In many cases, financial users manually cut and paste information from a data warehouse into a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet because it is more intuitive for them than any other reporting tool. However, getting the necessary data from different platforms into Excel can be a time consuming, multi-step process that requires help from the IT department, which address queries for extracting the data and putting it in a data warehouse.
