With Spark, Coherent has created a new category to supercharge spreadsheets, the largest source of enterprise Intellectual Property (IP) . We accomplish this through a combination of no-code hyperautomation, DevOps control mechanisms, data intelligence, testing and analysis tools, audit trails, and cloud-native power.
Convert, optimize and scale your spreadsheets
Business analysts keep using Excel while Spark automatically provides governance controls, and integration support — sophisticated optimization means 100-1000 X performance gains at runtime
Control spreadsheet versions, test, analyze & track usage
Enterprise controls for managing Spreadsheets across the organization and ensuring the quality, security and compliance of your implementation
Connect and embed your spreadsheet services
Dramatic acceleration of digital transformation projects through hyperautomation. Spark provides code snippets for more than 20 language implementations ready for integration with Apps, systems and data services
The complete solution for converting, controlling, and connecting business spreadsheets.
Neuron: The intelligent Core
Spark’s intelligent core parses and converts the most widely used spreadsheet functions and coding logic into highly portable web assembly code that can be run anywhere - mobile app, web browser, data cloud, on-premises infrastructure. The conversion process includes optimization that delivers 100x to 1000x performance gains at runtime.
Neuron interprets the end user’s instructions with respect to inputs/outputs and data validation and generates code snippets for more than twenty programming language implementations, dramatically accelerating delivery times and reducing the cost of digital transformation.
Feature-rich and powerful, Neuron works at lightning speed and even sophisticated spreadsheet models can be converted in mere seconds.
And there's no learning curve - Business analysts continue to work in Excel while Spark converts their models to controlled, connected cloud services.

Experience the enterprise controls you need to manage Spark across the organization and ensure the quality, security and compliance of your implementation.
User and project-level access controls
Robust encryption key management
Control external access to models with IP allowlisting
Version control and release management for fully tested/validated models
What happened, who did it, which version was used, what was the underlying spreadsheet logic? It’s all available in the Spark audit trail. Version control as well as sophisticated testing features mitigate risks and put you back in control of your spreadsheets
Audit trail of every transaction and spreadsheet calculation
Search by user/service version/API endpoint/date range
Download and review the underlying spreadsheet logic
Feed API history into corporate retention archives and operational governance systems
Track dependencies, report on test frequency, evaluate impact of a departing employee
Everything you need to ensure your models are correct, exhaustively tested, and nothing broke with a new version. Automate user acceptance testing to reduce weeks to days while drastically increasing coverage and confidence in your spreadsheets
Testbeds automate large-scale quality assurance and what-if scenario testing
Compare results and perform regression analysis
Check data consistency with our analysis tools for Excel
Enforce data ranges
Eliminate errors and confusion inherent in traditional end-user computing (EUC).
Implement change controls by annotating your versions
Manage major vs minor version numbers
Historical versions are stored and always available for review
Rollback to a previous stable version if needed
Leverage Spark services to ensure dependent systems and end-users have the correct version
Connect your Service to Apps, Systems and Services
Embed models in Apps, systems, and data services using automatically generated code snippets.
Integration code is automatically generated during the uploading process
Full API documentation for the new service is available for developers
Swagger and code Snippets for more than 20 language implementations can be copied directly from Spark into your front-end code
The result: business logic can be integrated with other systems and services in a fraction of the time
Every enterprise has specific requirements for the way spreadsheet-based services should be deployed. With Spark customers can choose any combination of on-prem and cloud deployments for testing and production services:
Cloud service tenant
Hybrid cloud/on-prem (separate your test and production services)
The Spark Assistant Add-in for Excel
We love Excel here at Coherent and the Spark Assistant add-in is the perfect addition to your Excel experience.
Upload your spreadsheet from Spark Assistant to generate a connected cloud service
Review data consistency analysis
Compare an open Excel file with a file uploaded to Spark
Run tests and what-if scenario analysis directly from within Excel
