Spreadsheets have been around since the 1970s, and they are still a popular tool for organizing data and performing calculations. However, as technology advances, it becomes increasingly clear that spreadsheets are not the most efficient or reliable solution for many tasks. In this article, we will explore why spreadsheets should be replaced by applications & how NoCode-X can help you replace spreadsheets within your organization!
First, let’s look at some of the limitations of spreadsheets. While spreadsheets are good for basic calculations and organizing data, they can quickly become unwieldy as the amount of data grows. Spreadsheets are also prone to errors, as it is easy to accidentally delete or overwrite data. Additionally, spreadsheets are not collaborative, and it can be difficult to track changes made by different users. Additionally spreadsheets have little or no measures in place to keep the data inside them secure which makes spreadsheets a bad solution for many problems.
On the other hand, applications are designed specifically for certain tasks and can handle large amounts of data more efficiently. Applications can also be designed to prevent errors, with built-in validation rules and data entry requirements. Applications are also typically cloud-based and designed for collaboration, with multiple users able to access and work on the same data simultaneously.
Another benefit of using applications is the ability to integrate with other software and systems. For example, an application can be integrated with a customer relationship management (CRM) system to automatically update customer information or with an accounting system to track financial data. This integration can save time and reduce the risk of errors.
Building custom applications for everything in your organization would be be a very expensive plan. At least if you rely on traditional software development methods to create those applications. NoCode-X can help your organization build automation up to 70% faster (read less cost) compared to traditional development. Additionally most of the time there is an of the shelve version of the automation you need in our Hub delivering you even faster results!
