The Excel® Paradox

Excel® is easy to use, flexible and powerful, making it ubiquitous on the Financial Services desktop.


BUT

Excel® is also singled out by Regulators and Enterprise IT as a dangerous tool, creating unacceptable, sometimes unmanageable risks.


WHY?

Not an Enterprise Data Management Tool
  • Uncontrolled retrieval and storage of data into insecure and unaudited local stores
No version control for critical plugin applications
  • Plugin architecture is insecure and not centrally controlled, causes duplication and divergence
High Release management overhead
  • Frequent packaging and distribution to multiple desktops is onerous and error prone
Poor Performance and Scalability
  • Bottlenecks and failures when trying to process extra-large data sets
