Fact-based Technology Due Diligence for M&A

Using machine-generated software intelligence enables rapid and deep, ISO-based technology due diligence, in order to lower M&A risks and accelerate value creation.

Black box reality


The software of your target is a maze of technologies, millions of lines of code, thousands of objects. How can your advisory firm know its condition? Guesswork, interviews, traditional tools are only scratching the surface.

MRI-like precision


Without involving developers, CAST technology automatically ‘understands’ the inner workings of complex software systems. It takes all application artifacts, reverse-engineers the internal structures, and provides insights about the software condition. It is the only technology fully applying ISO 5055, the standard for assessing structural integrity of software applications.
