An informed 100 day plan
Our team of experienced CTOs, CISOs, and skilled technologists recently conducted a technology and data due diligence for an African supermarket chain as part of a buy-side transaction. The purpose of this diligence was to inform the Investment Committee and establish the 100-day plan items, as well as identify the 'order of magnitude' digital transformation investment needs as a precursor to a deeper post-acquisition digital strategy roadmap.
These findings may be valuable for private equity investment directors evaluating similar opportunities in the retail sector.
