How to Integrate Automated Controls in a Hybrid Agile SAP S/4HANA Implementation
Many organizations have now started their journey to SAP S/4HANA or are currently in the midst of an implementation. It is important to integrate controls early in the implementation, rather than going through the effort of trying to incorporate these after go-live. This is referred to as a “design in” approach, opposed to a “retrofit” approach. Controls are integrated throughout the implementation and design decisions are augmented with real time controls input. Controls are verified with a specific focus in testing and training and confirmed with post go live reviews.
