5 Critical Steps in a Technical Due Diligence Process

How to protect your acquisition from the wrong technology fit

How Exactly Does Technical Due Diligence Protect Your Business Against a Bad Acquisition?

Is your acquisition software effectively managing workflows, enhancing customer service, fostering loyalty, and tracking key performance indicators (KPIs)? Does your target company handle crucial aspects such as product creation, production control, stock management, marketing, sales, and distribution?

In today’s business landscape, software plays a pivotal role, making it even more vital to prioritize technical due diligence and ensure that your software acquisition aligns with your business goals.

To safeguard your acquisition from a mismatched technology fit, our team of due diligence consulting experts at Sphere collaborates closely with your acquisitions team. We offer an unbiased evaluation of your potential target, working hand in hand to assess the suitability of the software investment.

Aligning Your Technology Investment Thesis with Technology, Process and People

We take a holistic approach in our technical due diligence assessments, analyzing the three key components of any software and tech acquisition.


Our technical analysis dives deep into the core of a company’s technology stack. We assess the quality of the code, the effectiveness of existing QA practices, and the efficiency of running DevOps processes. Our experts scrutinize the software’s infrastructure, architecture, and integration capabilities to identify strengths, weaknesses, and areas for improvement.


Scalability and maturity of internal processes are crucial for sustainable growth. Our TDD experts meticulously evaluate existing processes, ensuring they can efficiently adapt to increased demand and future expansion. We identify bottlenecks, streamline workflows, and provide actionable recommendations to enhance operational efficiency.


When required, we go beyond the surface level and delve into the talent that drives the software’s value. We evaluate individuals, teams and vendors by assessing their skills, expertise, and compatibility with the software—to inform the alignment of resources with your investment objectives.

At Sphere, We Provide Technical Due Diligence That Delivers

As with any major purchase, it’s important to get a better understanding of what you are buying, before you buy it. This is all the more important for mergers and acquisitions—where proper tech due diligence can mean the difference between a game-changing buy to a nightmare, problem-ridden “lemon” software purchase. 

We provide comprehensive assessments of a target firm’s software development maturity, architecture, and processes, as well as a complete technical debt assessment to ensure complete software due diligence.

And, as investors ourselves, we evaluate hundreds of companies each year. Leveraging this research and experience from our own investments, we provide a unique perspective for companies considering acquisition as a means of growth.
