Whether you are looking to grow your current company or have acquired another company, an evaluation of existing technologies can ensure a solid foundation.
Will the Foundation Hold?
As a company expands, it is necessary to ensure the existing software systems can support the scalability and growth of the organization. Due diligence services are for business that are typically in one of the following situations…
You are uncertain about how your current software operates… Is the structure messy or difficult to maintain? Is your software partner able to grow with you? Can your system support your current and future needs? An evaluation of the overall system and underlying structure will determine if your foundation will hold.
You are looking for a second opinion… Technology & software are big investments, people want to know if they are investing their money on the right technology. A second set of eyes will help you determine if you should stay the course or take a new one.
You are not happy with your current platform or provider… Is your current development company able to support you going forward? Is there custom code that has proven to be difficult to maintain? Are you missing out on industry best practices? A pause in the day-to-day with an outside perspective will give you time to evaluate your structure.
A review of existing platforms, custom systems, and off-the-shelf systems can make a big difference in the success of your company’s growth.
If you are unfamiliar with or concerned about how a certain technology works, a third-party evaluation can determine the suitability, quality and strength of the system.
An evaluation of the overall system can help you answer the following important questions…
- Does your system provide what your customers need?
- Is the system’s capacity going to get overloaded? Is it already?
- How old is the system?
- What platforms are being used to support the system?
- Can the servers support current and future loads?
- Are the proper redundancies in place?
- Are the servers in a data center, in-house or in the Cloud?
- What operating systems are in use?
A full evaluation of the overall system will save you major headaches down the road!
