This session will provide an end-to-end scenario of how business critical spreadsheets (often referred to as End User Computing applications) can be centrally managed and risk assessed through applications available in the Microsoft Office desktop and server product suite: Compare/Inquire in Excel and Audit & Control Manager in SharePoint. In addition, a reference architecture for End User Computing (EUC) Management and Control - based on SharePoint - will be reviewed backed by examples of actual enterprise deployments.
