Technology & Data Due Diligence for an African Supermarket Chain

Technology & Data Due Diligence

Identifying Key Factors for Success.

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.
