IT Due Diligence

IT impacts nearly every business function, so it's imperative to conduct thorough due diligence of your target's IT systems and operation. How can you make an informed purchase without a clear picture of the gaps you're inheriting, the technology and compliance risks you're susceptible to, and the costs related to existing technology and projects?

Our comprehensive due diligence process addresses gaps in technology, IT staffing, and licensing as we help you to identify IT environment risks and determine IT related costs

Our clients say

After going through the acquisition process, we realized there was a great need for an ERP assessment, selection, implementation, and project management. Our interaction with the Plante Moran team, summarized in one word, would be nothing short of professional. They deliver every time, always meet or exceed expectations, and are always available to provide resources – we have been absolutely thrilled. They had no problem interacting at any level of the company, and were able to provide a calm and respective approach that kept the project moving in the right direction. We chose Plante Moran for their broad set of skills and expertise, and their ability to complement our staff who were personally invested in all aspects of the project. Plante Moran was the perfect fit for us because they operate as a large firm with a small firm attitude.
