Regular, 60 minute presentation

Room: G


A Spreadsheet is an extremely powerful piece of software that is used across all industries for a multitude of reasons. Spreadsheets can be used for storing, managing, and visualizing your business’s data, but are external workbooks really the most effective way to do this? Most applications today have a way for the user to export data to a spreadsheet workbook. Once exported the data can be analyzed and visualized using the spreadsheet software. However, once the data is exported from the application, it is isolated from your database and could be using out-of-date data. In addition to this, external workbooks are un-secure, prone to errors, and have no version control. So how can we harness the power of a spreadsheet while trying to avoid some of the problems that it can cause? We cannot depend on spreadsheets, but they are necessary for our businesses to run smoothly. During this presentation will discuss how we can harness the benefits of a spreadsheet directly within our JavaScript application using a spreadsheet component API. Come see how fast and easy it is to get up and running with a spreadsheet API and learn more about the features and customization abilities a spreadsheet component offers!
