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.

Spreadsheets are used extensively throughout an organization to collect, analyze, and report on data used for financial reporting, financial planning & analysis, operations, and performance metrics. This webinar will help internal auditors at all levels, as well as spreadsheet owners within the business units, understand the scope of risks to consider. We will discuss how to work within your organization to ensure that practices are in place to:
-Identify the spreadsheets at greatest risk of error
-Identify the most likely candidates for fraud
-Mitigate the risks, and
-Implement a policy that can contribute to the development of more efficient and user-friendly spreadsheets.
Business risks keep multiplying. If your risk management systems can’t keep up, your enterprise will bear the consequences.
Risk management has always been complex, but that complexity is growing at an unprecedented rate due to the sheer size and intricacy of global supply chains, as well as corrupt business practices and the increasing number of cyber threats. Extended or third-party business relationships expose an organization to a number of risks including security, legal and operational risks, and many businesses are completely unaware of the potential impact.
A spreadsheet is a wonderful invention and an excellent tool – for certain jobs.
All too often, however, spreadsheets are called upon to perform tasks that are beyond their capabilities.
Whether you are a basic business user, analyst or programmer IBM SPSS Statistics will help you move beyond spreadsheets to find the answers you need to run your business better, faster, more efficiently and more profitably.

As organisations expand through growth or acquisition, it can be increasingly time consuming to keep using MS Excel for consolidated group reporting.

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.
