Surveys by leading auditors show that over 70% of major businesses are critically dependent on spreadsheets. Efforts to eliminate spreadsheets repeatedly fail due to their fundamental value in closing the gap between business needs and formal IT applications. Nevertheless, this approach causes problems:

  • Audit points on lack of electronic audit evidence (EAE) for control leading to expensive, time consuming audit meetings

  • Regulatory criticism leading to expensive, time consuming reporting

  • Financial reporting mistakes with loss of money and reputation

  • External and client reporting mistakes costing you money and reputation

  • Missed business deadlines while spreadsheets are checked and corrected

  • Poor business and IT relations due to incomplete/delayed information management

  • Erratic delivery of spreadsheet replacement projects such as BI and CPM

  • Slow access to historical business trends and information

  • Exposure to potential fraud
