Jay Ferro, CIO of EarthLink.
When Ferro started working at EarthLink he didn't anticipate going back to the future on the mergers and acquisitions front. But that's exactly what's happening at the '90s ISP star, which is being acquired by rival Windstream. A mere four months after leaving American Cancer Society, where he helped combine 12 cancer-combatting entities into one, Ferro has embarked on another M&A journey.
Yet Ferro says little is changing as far as his strategic remit for 2017. He's still phasing out 20-year-old applications rolled up from acquisitions EarthLink made over the years. He also remains focused on Earthlink's crucial push into software-defined wide area networks (SD-WAN), which the company views as the next frontier for growth as corporate customers pursue cloud migrations.
Ferro says the combination will help him tackle technology choice challenges. For example, while Ferro has been mulling how to upgrade EarthLink's existing quote-to-cash system, Windstream has recently done it. "They had a terrific product so that accelerates that transformation," Ferro says. The synergies are hardly one-directional. EarthLink has a head start over Windstream in selling SD-WAN services, which is part of what made the company so attractive to its acquirer, Ferro says.
