Presentation Transcript

  1. Spreadsheets and Technology Confluence Christopher Scaffidi

  2. When is technology like a river?

  3. Spreadsheets are a “consolidated technology.” “Many things have to come together in order for the technology to fully mature.” --Redwine/Riddle 85 (“RR”)

  4. RR0: Problem = budget optimization 1961-1972

  5. Optimization Algorithms RR1: Solution = hard-to-use techniques 1961-1972 1964-1970’s

  6. Microcomputers Optimization Algorithms RR2: VisiCalc and the turn of the tide 1961-1972 1964-1970’s 1978-1979

  7. Microcomputers Optimization Algorithms Mouse Charting GUI + VGA Graphics Printers Graphics Acc. Animation OO RR3: Enhancement thru the joining of technologies 1961-1972 1964-1970’s 1978-1979 1982-1990’s

  8. Microcomputers Optimization Algorithms Mouse Charting GUI + VGA Graphics Printers Graphics Acc. Animation OO RR4: 1-2-3 & Excel flood the marketplace 1961-1972 1964-1970’s 1978-1979 1982-1990’s

  9. Microcomputers Optimization Algorithms Mouse Charting GUI + VGA Graphics Printers Graphics Acc. Animation OO RR0: End User Software Engineering 1961-1972 1964-1970’s 1978-1979 1982-1990’s 1997-2000’s

  10. Microcomputers Optimization Algorithms Decision Support Systems (DSS) Mouse Charting GUI + VGA Graphics Business Intelligence (BI) Printers Graphics Acc. Animation OO DSS and BI: Other divergences off the main flow 1961-1972 1964-1970’s 1978-1979 1982-1990’s 1997-2000’s

  11. Conclusion: The course of spreadsheet maturation depended on the confluence of other technologies. Cheap Horsepower “The phasing seems rather the same as for technology concepts but one must realize that consolidated technology must, of necessity, lag the maturationof the technology on which it is based.” --RR Conceptualization PeripheralSoftware + Hardware

  12. Where is your work headed? “Five miles meandering with a mazy motion, through wood and dale the sacred river ran. Then reach'd the caverns measureless to man, and sank in tumult to a lifeless ocean.” --Coleridge 1816
