Unlike most other things with origins in the mid-1980s, Microsoft Excel is still relevant today, and to an impressive degree. According to a recent study conducted by SourceMedia Research for the software firm Paxata, 68 percent of modern businesses use Excel as their primary data profiling and prep tool. Not too bad for a 34-year-old spreadsheet program.
