Mergers & Acquisitions - I.T. Due Diligence
When merging with or acquiring another company, a great many
variables need to be considered. A major consideration is the state of the
target company’s I.T. organization; its maturity, effectiveness and its level of
compliance to regulation. The overall state of the I.T. organization may well
determine the success or failure of the transaction.
Information technology is recognized as a key business asset;
it is the foundation on which core business processes and functions are built.
As system complexity and business interdependencies have evolved, the
interconnectivity of information systems within an organization has not only
driven business success but has also increased business risk.
Technology status, I.T.
obligations and the organizations ability to meet them is a telling factor. Does
the I.T. organization function in a structured and highly efficient manner? Are
the I.T. solutions that have been implemented effective? Is the I.T. roadmap
well defined, or have systems evolved in a haphazard and reactionary manner? A
due diligence assessment that answers these questions and examines the status of
the target company’s I.T. maturity, processes, risks and compliance status can
provide valuable insight to investors, enabling a clearer picture on the
potential cost, risk and impact of the venture.
What is I.T. Due Diligence

issues requiring close attention following the merger or acquisition. It is a
