Will I still need to use spreadsheets?

No. Adeaca Project Business Automation helps companies reduce their reliance on point solutions, including Excel spreadsheets, by providing support for critical business processes in one end-to-end system.

No – at least a lot less than you do now. Spreadsheets are great, virtually irreplaceable for certain tasks, and will never be replaced completely. The problem with Excel sheets is when they become an integral part of frequently conducted critical business processes.

Not only is the flexibility of Excel detrimental to the enforcement of corporate governance, Excel workloads often rely on data input from other sources requiring manual mapping, translation and consolidation of data before the workload can be executed and again when the outcome needs to carry over to other processes. This convoluted process means that Excel workloads are executed less frequently than should be. Furthermore, due to lack of process governance and the manual nature of the process, the outcome is always delayed and often flawed causing stakeholders to lose interest and confidence in the data.

Adeaca Project Business Automation helps companies reduce their reliance on point solutions, including Excel spreadsheets, by providing support for critical business processes in one end-to-end system. You will still use Excel sheets when it makes sense for ad hoc tasks, but much less so for daily, weekly and monthly critical processes.
