People and businesses all over the world rely on Microsoft Excel to process, analyze, and display their data. This classic BI tool has some new modern features. Examples are learned intelligence that organizes your data based on recognized patterns, prebuilt advanced formulas and one-click templates for predictive charts, and real-time collaboration in shared files. You can add fast, automated data management and cloud convenience and security to Excel with the Panoply integration. Panoply manages your data in the only fully integrated cloud service that combines an automated ETL with a data warehouse. It continuously uploads, sorts, and stores all your latest data in one place, saving you time and data prep effort. The Panoply ETL pipeline streams your latest, cleanest data to your Excel charts and graphs, so they always display the most relevant results.
With the Shiny (R) open source BI tool from RStudio, users can create their own interactive websites and dashboards. Host your Shiny web applications on your own server or on RStudio’s hosting service. With Shiny, anyone who knows R can design their own web apps without having to learn programming or web development.
The Shiny R package is user friendly, but you still need to do ETL (extract, transfer and load) work to process your data. Adding Panoply takes care of all the ETL for you. Panoply manages that entire process automatically. It seamlessly delivers your latest sorted and cleaned data to your Shiny web apps.
