Earlier this year, we polled 252 financial and accounting decision makers to determine what major trends they see emerging that will affect the corporate finance function. In this seven-part blog series, we'll examine each of these developments.
Mark Twain once said in a cable, “The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated,” when his obituary was accidently published in the US press. The same can be said for Excel’s death.

This is true no matter the size of the company. Notably, medium-sized companies feel the strongest that Excel will be around for quite some time.
That's it -- all of the seven trends. Thanks for reading!
