BI Vendors failed to replace Spreadsheets

Blog: Decision Management Community

Toolbox published an article that, in particular, states: “Once viewed in the dashboard, business users wants to move that data to a spreadsheet. For most of the 2000s, BI vendors fought this desire from business users. BI vendors developed and marketed options that replaced spreadsheets. Fortunately, in the past decade, BI vendors have given up the fight, and BI solutions now work well with typical spreadsheet applications. They work so well that many people skip the BI vendor’s fancy interface or web application in favor of just getting data right into their spreadsheets. For all the glitz and appeal of the BI application interface, getting data straight into the spreadsheet is an excellent self-service interface for business users.
