Data may live in a cloud,
but it works on the ground.
Data is clear and well defined in databases and reference documents. But when it comes out to work in spreadsheets, system software or devices, it's just a string of digits, and the connection to its source and what it means, doesn't stay with it.
But what if every number carried its own description locked inside -- the way text carries its font and point-size? This would change everything - traceability, pedigree and provenance would be a given. Spreadsheet data would be the most, not the least trusted data in the enterprise. New systems and processes would be incredibly easy to implement- with better security and data governance than traditional approaches. Truenumbers makes this a reality.
For business end-users
Truenumbers works right out of the box in finance, engineering or manufacturing where spreadsheets are still an important way to keep business agile. Truenumbers' MS-Office add-in gives users control of changing asumptions and makes MS-Office more traceable and auditable than anything else in the enterprise.
"Any IT executive whose company uses spreadsheets prolifically should be looking at Truenumbers -- any industry — including education, financial services, government, healthcare, insurance, manufacturing, retail, and so on — can benefit from it."
