Spreadsheet risk control webinar

Lyquidity Solutions : 08 October, 2008  (Technical Article)
Compliance experts for spreadsheets is holding a webinar on controlling risks associated with spreadsheet errors
Spreadsheets have been a feature of finance departments ever since Visicalc and Lotus123 first stormed onto the scene in the early 1980's. Their appeal was immediate and compelling and they are found to be embedded in almost every financial process and organisation. As a result, most businesses have a high dependency on the integrity of spreadsheets and the individuals who created them.

The problem is that end users with little or no IT knowledge can 'program' complex calculations or repetitive tasks without recourse to the IT department or anyone else. In effect, complete applications can be built without a specification, any documentation or testing and released into production and shared with other users without any semblance of control.

The risks of spreadsheet errors, such as inadvertently overwriting formulae and data are well known but companies do not have to simply accept them. A new breed of spreadsheet management tools is emerging which can mitigate the risk without stifling innovation and business competitiveness.

In this webinar, Gary Simon, FSN's managing editor, taps into the knowledge of Bill Seddon, founder and managing director of Lyquidity, a leading developer of spreadsheet management and monitoring tools to discuss how the latest thinking in spreadsheet management can enhance control and reduce spreadsheet risk.

Join us for a lively 30 minute discussion and opportunity to hear the issues aired in an educational and sales free environment.

Spreadsheet management - hear about the latest developments in controlling spreadsheet risk will be held on Thursday, October 16, 2008 between 5:00 PM and 5:30 PM BST.
