Build from Excel

Cloud-first applications direct from your spreadsheets and data

As is common in many organisations, spreadsheets are created to maintain just a few items, but they soon grow, often becoming unmanageable and unruly the bigger they get. Maintaining flexibility becomes difficult and integrating into other systems and data sources, a significant headache.

Implementing a single spreadsheet across multiple departments, maintaining brand compliance within documents and managing data and images very quickly becomes an impossible task.

Building cloud-first applications from Excel

See how easy it is to build low-code applications from Microsoft Excel in under 10 minutes by watching episode 2 of our Low-code Live Series.

This episode is based around the rapid building of cloud-first apps straight from your Microsoft Excel sheets complete with the lift and shift of data and includes:

  • Importing both the structure and data from a Microsoft Excel sheet to build a cloud-hosted application quickly.

  • How to use Microsoft Word to create document templates to publish out data from our app.

  • Quickly creating and publishing an API to surface application data to other external systems.

Better manage, maintain and control your data

Building Apps with our low-code platform KnowledgeKube enables you to maintain better and do more with your data compared to using traditional spreadsheets.

Cloud-first applications ensure everyone is using the latest version, no errors exist or are introduced into the calculations, and more importantly, no-one can subsequently tamper with those calculations. And because these apps are so intuitive to use, adoption increases, meaning everyone can access and update your data with ease.

The digital landscape has changed; customers now expect more...

Visible management of processes within spreadsheets, lack of interactive options for customers, limited business rules, user governance, lack of protection and ability for malicious manipulation can all make for poor user experience and overall impression.

By utilising low-code, secured cloud-first apps can easily be updated via web and mobile devices, combine these with great looking user interfaces makes for the very best customer experience possible.

In reality, applications are just a series of expressions and logic. Low-code allows you to focus on your processes, data, calculations and expressions while the platform takes care of the rest.

And with our fully-featured expression parser, if you can use Microsoft Excel, then you'll feel right at home writing KnowledgeKube expressions.

Include string literals and concatenation, variables, constants, arithmetic operators, parenthesis, Boolean operators, common math functions and more while also gaining access to custom roles, states and variables defined within your application.

You can even embed expressions into Microsoft Word documents, providing complete customisation and control of the data surfaced within your applications documents.
