End-User Computing (EUC) is the realm of spreadsheets, word processing, presentations, email, stand-alone users, individual devices, and file sharing applications like Dropbox. It is fair to say that EUC is not a traditional focus of Data Governance in many organizations, although individual aspects of EUC may be dealt with. However, EUC is so large in most organizations that Data Governance must start to ensure that data management is done appropriately in it. Additionally, regulators are becoming increasingly interested in ECU, which is an additional impetus to address it. This webinar focuses on the major challenges that exist in EUC and how Data Governance can address them. Fundamental questions, such a simply understanding what is a “production” EUC application are discussed. The data life cycle in the context of EUC, particularly data capture and interaction with corporate systems is examined, as is the need for quality of all kinds in EUC, including data quality.
Attendees will learn:
•What End User Computing (EUC) is and why Data Governance urgently needs to address it
•Why EUC environments often cannot be replaced by corporate systems from IT
•Problems that can arise from ungoverned EUC environments
•Basic strategies for governing EUC environments
•Tools and techniques for EUC governance
