Technical Due Diligence

Technical Due Diligence

Be at the Forefront of Innovation

Thinking about buying a technology business but don’t know where to start?


During the technical due diligence process, we identify any technical issues, costs and risks involved in technology mergers and acquisition investments. We have been at the forefront of digital since its inception, working on the most challenging projects delivered within the UK and on a global scale. This makes us well equipped to analyse the technology strategy of diverse startups and businesses. 

 

Technology acquisitions and investments are an increasingly attractive proposition thanks to media coverage, startup hubs and buy-in from large enterprises. Existing commercial due diligence does not go far enough to establish the credibility of a technology solution eg. HP's acquisition failure of Autonomy in 2011.

 

Our Process:
First, we meet the technology teams, review their strategy, methodologies, code and security. We then review the business roadmap and ensure the technology aligns to meet your business objectives. Next, we prepare an entirely bespoke written report and provide verbal feedback to help you make an informed decision on the company in question. Finally, we will appoint a "RAG" (Red / Amber / Green) status conveniently summarised at the top of the document for an at-a-glance assessment. conveniently summarised at the top of the document for an at-a-glance assessment.
