Pitching Eviews to Work
Posted: Wed May 28, 2014 5:59 pm
I'm a financial analyst and have a background in econometrics from grad school, I am constantly scratching my head at the confidence and satisfaction that my coworkers have from the data we analyze, mainly with excel. My thoughts are that we can improve our forecasts and analysis greatly with eveiws. I am familiar with Eviews but not so much its capacity, by that I mean its ability to process corporate amounts of data. We use excel primarily and works for a basic purpose, we fetch data using Essbase, which you might need to be familiar with to help me. But would it be necessary to use something like essbase to fetch data for forecasting or can eviews databases manage and easily fetch large amounts of historical data? If you have any ideas or even suggestions one way or the other I would really appreciate it.
