After 43 years, the spreadsheet still reigns supreme within the world of analysis and modeling. To celebrate Spreadsheet Day, we wanted to reflect on the milestones that made the spreadsheet so popular—and powerful.
Over the past 40+ years, the world of analysis has changed faster than the spreadsheet. Data grew more abundant and dispersed, which means every analysis starts with gathering data from all over. Analysis became more collaborative, making versioning essential. And teams became more connected, making integrations with tools like Slack and Notion critical to modern workflow. If we asked any analyst today what their dream spreadsheet could be, they'd say: “I'd want one connected to live data and fully embedded in the ways our teams work.”
So that's what we're doing at Equals.
We're creating a next-gen spreadsheet made for modern analysis. We created this company with tremendous respect and admiration for all those who helped the spreadsheet evolve. And with Equals, we hope to keep the legacy going.
