aand what about security; reqs to store and handle locally and on certain devices
I don't know about everyone else but I have customers who handle sensitive info in excel, on certain devices with certain requirements and security.
Any automatic crap that is not explicitly transparent is not now; nor will ever be allowed.
Bringing in all kinds of AI shenanigans is nice and sexy yet to me displays a lack of customer understanding. Though I work in both segments (financials, telcos, infraprovicers, healthcare) and with solutions (identity management, financial and health info management) for other customers where security is paramount. So my experience might not be valid.
Still I believe if there is automatic / forced pushout of stuff like this we shall se a return to lotus 1-2-3.
