Incisive Announces Locator - New Spreadsheet Discovery and Risk Assessment Solution
SAN JOSE, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Incisive, a developer of enterprise-class spreadsheet analysis
and management solutions, today announced Locator, the company's new
solution for spreadsheet discovery and risk assessment. Locator helps
organizations inventory and assess spreadsheet risk on tens or hundreds
of thousands of spreadsheets in a timely and resourceful manner, then
maintain this process over time.
"Discovery is the first critical step for organizations to understand
their true level of spreadsheet risk," said Diane Robinette, president
for Incisive. "After discovery and identification, risk criteria should
be applied to determine the riskiest spreadsheets, then processes and
training best practices may be put in place to manage those
spreadsheets. Locator delivers fast, accurate and comprehensible
discovery of spreadsheets, identifies the riskiest spreadsheets and
allows for rescanning of files for ongoing assessment."
Locator offers many unique features to help organizations through the
discovery and risk assessment processes. When there are multiple
versions of the same file, Locator groups by file version for clear
identification. It offers easy filtering and sorting of spreadsheets,
even by user-defined attributes, so users see only preferred
spreadsheets. Locator leverages Incisive's risk analysis engine which
runs extensive and configurable spreadsheet risk tests to analyze errors
and itemize risk rankings.
Locator offers easily customizable criteria selections for groups of
spreadsheets so risk ranking parameters can be defined based on an
organization's policies and procedures. Spreadsheets are then
categorized with high, medium or low risk rankings and rule violations
are weighted to create an appropriate risk score for the entire
For spreadsheet insight, different criteria may be applied to individual
spreadsheets or groups of spreadsheets and Locator can show which rules
have been violated. In addition, spreadsheet risk tests are
configurable, meaning that tests may be created based on an
organization's own user-defined attributes to find specific risks and/or
errors. Finally, Locator provides transparency into the risk calculation
algorithm so users can see where the results come from and, therefore,
trust the results.
Locator will be available in May 2012. For product demos, pricing and
