 Spreadsheets are king (and always will be?)

Great article on why spreadsheets are great and why they will never be completely replaced ( http://smartdatacollective.com/raqsoft/117471/spreadsheet-king-business-intelligence-tools ).

To summarize the benefits of spreadsheets are:

  • Not technically challenging to get it onto a machine and start using
  • They have become intuitive, and flexible.
  • Designed for a business person. Most of Excel functionality does not need help from you IT department.
