Each Software Engineering IVV™ based engagement is customized to the client’s specific architectures, development stage, resourcing levels, products, methodologies, risk and challenges. This toolset can be leveraged for private equity pre-investment due diligence, internal executive sponsored assessment and improvement projects or reviews for boards of directors.
Several forward thinking organizations are working with BostonCIO’s CTO-practice to leverage the Software Engineering IVV™ toolset for pre-investment due diligence. This allows these proactive clients to uncover issues and begin remediation long before investors and investment bankers are engaged. The eventual due diligence is met with identified issues, strategic responses, scoped remediation and, in many cases, mitigation projects well underway.
