Pre-Merger IT Due Diligence.
Mergers & Acquisitions (M&As) are among the most intense and challenging activities in business. Managing the IT integration risk associated with a merger has become a major component in determining the ultimate success or failure of M&A activities. If you look around at all the merger and acquisition activity going on today, you see a lot of deals taking place without properly evaluating technology. The fact is, IT plays a critical role in determining how effectively the merged organization is able to integrate processes and people, as well as deliver products and services to internal and external customers.
Smart buyers know due diligence doesn’t stop with the financial reports.
adrytech has developed a comprehensive IT Due Diligence Program leveraging our detailed IT evaluation and security assessment methodology. As part of our IT Due Diligence process, we address our client’s requirements to understand an acquisition target’s IT environment.
