M&A DUE DILIGENCE

Through comprehensive assessments of both existing and prospective technologies, KMS offers you the full picture of incoming platforms. Being aware of the risks and rewards associated with an acquisition allows companies to have all the information and analysis required for a successful acquisition and integration.

KMS APPROACH

As part of our technology due diligence approach, we determine the quality, scalability, and maintenance requirements of the target software company’s applications. Based on this assessment, we determine:

Redundancy between the current platform and the platform to be acquired

Whether certain aspects of either platform should be eliminated or updated

If the platform needs to be rebuilt to utilize newer technologies

The best way to leverage newly acquired features

The best strategy for platform integration between new and existing platforms

Data migration strategy and requirements
