Our speakers from the Data Lab discuss some of the downfalls of spreadsheets – such as version control, vulnerability to errors and difficulty managing complex data sets. They also discuss how more modern data platforms can ensure more accurate data, allow for better integration with different sets of data, and help teams collaborate more effectively.  And if you’re interested in getting support to improve your data use, they also explain what the TORCH service can offer to businesses.
