BBC confirms Excel rules the world
Well, not entirely but a good portion of it at least. BBC posted a nice article about the powers of Excel and how an error there could make a big dent. This is another call for a better quality in spreadsheets.
The author makes a good point that the days of the Excel's rule are maybe coming to an end with the advances of the Big Data. I do not believe that it will disappear - the Big Data applications are far from the needs of small businesses and organizations. Excel is here to stay. So we'd better keep learning how to use it properly.
