As CEO of EUCplus, a customisable, cloud-based application which reduces operational risk, Chris Burke reveals new research showing that 53% of firms are failing to take control of their end-user computing (EUC) applications. That is software, usually spreadsheets, built by non-programmers on a users’ desktop. As a result, they are opening themselves up to serious operational and business risk.
Burke shares his concerns about the new research in an article in accountingWEB, and highlights the importance of implementing a formal certification/attestation policy to ensure ongoing compliance.
He believes this is particularly important given the increased cost pressures and competition in all business sectors at the moment. Staying ahead of the game and on top of all regulatory and reporting requirements has never been more important, he says.
EUCplus is a customisable, cloud-based application which reduces operational risk by registering, scanning and securing all spreadsheets, databases and end-user tools in one simple process.
