    • Spreadsheets: The Dark Matter of IT
      Spreadsheets: The Dark Matter of IT Prof. Felienne Hermans, Assistant Professor at Delft University of Technology Recorded: Feb 19 2014 10:00 am UTC 43 mins
    • Spreadsheets are used extensively in industry: they are the number one tool for financial analysis and are also prevalent in other domains, such as logistics and planning. Their flexibility and immediate feedback make them easy to use for non-programmers. But they are as easy to build, as they are difficult to analyze, maintain and check. Felienne’s research aims at developing methods to support spreadsheet users to understand, update and improve spreadsheets. Inspiration was taken from classic software engineering, as this field is specialized in the analysis of data and calculations. In this talk Felienne will summarize her recently completed PhD research on the topic of spreadsheet structure visualization, spreadsheet smells and clone detection, as well as presenting a sneak peek into the future of spreadsheet research at Delft University.

      Bio: Felienne is a professor and an entrepreneur in the field of spreadsheets. Her PhD thesis centers around techniques to extract information from spreadsheets and present that in a visual way, to support users in improving and understanding them. In 2010 Felienne founded Infotron, a start up that uses the algorithms developed during the PhD project to analyze spreadsheet quality for large companies. In her spare time, Felienne volunteers as a judge for the First Lego League, a world wide technology competition for kids.

    • Move to faster group reporting
      Move to faster group reporting Unit4 Partner Millennium Consulting Recorded: Apr 26 2017 9:00 am UTC 24 mins
    • As organisations expand through growth or acquisition, it can be increasingly time consuming to keep using MS Excel for consolidated group reporting. Due to the workload involved in collating and checking multiple spreadsheets, group reporting can’t be done very frequently, is prone to errors and leaves little time for the group finance team to provide suitable analysis and commentary.
      This session will provide an overview of how organisations have managed to free up time within the group finance function for more value-added activities, by switching from spreadsheets to using a specialist application designed for the task.
