Establish Your Spreadsheet Estate

ClusterSeven can scan your infrastructure to locate all your Excel® spreadsheets and other EUCs, including Access® databases. You’ll have the peace of mind of knowing how many there are, and when they were created and modified.

Carry Out A Risk Check

Once you've established the spreadsheets your organization is using, you can carry out a deeper risk analysis on critical files using rules that matter to your business, such as:

  • Formula or macro code complexity.

  • Use of sensitive terms like 'confidential'.

  • Inclusion of unprotected client or personal data.

  • Presence of hidden worksheets.

You can then examine those files more closely to assess their materiality and the associated regulatory, financial, operational or other risk.

Expose Data Lineage

Use ClusterSeven to expose and understand the data lineage of your spreadsheets, and avoid the risk of inconsistencies and errors proliferating across your estate.

For each spreadsheet, ClusterSeven creates a dependency tree showing the data sources and the file’s relationship with other files in your organization.

You’ll be able to see which files are critical to your operations, and gain insight into the associated risks around data and input quality, so that you can take any remediation steps required.

  • Apply a control framework to your spreadsheets and Access databases, to create an audit trail of changes, and see how your files evolve over time.

The increased management control ClusterSeven delivers will help you better manage spreadsheet-dependent processes and reduce the risk of errors.

Our solutions work unobtrusively in the background, monitoring, recording and analyzing changes to files (even if they get renamed), and alerting you to any anomalies so that you can take action. All without changing anything about the agility offered by spreadsheets, or the way people work with them.
