A review of the implementation to date identified process and control weaknesses and recommended improvements in several areas, including program governance and risk management, design validation, master data governance, resource management, training, and testing. Following mitigation of these risks, a quality and readiness assessment produced recommendations for improvements related to business acceptance testing, user training and business process readiness, cutover planning, master data migration, and go live.
