Devart Excel Add-ins

One of the biggest benefits of Excel is its primary function: The ability to organize large amounts of data into orderly, logical spreadsheets and charts. With the data organized, it's a lot easier to analyze and digest, especially when used to create graphs and other visual data representations. Excel crunches numbers almost instantly, making batch calculations much easier than working things out yourself with a calculator. Depending on your understanding and skill with Excel, the formulas and equations are used to quickly compute both simple and complex equations using large amounts of data.

It suited for data loads that can be handled via spreadsheets without much validation on the data base side of the application environment. I would not use this to load gigabytes of data but for operational use where key strokes can be reduced and errors minimized, it is fine. This replaces the need to key stroke in Oracle Forms.

  • Easy to install and maintain. After the initial installation, there is little involvement by the technical administrators.
  • Cloning production to a test environment does not require any additional setups unlike Oracle EBS which does.
  • Loading data and reporting on this data is handled via EXCEL spreadsheets which is the "language" of our financial users.

Cons

Devart Excel Add-ins

  • It has room for improvement in terms of security and making it possible for large organizations like us to use it in a more secure way with integrating with our in-house security systems.
  • Pricing could be reduced further for it to be adopted world-wide.
  • it isn't foolproof. Excel has no means of checking for human error during data entry, which means that the wrong information can skew all the results - sometimes severe.
  • Users unfamiliar with Excel syntax may also find entering calculations and calling up other functions a bit frustrating until they get a solid understanding.

  • Really cannot think of anything I would have them do differently. It does not require any intervention by the data base or system administrators after initial installation which is quite easy and bug free.

Alternatives Considered

Devart Excel Add-ins

Devart Excel stacks up very well against its alternatives. It has significant advantages as it keeps getting an update. Features are very much suitable for smaller organizations. For larger organizations the features cannot be used directly because of the size of the company and more native requirements of IT software requirements.

Return on Investment

Devart Excel Add-ins

  • It had a positive ROI as we used it on its strengths. We could save time and make some of our processes simpler.
  • It does help us up to a certain limit - but it acts as a part of our general IT infrastructure. It cannot solve our direct business objectives.
  • It cannot be expanded in all directions as we need a lot more native coding and IT infrastructure.
