IT Due Diligence
A Must-do Before Any Tech M&A
IT due diligence (ITDD) is an in-depth audit of a tech company's products/services and IT capabilities. It is a necessary procedure to be done when considering a significant transaction with a tech company, whether it is an investment, purchase, merger, or acquisition. In case a ITDD is not conducted, there can be serious consequences during the transition, such as lack of synergy post M&A, unexpected cashout or even a closedown, causing a serious and unrecoverable loss.
Tokyo Techies provides a comprehensive IT Due Diligence process to quickly identify crucial IT issues before tackling them to limit and diminish further problems down the road. We bring in our extensive experience based on a wide range of projects, thereby ensuring the best possible outcomes.
Tokyo Techies takes a holistic approach to IT Due Diligence, ensuring all key risk areas are assessed thoroughly. Not only do we focus on evaluating the existing IT infrastructure, but also put equal emphasis on potential issues that might occur during transition and post-transition processes.
