IT Diligence

Benefits of IT due diligence include reduced execution risk within IT organization, lower costs, higher return on IT investments and improved EBITDA visibility. Columbia understands that every transaction is different and our diligence process is regularly tailored to address specific needs of the project sponsor.

Our typical diligence process provides a complete evaluation of the target company’s IT function:

  • Analysis of budget, organization, projects, application portfolio, technical architecture, operations, compliance, governance and more
  • Evaluation of overall health and effectiveness of the IT organization
  • Determine whether IT operating and capital budgets are in line with industry norms
  • Evaluation of scalability of current infrastructure and application portfolio
  • Identification of opportunities in IT to drive revenue or reduce costs
  • 3-5 year capital expenditure projections
  • Identification of meaningful opportunities to outsource all or part of the IT function
