What is Excel in data analysis?

The word ‘Excel’ in data analysis points to the usage of Microsoft Excel in analysing sets of data to bring out useful insights from the same. While the usage of Microsoft Excel is common in analytics and brings in a lot of flexibility in analysis; it is not a scalable tool as Excel cannot be used to manipulate or work with large volume of unstructured data. However, for small-scale analysis on tabular data only, Excel can be used as a decent tool for data analysis.
