    I think that an IT DD is one of the most important DD in the M&A procces. Sometimes the leaders dont have all the ideas clear so afterworks lot of surprises appear in whole the processes that a M&A has.

    What do you think about this?

    IT due diligence is definitely critical diligence and important to have like other due diligence to ensure the identified synergies and integration occurs without additional hidden costs.

    IT DD is a critical aspect of operations for sure. In particular, with this increased level of technological capabilities that are needed for companies to be able to thrive, the IT DD plays an integral role in that process. There are foundational system structures that must be in place prior to the merger transaction.



    IT DD is definitely a critical aspect and I agree gets overlooked for an odd reason. Buyers could be liable for IT agreements (such as leasing equipment stored in a data center), to major security flaws with no cybersecurity policies in place. There could be many more hidden liabilities.

    At a minimal, you also have to merge your IT systems over time. Setting up systems is challenging when stand alone. Trying to get two different organizations onto one system would be one of my biggest concerns.
