Deciding between Vertex and Google Sheets
Both Vertex and Google Sheets have a lot to offer and both can accomplish many of the same things - so how should you decide which one to use?
While Google Sheets has been around for years and is a classic Browser-based spreadsheet, Vertex is a new product that uses the heavy-duty Postgres database as its backend, making it suitable for larger tasks that eventually need to integrate with other platforms and handle large amounts of data. Vertex is a modern no-code data platform that can be used both with existing databases and for creating new databases. Google Sheets provides an API and no-code integrations, but does not offer data validation and data integrity whereas Vertex and Postgres can ensure that every cell only stores a very specific type of data. This in turn allows building more complicated apps on top of it and allows scaling the apps to large workloads.
