Business Functions is a function library for Microsoft Excel for Windows desktop that’s been around since 2002.
We think it makes business plans, budgets, structured financings and cashflows more powerful and manageable. We found that using standard functions makes models:
- more adaptable, because a single function call can invoke a large variety of different kinds of behaviour.
- more accurate, because, amongst other things, over the years we’ve built in quite a sophisticated date/time system that models time periods very accurately.

The second dimension is the one you have most control over. And indeed, the growth in the first will be driven by how well you do in the second. As in science, the hard part is not
Simply put, the new world of AI isn’t just for enterprises anymore. The combination of huge computing power advances and a world dominated by cloud-enabled, data-producing devices and apps changed the game. And companies like Salesforce, which have been committed to democratizing the technology of customer relationship management for years, are now doing the same for AI.
So AI is real. But how real? And how does all that matter to a business like yours? Probably the first thing to understand is that the AI people are already experiencing in movie recommendations, driving apps, and voice commands is changing their expectations. And the “they” here is none other than your customer. Quite simply, their experience of AI in consumer apps means they expect you to know more about them so that you can do more for them, even giving them the help and answers they’re looking for before they ask.
