Software Due Diligence
Are you investing in technology? We provide data-driven insights into the target's software development products, processes, and people that focus on business impact as well as an action roadmap to ensure the technology not only enables the investment thesis but there's a clear path to value creation.
Our Software Due Diligence provides you with answers to key questions:
What are the technical risks in your acquisition target that even they are unaware of?
Can your target’s team and products scale as fast as your business plan requires?
How do you contribute to the post-deal roadmap of your target’s software development?
In as little as 2 weeks, our Software Due Diligence connects the dots between the business and technology, delivering insights that help you make sound investments and recommendations to help you drive business growth post-deal.
Our proprietary software analytics platform extracts metadata from systems such as source code version-control (e.g. git, microsoft TFS), issue tracking (e.g. Jira, Trello), and code quality analysis (e.g. SonarSource) and presents a visual analysis of the data.
With extensive experience in software development and business, our experts analyse the data to uncover surprising insights and drive deep-dive interviews and surveys with the target’s key personnel.
Regular calls throughout the Software Due Diligence process keep you informed on the progress and the insights we acquire, allowing you can adjust your strategy and final negotiations accordingly.
