Borland.  Of the deals done this year, this is the one I am the most worried about.  East coast versus west coast, different price points, etc

We have an outside firm involved in the integration, my old firm, A. T. Kearney. They are driving alot of interesting analysis to focus the issues.

I look forward to sharing the learnings once more time goes by and it can be done without impacting confidentiality
