Technology Due Diligence
We give investors an analytical understanding of their technology situation, ways to minimize engineering costs, and opportunities to make strategic decisions that improve their exit return.
The Technology Due Diligence Business Impact
Being aware of the risks and rewards associated with an acquisition allows companies to make the most informed decision regarding a potential acquisition or add-on, and to accurately determine the target’s full potential of an investment opportunity.
Know Opportunities to Maximize Value
Identify the potential of your investments before you buy them. We help you understand ways to build upon existing technology to increase value and compete more effectively.
Reduce Risks and Potential Liabilities
In the case of an add-on, we examine both existing and prospective technologies to offer you the full picture of incoming platforms, so you can prepare for potential risks in advance.
Improve Negotiation Position
With a comprehensive assessment of prospective platforms, you can make educated purchasing decisions and know if a product will add value to your portfolio or not.
Unlock The Necessary Resources
Understanding your next steps and knowing if you will be inheriting technical debt or outdated languages will allow you to prepare for resource allocation.
Make Better Technology Investment Decisions with KMS
Rather than taking a cookie-cutter approach to every assessment, we tailor our assessments to your biggest areas of concern. Our goal is to ensure that you fully understand any potential risks, as well as where your technology investment dollars could be applied to the greatest effect.

Our Technology Due Diligence Approach
We help determine the type and scope of the assessment to meet your needs.
We request artifacts, schedule interviews with stakeholders, and collect data.
We conduct interviews, analyze your data and artifacts, and can perform a code scan.
We prepare and present our transparent findings and recommendations to improve the product.
Benefits of Partnering with KMS
We have extensive experience delivering enterprise-grade software that “pure tech diligence” companies cannot match. We are uniquely qualified to not only assess the R&D function of the business but also well-positioned to help address and resolve issues that are uncovered.
Operators and Investors
What makes our due diligence process different is that KMS has started, operated, and in some cases sold technology business ourselves. We are operators and investors. So we can combine the perspective of an investor and the technical expertise of a leading software development company.
Senior Level Expertise
The team creating our assessments includes our CTO and executive level consultants, not junior associates. You get the benefit of their years of expertise and consultative approach to due diligence.
Between our other private equity services and software development teams, we can take our assessment findings and offer you an integration roadmap and the manpower needed to execute our suggestions.
