Data Intelligence: Getting Modern Means Getting out of Spreadsheet Hell

Data Intelligence: Getting Modern Means Getting out of Spreadsheet Hell

I was going into a client meeting and over heard two employees sharing stories about how they had outgrown Excel. They were essentially complaining that they needed real-time, actionable insights to move faster and gain data intelligence.

They went on to explain their current business reports take hours to create in Excel and the reports are outdated almost as soon as they’re produced because the reports are based on static data. They considered building analyses and conducting deep discovery in Excel a “time suck”. And, in this case, only a few employees know how to set-up complex formulas. Version control is even scarier with the risk of email and spreadsheet sharing without traceability.

They were anxious for data intelligence that didn’t require building pivot tables and computations on spreadsheets, but they didn’t know how to go about looking for a solution that would make sense for everyone and capture the right data for better business decisions.
