Although end user computing is easy to create, it introduces a number of serious control concerns around recovery, access control, change management and a lack of development process such as requirements, code review and testing.
Online PR News – 14-March-2014 – New York, New York – Problem: The ease of use of end user computing (EUC) such as (Microsoft Access and Excel) enables business users to directly manage, control and manipulate data. The global introduction of internal control regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley has heightened the awareness of the need for controls over (EUC). Due to their widespread nature even the most efficient EUC best practice is very difficult and costly to implement and sustain. Overall, the challenges with EUC include the risk of misstated financial statements, losses due to errors, lack of recovery and higher risk of fraud.
n-Tier Platform Benefits: n-Tier’s platform enables users to replace and replicate the functionality they have with EUCs.

Delivered as part of a robust enterprise level platform the n-Tier solution enables:
• Large volumes of data to be processed and retained
• Multi user controlled access to data and processes via the platform’s web interface
• The configurability and flexibility required by end user computing requirements
• The controls and reliability needed to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements
Rather than designing, implementing and operating a web of difficult controls and governance, the n-Tier platform can enable a company to move its EUC environment onto a platform that is industrial strength and compliant.
Implementation and Usage: The platform provides the ability to easily define the data sets required for each of the EUCs you need to replace. Supports the quick creation of processes for feeding in data from any of your different systems for each of these EUCs. Define at the user level any data validation, reconciliation, reports, and analysis needed for each EUC data set. In addition the platform provides integrated exception management capabilities not normally found in EUC solutions. The platform allows data from your existing Excel and Access platforms can be easily ported to the n-Tier platform providing a cost effective and smooth transition from your EUC solutions onto the n-Tier platform.
Why n-Tier: The n-Tier platform is flexible enough to replace and replicate a wide range of EUC solutions. Once implemented, the n-Tier platform approach to new and modified reports and controls through configuration replicates the user experience with EUC with all the controls of an Industrial strength application Finally, through the use of the Tier platform’s extensive capabilities, the first production results of your EUC program will be in 3 to 4 weeks.
