eDiscovery for your End User Computing / User Developed ApplicationsPrint Version
The first step to controlling critical end-user computing (also known as user developed applications) is to understand what you have, where it is and how it is connected to your business.
ClusterSeven can start by automatically scanning your network to intelligently locate your key spreadsheets and Access databases. Alternatively you can give ClusterSeven specific files and it will ‘Spider’ down the connections to discover all the applications (both end user and central systems) that are feeding them. This builds a complete dependency tree including:
- Excel Spreadsheets
- MS Access® Databases
- Flat Files (csv, exports from Core Applications etc)
- OLEDB Database connections
The true power of ClusterSeven is apparent when you are dealing with large numbers of files with multiple connections or when you want to link eDiscovery to other dynamic business properties as used in Audit Analytics.
In the example below the CFO believed that his top level reporting file (blue) was only connected to four other spreadsheets (green). ClusterSeven highlighted many other connected sheets and broken links. For you ClusterSeven’s server-side power does all the hard work automatically, while other approaches trail behind.Print Version
