n.— «Excel is the most popular decision support tool for business users worldwide. When spreadsheets containing valuable corporate data are duplicated uncontrollably, and then modified differently by different users, each file becomes a separate version of the “truth.” Each one of these fractured versions of the truth is called a “spreadmart.” Coined by Wayne Eckerson in 2002, spreadmart is a word meaning both spreadsheet and data mart.» —“Spreadmarts Bad for Business” eLegal Canton Jan. 6, 2005.
