Re: I need software for Sales Analysis 

Hi there,

                do you have the facility to download data from a mainframe in CSV or other formay compatible with EXCEL?

I have found this is is the chaepest way of doing sales analysis.

Download all the data avaialble and save that in a worksheet and then copy or reference from that raw data to other tabs within the worksheet to do your macro/micro analysis.

You can create a sales report in Excel manually and use Pivot Table to see the data. The pivot table allows you to view your source data in different ways to combine them or have them evaluate it. Due to the free positioning of the rows and columns in a Pivot Table differing views and analysis are given. Your source data is not changed.

Open source is a good choice like R. But it's a bit difficult to use since its UI is not very friendly. Another similar product is esProc. It can do complex computing and it's cheap. Excel is also not expensive and easy to use.

When you limit your view of requirements to this prescripti...

These are precisely the questions my 8 BAs team and I tried to answer this year. The result was a surprisingly efficient pair of surveys we developed and ...
