Effective Spreadsheets Databases and Reporting Tools for Financial Professionals

Users and organizations are generating new data at an unprecedented level. More than 90% of the known digital information that currently exists has been generated in the last two years. However, as the amount of data increases exponentially, the amount of functional information is not following at the same rate. Data isn’t useful if it can’t be clearly organized and understood by the target audience. Without processing, data is just a random number on a page, an uninteresting sales figure, or a list of unrelated terms.

Effective Spreadsheets, Databases, and Reporting Tools for Financial Professionals will give participants the necessary skill to turn data into useful information and will examine the newest technological innovations for ways to store, retrieve, report, and analyze data using databases and reporting tools. Financial professionals will walk away from this course with valuable information and insights into understanding, managing, and utilizing data in an organized and meaningful manner.
