Invest with confidence

Understand the technology risk and value creation potential of your investment. For M&A, our IT Due Diligence process combines specific knowledge of the technology industry with extensive insight into what matters to private equity.

Because we’re trusted to deliver by global brands, we know what great technology looks like. We rapidly produce clear and robust technical reports that focus on the commercial impact of a target’s technology, benchmarked against the hundreds of companies we have assessed.

Get a thorough understanding of risks ahead of investing

Our IT Due Diligence reports give you a clear view of each technology-related investment risk that we have identified in the assessment process. When we identify value-threatening issues, we always propose actionable recommendations and practical steps to take for the business to remediate these problems.

Discover hidden value creation opportunities

While risk mitigation is crucial, it is not all that matters. Our IT Due Diligence reports detail any meaningful improvement and value creation opportunities that we discover. To bring insight into action, we’ll give you clear and practical steps to unlock these opportunities and grow your investment’s value.

Questions answered against tight deadlines

We understand that no two deals are the same. Ask specific, technology-related questions about your target, and get detailed and insightful answers. The investment world moves fast, and we deliver high-quality assessments even for the strictest deadlines.

The Intechnica Digital Framework

Our Digital Framework was created from insights gained from over 2000 engagements. It captures real-world best practices to assess and benchmark the digital and technical capabilities of a business.

The Digital Framework is at the heart of our reports and enables us to provide rigorous and objective assessments.

Over 60 metrics across six key capability areas

As part of the Digital Framework, we examine over 60 key indicators: assessing people, processes, and technology to capture how well a company exploits technology to increase business value and how well it’s managing risk.

Measured against these metrics, businesses are placed on our recognised Digital Contribution Scale, rating their technology’s ability to meet business goals and create value.

A clear view of risks and how to tackle them

Each issue identified is given a red or amber flag to signal its severity and how much time and resources it will take to resolve it. Based on our findings, we place the target company on our “Risk Rating Scale”, benchmarked against the hundreds of businesses that we’ve assessed.

By communicating problems and recommendations clearly, our assessment gives the business an action plan to tackle the issues that matter the most.
