» An innovative alternative for spreadsheet analysis and traditional BI
Even nowadays, spreadsheet is still one of the most commonly adopted “solution” for business-driven data analysis. However, the process is tedious, time-consuming, and error-prone, and is largely dependent upon experienced team members to manually manipulate data and calculate results. Analysis done by spreadsheet is subject to inaccurate insights and inadequate data security.
As for traditional BI, its IT-dependent nature requires IT expertise to work with technologies such as ETL and data warehouse, and to go through the traditional Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) in order to produce the analysis demanded by business. But what business users need the most are ad-hoc and dynamic analytics that can provide just-in-time answers to support their critical business decision making.

» Turn data into actionable business insights, all inside SRK.
Nowadays, many businesses still use spreadsheets to produce and deliver a majority of their ad-hoc and dynamic data analysis, despite the fact that most of them have already invested in costly enterprise BI systems. There is a reason for that.
