More on Financial Modeling
Financial modeling in Excel is really a means, not an end. It’s a means to intimately understand how a business works, which the true “end.”
While Modano is designed to decrease the time and risks associated with building financial models, the software still requires that you have a sound understanding of key financial modeling concepts. So, don’t think you won’t still need to learn how to build financial models from scratch!
Still, programs such as the financial modeling software from Modano can make the task of creating financial models much easier. They can also help you create more informative models that present data more clearly.
