Spread Your Data OR Pull it All Together? The Answer is Simple!
I think the term ‘spreadsheet’ is appropriate! Oh, there was a time when spreadsheets were considered cutting edge. They were the preferred and, sometimes, the ONLY way to analyze data. You could copy and paste or download data into a spreadsheet to sort information and make business decisions. But the fact is that nearly every spreadsheet lacks integrity, traceability, consistency, security, and compliance, and these factors erode business confidence in the data, analysis and results produced by the spreadsheet solution. ‘Spreadsheet’, indeed. Users spread the data around on the page and hope for the best!
