Assessing IT resources
The importance of IT due diligence is rising as IT assets become an ever more strategic component and growth factor in all types of business. IT staff, products, software development processes, networks and infrastructure, intellectual property, customers, e-commerce sites, databases, cybersecurity, and more need to be assessed for the buyer to get a 360° view of the technical, human, methodological and organisational resources to be acquired, allowing them to make an informed investment decision about the target company. It is also possible for an assessment to result in a change of the transaction price.
Reviewing risks & perspectives
IT due diligence consist of a technical risk review carried out by auditing the target company’s IT system, which helps investors determine its strengths and weaknesses and therefore determine the value of the business with a focus on sustainability, maintenance cost, integration, ramp-up, scalability and evolution capabilities.
Pentalog’s consulting experts carry out technology due diligence assessments focused on 4 key issues in relation to IT:
- quality evaluation
- expense identification
- employees’ skills
- business and financials
The two main goals of this analysis are to identify any issues that could impact the deal (license agreement, source code availability, etc.) and to gather information needed for successful integration (product plan, hardware inventory, etc.).
Do you have any questions?
Working with Pentalog helped us significantly, they responded really well to the urgency of the situation. After just one week we had found a qualified freelancer to undertake our mission. The platform gave us support and guidance right through the selection and administration process, so that the mission could run as smoothly as possible.
We were convinced by Pentalog’s approach: advice from a CTO to help us architect our solution, 2 freelancers and support to find funding. In addition, we were seduced by the price of courses but especially by the implementation time: 2 months instead of 5 or 6 months if we were on a development from scratch.
Working with Pentalog is very reassuring. As their CTO had worked with us on prior improvements to the app, I didn’t think twice about calling on them again when I found out that the first developer was unavailable. Four days later they had found someone equally competent and we didn’t have to worry about the admin side of things. The platform gave us support and guidance right through the mission from start to finish, to make sure it ran as smoothly as possible.
