Microsoft Excel is one of the most widely used business tools around the world. However, using it as a database in an era of teleworking and cloud computing can lead to data exposure, decreased productivity and more.
Excel users benefit from a vast collection of formulas, instantaneous calculations, easy charting and simple customization of fonts and colors. Anyone can input data and make quick reports, so it’s not a surprise that Excel can be seen on almost every computer around the world and continues to be a pillar of the Microsoft Office suite.
Limitations arise when multiple users need to edit files at the same time. Or when there’s sensitive information that other collaborators aren’t allowed to see. Often, it’s simply hard to find the latest version of the “final” file in your inbox.
