If you haven’t asked yourself this question, you should.
“Excel is the King when it comes to spreadsheet programs. Why waste time with anything else?”
As a long time user of Excel, I used to have that opinion… until I didn’t.
The way we use spreadsheets is changing. The way we work is changing. Examine how the events of 2020 have changed the way people work.
For many of us, we aren’t in the same room or even in the same city, but we are working together via teleconferences and cloud-based storage for our files.
The ability to collaborate on data at the same time is becoming more natural for users. No longer does each user have a copy of the data, make their changes, then send their version of the data to someone who must blend all the versions.
We want to work together in real-time and make changes in real-time.
For this to work, our spreadsheets are moving online.
