It is suited for social scientists who are more focused on the interpretation that fits in the area of Social Science and Humanity and has nothing to do with computer programming and mathematics

I have found XLCubed to be well suited to most organisation sizes. While we implement against Microsoft Dynamics we have also successfully used XLCubed against all types of data. This includes hospitals, manufactures, distributors and financial services providers. Is not well suited to "live" reports.

  • XLCubed's design grid is very intuitive, allowing our users to begin building their queries right away.
  • XLCubed's recent v10 release includes very effective and attractive small multiple charts. And, since these are connected directly to live data, no time is wasted in copying and pasting data into Excel.
  • XLCubed's web platform allows us to publish data to our third parties in an effective and rapid manner.

Cons
Social Media Research Foundation
  • It would be nice if NodeXL can analyse other type of social media such as Instagram, Facebook and TikTok
  • It would be nice if it is 100 percent stable, as sometimes I have a problem with error in NodeXL when it is processing the data
  • It would be nice if is able to reduce the price for adding Microsoft Power BI in NodeXL

  • The ability for users to build and own their reports has helped to push the concept of a single source of truth, replacing information housed in multiple Excel workbooks. Now users can query the cubes thru XLCubed for that source of truth, reducing the risk of a user working from outdated Excel workbooks.
