I'm a pretty disciplined investor and pretty disciplined buyer. I do my due diligence. I do my homework. I don't waste money.

The Right Stuff

Technical Due Diligence: The Right Stuff?

Far too many companies are bought and sold with only a passing glance into the underlying technology and culture. We firmly believe that these two are some of the most important areas, and can have a very material impact on the valuation of a business (for better or worse). This is why conducting professional technical due diligence is so important!

If you are an investor, or represent the purchasing side of a business transaction, you deserve a solid independent look inside what makes the engine tick.  If you are the seller, there are a multitude of reasons to leverage our service: gap analysis and peace of mind chief among them.

During the buildup to the Apollo moon-landing missions, a brave collection of astronaut candidates set out to prove that they had "the right stuff."  We take that same approach during a technical due diligence engagement.  We are digital archaeologists searching for the elusive "it factor" when we dissect a technology organization.


  Our focus with this service is on providing due diligence/risk profiling against the technology side of a business or transaction. We do not provide valuation services. If you are interested in obtaining a valuation of your business proper, we highly recommend the services of one of our partner companies: Arpeggio Advisors.

 Multi-Faceted Approach We look at 4 key areas: People, Process, Technology, & Strategy, all designed to give you a solid risk profile.
  People Vitality (Technical Leadership), culture, and other views into a technology organization.
  Process Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC), TTM (Time to Market), Velocity!
  Technology System vitality, maintainability, code review, scalability, framework usage, continuity, and more.
  Strategy Product roadmap, feasibility, resource requirements, and other goodies.

 


Thorough? Oh yeah.

We leave no stone unturned.  We don't just interview people.  We dig into code.  We unplug routers.  We test information security measures. We observe.  Why? Because it's the only way to get to what matters - the reality of things.
