Excel vs Power BI
For the Love of a Good Spreadsheet
Love it or hate it, Microsoft Excel remains ubiquitous in UK businesses, from Sales and Marketing calculating commission and tracking market share to Finance reviewing cost saving opportunities. Excel is relied upon from SME’s to some of the UK’s largest and most successful organisations.
We love our VLookups, pivot tables and conditional formatting. But who is this young usurper, coming at the heels of the grand old dame that is Excel? Power BI is the new kid on the block and in what is the most challenging time most UK businesses have ever faced, it may be just the reporting tool you need in these tumultuous times. Watch our webinar comparing the reporting and analytical features of Excel and Power BI.
