In this presentation, Kris Thorleifsson and Agust Egilsson from QuantCell Research describe how their easy-to-use big data spreadsheet and end-user programming environment.

"QuantCell is a big data spreadsheet and an end-user programming tool. It improves turnaround time and enables SMEs to benefit from big data. It enables non-developers to build complex analysis, models and applications, and it brings the capabilities of major programming languages to the spreadsheet user. QuantCell supports real time Big Data frameworks and Apache Hadoop installations. It allows you to build MapReduce analysis or submit real time queries right from the spreadsheet, submit it to a Hadoop server and watch it hack away. The results can be delivered back to the spreadsheet for further analysis and visualization."

  • QuantCell is an end-user programming environment that empowers analysts, researchers and domain experts to undertake more advanced analysis with less reliance on IT specialists. QuantCell brings Big Data analytics, modeling and solutions to the end-user by combining the power of Java with the intuitive spreadsheet environment. It enables the non-developer to immediately unlock thousands of man-years of research and coding by the world’s researchers and institutions, currently locked away in cryptic APIs. QuantCell combines these vast resources of algorithms, methods and processes with an environment that allows users to rapidly prototype, build and deploy analytics to Hadoop cloud infrastructures and Java production systems, directly from the familiar spreadsheet. QuantCell thereby makes quants, analysts and data scientists more productive and shortens time to solution. It reduces costs and complexity associated with advanced analytics and allows organizations with limited IT resources to benefit from Big Data.
