Excel is not a database

As a data strategy practitioner and academic, the thought of this picture made me freak out 😳

This is not even an option, excel is definitely:

  1. Not a database. There is a reason why Microsoft created Azure.
  2. Not to be used for interactive cross functional reporting. There is a reason why Microsoft has created Powerbi as its reporting tool.
  3. Not a go to for all your data analysis. There is a reason why Sqldb and other tools are created by Microsoft.

I am technology agnostic, I only used Microsoft products to explain why the same company which created Excel has actually created other tools for those use cases, it knows that excel can’t serve them.

There are other vendors like Google, Amazon, Tableau and others in the market which are equally good.

What are the products your organisation uses and are part of its data strategy?
