Technical / Technology Due Diligence
A "360 degree" view of the business and its technology is assessed; strengths and weaknesses of the technology and team are uncovered, market evaluation and differentiators determination are valued. We critically review and assess the strategy, technology, products, quality, process, operations, service, support, management and technical team. A written evaluation is distributed and presented to key stakeholders.
The methodology for this service was developed by our founder, Dr. Karl Schubert, and has been successfully applied to a wide range of technologies over the past 15 years and has been used by many venture capitalists.
Computer Forensics Technology AnalysisInformation technology is now the home of evidence that can be used for or against an organization and consequently is its biggest liability. Computer Forensics Technology Analysis is a service that pro-actively, or re-actively, assesses the "correctness" of a technology solution in a legal sense. That is, does it do what it is supposed to do? Additionally, we can provide litigation support and electronic evidence discovery and bring the best forensic analysis approaches to leverage.
Over the past forty years, Dr. Schubert has been involved in Computer Forensics Technology Analysis including identifying and detecting electronic intrusion, architecting and designing DoD-classified security support in computer systems, and evaluating embedded systems devices for correctness.
Technology Strategy Creation, Analysis, and Review
Technology strategy is the template by which a company, its executive leadership, and the teams responsible for providing services and support can anchor where they are to where they need to be. It is a basis for testing all key decisions: "does this fit into our strategy and does it move us in the right direction?" A properly created technology strategy fully supports the company’s business strategy and financial strategy. Independent review and "course correcting" and/or "fine tuning" the technology strategy to adapt to changing business conditions can provide a significant competitive edge.
||Dr. Schubert has led, assisted, and consulted on the creation of hundreds of strategic plans for corporations, divisions, start-ups, Venture Capital-funded start-ups, industry associations, and non-profit corporations.

Technology Acquisition and Integration
Oftentimes the quickest gains can occur through Technology Acquisition and Integration. This can enable faster-time-to-market and entry into adjacencies if done with proper evaluation, planning, and execution of the technology acquisition and the integration.
Key to success is having the experience to recognize the state in which the technology of interest is, and the requirements for integration. Evaluating the parties involved for technology and business alignment is a critical step in ensuring profitability and success.
Over the past more than thirty years, Dr. Schubert has led teams and been involved in the identification and evaluation of thousands of technologies and has been involved in hundreds of successful Technology Acquisition and Integration projects.
