Structural Complexity & Risk Assessment

Structural Complexity and Risk Assessment are fully customizable tools that capture your file risk.

Typically, defining end user computing (EUC) applications rely on both an assessment of the file’s technical processing complexity and a larger assessment of the file’s impact on the organization. Apparity provides both with its Structural Complexity and Risk Assessment features.

Structural Complexity

The Structural Complexity algorithm is customized to your organization’s needs. Apparity is able to take any of the file attributes gathered from Discovery and add them to this algorithm. The files are then separated into High, Medium and Low complexity ratings. There are many proven benefits of this assessment. Some organizations use this feature to determine the level of EUC controls required. While others use it to determine which files require transfer to certain IT or EUC teams, and some use it as an input for a more qualitative assessment.

Risk Assessment

Apparity’s customizable registration forms serve as a perfect platform for an organization-specific Risk Assessment. This feature weighs variables such as the file’s purpose, relevant regulations, report visibility, and more to perform a more comprehensive assessment of its risk. This can be used in conjunction with the Structural Complexity to combine both complexity and business purpose concerns in a single assessment. Not only does this help an organization achieve certain policy goals, it also provides a more detailed picture of the EUC landscape.
