SAP Pre-Implementation Reviews


SAP Pre-Implementation Review focuses on ensuring your organization has the appropriate SAP financial and operational controls prior to go-live. Our highly skilled resources leverage our sophisticated SAP audit tools and methodologies to identify high risk issues and provide actionable remediation recommendations.

Organizations implementing SAP for the first time or adding new SAP functionality to their SAP footprint often wait to perform a SAP pre-implementation review shortly before “go-live”. Frequently, the SAP pre-implementation review uncovers issues that delay “go-live” that were caused early in the implementation life-cycle. In order to identify issues in a timely manor, Winterhawk designed our pre-implementation review services to closely align with SAP’s ASAP methodology so problems can be identified and resolved quickly.
