Introduction to Dashboard and Decision Support Development
Microsoft Excel has proved itself to be a powerful development platform, and the need for material on advanced Excel development has never been greater. In recent years, however, few books have afforded developers the instruction and depth required to create advanced Excel applications. Two titles in particular, Professional Excel Development by Bullen, Bovey, and Green and Excel Dashboard and Reports for Dummies by Michael Alexander, have given serious focus to these subjects; yet a dearth of quality material still remains. Where printed material has failed to fill this gap, thriving communities and blogs have spawned on the Internet over the last few years devoted to Excel development. Naturally, the last few years have also seen growing interest in data visualization, business intelligence, and data analytics.
