M&A Technical Due Diligence

When it comes to decision making, information is power.

There’s no room in M&A for uncertainty or blind spots.

We wrote the book on enterprise IT architecture, and our team has over a century of combined experience working in production IT environments. On top of that, we’ve experienced the M&A world both as an acquirer and an acquiree.

Rule4 can help build a more complete picture during the M&A process by evaluating the technology stack, software architecture, cybersecurity, and technical debt of targets. We identify, quantify, and assess risks, and give you data you can act on.

We can help answer questions like:
  • What’s the value of the organization’s technology intellectual property (including software), and will it integrate well with the existing environment?

  • What are the strengths, weaknesses, and maturity of the technology teams, including software, operations, and cybersecurity?

  • Which technology-based risks exist, including software, platforms, architectural, and existing technology staff?

  • Can the environment easily scale?

  • Are there known deficiencies or significant operational risks?

  • How mature is the organization’s cybersecurity program, and what cybersecurity vulnerabilities exist?

  • How well is the environment documented?

  • Are the change management and release management processes sufficiently mature and robust?

Let's take a closer look.
