Pre & Post Implementation Review Services
Nearing the end of an SAP integration project? Our resources can determine if your company is ready to “go-live” by performing a pre-integration review. We examine all components of the SAP integration project to determine the entity's readiness including testing, reporting, training, user documentation and control processes. This service provides added comfort that all the risks of “go-live” are being managed.
Our SAP post implementation reviews identify both the strengths and the opportunities for optimization and improvement in internal controls subsequent to "go-live". We include these in an overall report detailed to a level appropriate for internal use and summarized accordingly for your audit committee.
Pre & Post Implementation Review Focus
Specific areas of focus for SAP Pre and Post Implementation Reviews include:
Ø Project Objectives Review - During long SAP system integrations it is easy to lose track of the original project objectives. We can ensure that the new system is properly fulfilling all requirements of the business users.
Ø System Testing Review - We will review project testing documentation (Quality Assurance and/or User Acceptance Testing) to ensure that all risk-areas were included in testing and properly passed testing prior to SAP implementation.
Ø Data Validation - Data can be lost or corrupted during the SAP implementation of a new system. In the event of a system upgrade, we can validate that all data was migrated correctly, and that nothing was lost in the process. We can also test the interface between systems to ensure that all data is being correctly transferred to the new system.
Ø Application Security - We can investigate the security controls around the SAP system to ensure that access is appropriate and that there are no SoD conflicts.
Ø Controls Documentation - New SAP systems will require new controls for Regulatory Compliance. We can identify and document all the controls used in the new system, and outline plans for how to test them.
