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.

“How Secure Are We?” - the question hangs in the air in boardrooms across the world. The Board is asking the CEO. The CEO is asking the CISO. The Security Team is dealing with adaptations of the question from the Business, Risk, Auditors, Regulators, Clients and Partners. No wonder they’re sick of it. No wonder their scarce security professionals are ground down spending half of their waking hours finding data, learning obscure analysis languages, pasting data into overloaded spreadsheets and building PowerPoint decks. After all, surely they should be doing security instead? Maybe they’ll just go double their salary at a firm down the road….
Only for the inevitable feedback, “That means nothing to us – try again!” It’s expensive. It’s happening.
In this talk Nik will explore the opportunity presented by data science and its application on Hadoop and Spark in order to begin providing answers to this question.
