QuantCell Releases Beta of Big Data Spreadsheet

QuantCell is a simple to use big data spreadsheet and end-user programming environment

Technology company QuantCell Research has announced the Beta Release of its main product QuantCell 1.3. QuantCell is a simple to use big data spreadsheet and end-user programming environment for doing large-scale analytics. It can be downloaded from the QuantCell web site at: http://www.quantcell.com.

QuantCell Research is targeted at users doing sophisticated analysis on large volumes of data, and for developers. For end users, the QuantCell website touts it as enabling "...non-developers to build complex analysis, models and applications, and it brings the capabilities of major programming languages to the spreadsheet user."

QuantCell Research founder Thorliefsson describes the usefulness of QuantCell 1.3 to developers, "As for Java developers, to them QuantCell is just like any Java IDE." He continued "QuantCell (when used as an IDE) provides [value] with an intuitive spreadsheet interface that helps speed up development, removes the need for UI design and allows for rapid prototyping of analytical solutions. It's an interactive and expression oriented programming environment in which the code is compiled one expression at a time in real time"

QuantCell Research was founded by Icelandic entrepreneurs Agust Egilsson, a University of California Math PhD, and Kris Thorleifsson, a Sun Microsystems veteran. The company appears to be supported by Rannis, the principal Icelandic government source for funding science and technology projects.

The company has not announced a final release date.
