Reduce Manual Excel Work ... Automate and Accelerate Data Preparation
Document Format: PDF
Any business analyst will tell you they have a love-hate relationship with Excel. While purpose-built for calculations, graphing and reporting, it has also been the only user-friendly tool available for manipulating data pre-analytics. That's where the "hate" part of the relationship comes in.
Most Excel "jockeys" will tell you that they spend way too much time hand-crafting data: using filters to find flaws, creating pivot tables to find outliers, writing VLOOKUPs, scripting, blending, screaming, and yelling. As the clock ticks and deadlines loom, Excel simultaneously becomes the lock and the key to every analytic exercise.
Accelerate your path to analytics with a modern approach to data preparation. This eBook shows you how.
