Performing market evaluations, online research, and other forms of due diligence are key elements of the Ariel methodology. Ariel leverages its vast stores of experience to produce thorough analyses of the issues surrounding a proposed merger or acquisition. The Ariel evaluations cut right to the heart of the issues in the critical areas of people, process, and technology.
Ariel also assists organizations with the procurement of major systems in performing due diligence on the vendor. Some key questions Ariel will answer: Will the product satisfy the requirements of the organization? Will the vendor be there to support the product throughout the period of its amortization? Is the source code held in escrow for the customers? Are there outstanding claims against the vendor? What will it take to implement the vendor’s product in your organization? Let Ariel reduce your risk.
Ariel helps identify an organization’s mission, examine its resources (human, economic and technical) and determine whether the assets can be retooled or replaced to accomplish the mission. Perhaps there is no clear line of sight to success. Often technology is not the key barrier. Frequently, technical shortcomings mask deeper problems: chaotic or self-defeating processes, poor funding models, and untrained or under-motivated personnel.
Ariel is experienced in overcoming these challenges by identifying organizational roles and responsibilities, designing and implementing productive IT processes, mentoring developers, and introducing tools and technologies that motivate developers and reduce unnecessary workload.
Ariel prepares specific, targeted reports that analyze risks and their potential effects. Risk avoidance need not be lengthy or costly. Most risks can be avoided or mitigated simply by adopting a forward-looking risk reduction process that includes proper planning and tracking practices together with simple but effective tools such as a Top 10 Risk List.
