All things in the world of Cleata.
We recently spoke with Open Access Government to discuss the headache of managing disparate datasets stored in excel and csv files. This is a common issue that organisations have, whereby departments actively utilise spreadsheets as a database.

After a lot of hard work, we are pleased to announce that Cleata is available to procure via the Crown Commercial Services G-Cloud 12 Framework. G-Cloud 12 provides public sector bodies the ability to directly procure from suppliers on the framework via a Digital Marketplace.

It appears that 16,000 coronavirus cases went unreported in England following a snafu in relation to using spreadsheets to manage and collate Track and Trace data.
The issue appears to be that the developers used XLS (with a 65,536 row limit) rather than using XLSX, Excel’s file format that has been around since 2007.
This equated to 8 days of incomplete data and an average of 1,980 cases per day missed on average.
The Track and Trace programme is under immense scrutiny by the public and peers alike.
If only there was a system they could have used to issue the data out to Track and Trace teams and see the progress of tracing eh!?
