Executive Summary: In the digital age, digital due diligence is increasingly important in order to assess:
1. Digital business models, processes, IT, risks, and growth potential of the target company.
2. Digital performance of the company in comparison to the main competitors.
3. Digital perception of the brand: The better known and more popular it is, the easier organic traffic can get generated through the company's channels, and customer acquisition costs are lowered.
4. The level of digital maturity and the company's digital know-how.
5. The development of customer behavior is also examined using Big Data.
6. Efficiency and the potential of the target company's online channels.
