This blog is about most widely used BI tool in the world, Microsoft Excel!
Our mission is to connect business users to data such that an average Excel user can build his budgeting application, enterprise dashboard or data warehouse reporting with Excel. Such a solution can span from a simple Excel reporting that pulls data from a sheet database using lookup functions to a full fledged enterprise dashboard that sources data from an OLAP cube & can be browsed interactively in the web.
When it comes to dashboard visualization, we are not of the whistles, bells and gauges school of visualization, we advocate best practice in data visualization and effective dashboard charts like sparklines and bullet graphs.
If somebody tells you that you have to leave Excel, buy an expensive dashboard product, invest a lot in IT tools, IT administration, learn SQL and MDX to build an effective dashboard, don’t believe them.
