Tech Due Diligence
Understanding your systems to optimise your business
At Elemental Concept, we take the time to understand your business model and goals and gauge how well your current tech systems are fit for purpose.
When investing in a company that is about to scale there is a temptation to believe that the systems and products they have that work today are fit for that growth.
In a rapidly changing technology environment, organisations continually face the need to refactor and transform their processes and systems to meet emerging business requirements. This is a huge risk when you are investing in a company.
This transformation demands specific expertise that is not always available from within the organisation. At Elemental Concept, our skill-sets are both deep and broad, with capability spanning from software design and development to product and technology leadership.
We can parachute in various experts as required to analyse all systems and elements of your business so that you can understand how well they perform today as well as identify what’s needed financially and technologically to enable them to scale.
To understand if your technology and associated systems and practices are fit for purpose and enable you to scale, we drill down into the following areas:
Assess the current setup for the following factors:
Security, availability, scalability, performance, maintainability, cost efficiency, regulatory compliance and reliance on 3rd parties.
Understand alignment of business & tech choices as regards:
Availability, scalability, performance, testability, maintainability and use of 3rd party solutions and software.
Review current code practices to assess the following factors:
Current code quality, storage solutions, languages, libraries and frameworks used as well as future supportability and scalability.
Review current processes to understand and assess:
Current processes, value chain, information flow, development/QA processes as well as programme management, incident management and overall adequacy of documentation
Review current operations to understand and assess:
Core capabilities, organisation structure and any gaps/opportunities within the existing team. We’d also look to understand current tech expenditure and budgets, as well as adherence to regulatory frameworks.
Understand the sources and quality of your data assets:
Current data optimisation, compliance review with data/privacy laws and regulations, current AI processes around deployment and monitoring as well as current database technology, architecture, scalability and auditability.
