According to Baseline Consulting, approximately 32% of corporate data is contained in enduser computing (EUC) applications and approximately 68% is stored in IT controlled applications. These EUCs – primarily spreadsheets, PC databases (e.g. Access databases), BI reports, and word documents – are often stored on employee desktops and corporate file shares, and for the most part, are uncontrolled. They lack the proper safeguards and controls one would expect with IT controlled applications, including documentation, version control, back-up and archival, change control, testing, security and access control, and more.
