I just read an article on Entrepreneur.com that I thought is very true and something that each business should think about in their business processes.
I think that this is something that business might want to consider when they are working on their processes. This is definitely a matter of “right tool for the job”. In many scenarios, products like Excel are great for solving a business need. It is not the solution for every data problem. Spreadsheets have issues that are solved by databases. If you are crunching numbers and doing simple formulas Excel is a great solution. If you are trying to track the inventory in your 7 warehouses across the country Excel probably is not the solution.
Although, it may cost a little bit up front the productivity gains, increased functionality, and removal of many headaches will more than make up for the expense. It’s something to think about.
