"Paranet is a key partner because they are so knowledgable. They can work with the seller’s IT staff to uncover the potential risks in their environment..."James Lines, Thoma Bravo
Our team of 100 carefully selected technology professionals average 10+ years of experience per engineer across a broad spectrum of disciplines, including network infrastructure, cloud strategies, security, mobility, asset management, due diligence and disaster recovery.
Our expert IT Due Diligence analysis will not necessarily kill an acquisition if it finds IT shortcomings, but the output allows better decisions by rating the target company from a technological standpoint. Often, the analysis will generate a to-do list, not unlike a home inspection does with the purchase of a new house, or it generates a suggested adjustment to the purchase price. An expert analysis provides, in essence, the best estimate of the additional investment needed to make the company competitive and scalable. IT due diligence exemplifies the old adage that “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
Effective collaboration between IT and business is critical during a carve-out. During divestiture or while companies are being separated, Paranet can help sort out the IT implications, prioritizing applications and data to be separated and determining IT restrictions and implications for functional areas.
“When Paranet works on a project with us, it’s to identify exactly what’s needed such as software, hardware, network capacity, phone infrastructure, security, etc. It’s a complete discovery process. Everything they find factors into our financial model, our offer price, the timelines, the TSA. We get a holistic view of what it’ll take for the company to operate independently.”
