      It’s been years since I was involved in such work but we essentially BANNED Excel because it’s far too fragile for corporate apps.

      Excel for analysis or one off work? Sure, but SaaS? Nope.

        I know a lot of IT compliance teams still use excel spreadsheets. Same with suppliers where procurement teams have had to copy and reformat suppliers’ spreadsheets to their likings. currently thinking of SaaS app ideas where people still use Excel for complex or cross-department business processes

          Besides the built in problems of Excel.

          -> It’s NOT a database! <-

          As a seasoned IT person you know what happens if Excel is deployed as a company solution (macros break, folk delete, move, lose data.) You learn quickly it’s not a system you would put a company’s life on the line for.

          And it’s costly. Every user requires a license.

      Many businesses cobble together separate SaaS apps for CRM, marketing automation, or project management. This often leads to manually moving data between them using spreadsheets, which is error-prone and time-consuming.
