How do people overcome lack of a robust Excel plug-in in Confluence?

One of the biggest hindrance to roll out Confluence completely is people often asking for better Excel plug-ins. Tables cannot

replace excel as people want to do lot of stuff using excel sheets?

What is the work around or any suggestions for a plug in?

Can you use these plugins with JIRA as well? This is a huge issue for our team as well - very cumbersome to manually update JIRA tickets when everyone is filling out data in spreadsheets. Thanks!

Since the last answer, the Play SQL Spreadsheet add-on has also appeared for that purpose. You can see spreadsheets alongside blogs and pages in Confluence 5.

One of the benefits is, when every department has their own data online, you can query each other's data. Please keep me updated whenever you see a usecase that the plugin doesn't fulfill!
