Breaking up with spreadsheets: Why they’re bad for business & how to replace them

More and more companies are seeing the value and importance of data across their business. However, most are still using outdated tools to try to communicate that data and move their organisation forward: specifically, spreadsheets.

In collaboration with The Data Lab TORCH team, Traveltech for Scotland are hosting an interactive webinar to discuss why spreadsheets could be holding your business back:

Providing true Scottish examples from both start-ups and long-established organisations, we’ll be highlighting Excel spreadsheet challenges and how they can be solved with modern data platforms.

To make this event as relevant to attendees as possible, the team will encourage pain point and business examples from anyone wishing to discuss their goals/problems. There will also be time for a live Q&A with the full TORCH Advisory team.

In this webinar we will discuss:

  • Why companies use spreadsheets
  • Disadvantages of spreadsheets
  • Alternatives to Excel for large data sets
  • Where to find specific data skills support
