Decisions about Google Sheets

Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose Google Sheets in their tech stack.

Hey everyone, My users love Microsoft Excel, and so do I. I've been making tools for them in the form of workbooks for years, these tools usually have databases included in the spreadsheets or communicate to free APIs around the web, but now I want to distribute these tools in the form of Excel Add-ins for several reasons.

I want these Add-ins to communicate to a personal server to authorize users, read from my databases, and write to them while they're using their Excel environment. I have never built a website, so what would be a good solution for this, considering I'm new to all of these technologies? I know about the existence of Microsoft Azure, Microsoft SharePoint, and Google Sheets, but I don't know how to feel about those.

I recently started a new position as a data scientist at an E-commerce company. The company is founded about 4-5 years ago and is new to many data-related areas. Specifically, I'm their first data science employee. So I have to take care of both data analysis tasks as well as bringing new technologies to the company.

  1. They have used Elasticsearch (and Kibana) to have reporting dashboards on their daily purchases and users interactions on their e-commerce website.

  2. They also use the Oracle database system to keep records of their daily turnovers and lists of their current products, clients, and sellers lists.

  3. They use Data-Warehouse with cockpit 10 for generating reports on different aspects of their business including number 2 in this list.

At the moment, I grab batches of data from their system to perform predictive analytics from data science perspectives. In some cases, I use a static form of data such as monthly turnover, client values, and high-demand products, and run my predictive analysis using Python (VS code). Also, I use Google Datastudio or Google Sheets to present my findings. In other cases, I try to do time-series analysis using offline batches of data extracted from Elastic Search to do user recommendations and user personalization.

I really want to use modern data science tools such as Apache Spark, Google BigQuery, AWS, Azure, or others where they really fit. I think these tools can improve my performance as a data scientist and can provide more continuous analytics of their business interactions. But honestly, I'm not sure where each tool is needed and what part of their system should be replaced by or combined with the current state of technology to improve productivity from the above perspectives.
