It’s going to be her best day, or her worst day ever. This financial analyst has a fantastic opportunity to showcase her knowledge of the business, and a 5 PM deadline. Her firm’s comptroller is preparing an offer to purchase another company, and hand-picked her to finalize the cost projections for integrating the two firms’ operations -- today. Will her report earn her a “thank you” and a cold salad from the cafeteria, or the promotion she’s been seeking?
Using Microsoft Office 365 she brings in all of the cost data she wants to analyze. Concentrating fully in a remote corner of the building, she loses Web access, yet continues working. Her analysis is accurate. Her charts are comprehensive and clear. Certain she has done an excellent job, she shares her report securely.
Working with Google Apps means she must use less data and take a narrower view in her analysis. Not only that, she cannot manipulate data easily like she can with Excel. Working in her noisy cubicle to stay online, less confident in the caliber of her work, and frustrated, she worries whether she can even meet the deadline. Take a look!
