M&A Software Due Diligence

A successful merger or acquisition requires a comprehensive transition plan, which must include the consideration of the technologies involved. DCG provides software due diligence M&A services to evaluate asset value, integration viability, and risks of the technologies involved.

Our experienced consultants will work with you to develop a seamless transition plan leading to success. We will assure improved financial decision-making based on a quantitative and qualitative profile of the potential software risks and benefits you're facing.

Our M&A services include:

  • Software Asset Due Diligence – A profile of how the target organization relies on its technology. DCG will validate the current state of the target company's software use and internal operating structure, providing recommendations for moving forward.
  • Software Asset Risk Management – An assessment of the risk involved in transitioning the target organization's software. DCG will utilize source code analysis tools to profile the strengths and weaknesses of the software, appraising its ability to support growth, defining potential issues, and assessing the potential financial impact of the transition.
  • Software Asset Maturity Analysis – A profile of the return-on-investment for the acquired software, with an eye to the future. DCG will assess the software for future-state implications, outlining potential expenditures or risks.
  • Software Asset Integration Management – An analysis of how to integrate the acquired software into the current environment. DCG will analyze each target software asset and provide recommendations as to how they should be integrated with existing technologies to achieve revenue goals and avoid unexpected loss of functionality.

Our consultants have successfully led the full IT lifecycle for M&A target assets, both pre- and post-acquisition.


This service is ideal for a CFO or CIO who needs or wants to evaluate the software assets of a target organization for a potential merger or acquisition. The M&A Software Due Diligence is a consulting engagement that relies on expert analysis to evaluate the IT-related aspects of an M&A target, assessing the risks involved and outlining strategies for moving forward with confidence. Unlike other service providers, our experienced consultants improve your decision-making ability based on a comprehensive outline of software-related strengths and weaknesses.
