A World Beyond Spreadsheets

Atebion is an alternative and complimentary to standard spreadsheets:

Atebion has been designed to replace mission critical spreadsheets, making it easier for the user to build, alter and validate models, giving more confidence to the managers.

Atebion is a numerical processing package for solving modeling problems and has the ability to bring information together from standard spreadsheets, different financial systems and different databases in order to see variances and investigate “What ifs”, all under full control with the minimum of errors.

With Atebion information entry is in many ways similar to that of a standard spreadsheet but unlike a spreadsheet you only need to have a clear understanding of your problem to create or alter models.  Atebion is special in its ability to switch inputs and outputs, exploiting the potential of modern computers for advanced “what ifs”.   

Atebion works on the principle that:

       We identify entities ('Variables' in Atebion) which can be measured in terms of numbers.  Examples: In finance Income, Expenditure, Profit, Cost, Quality, Outcome. In Science and Engineering Density, Mass, Volume.

       We establish rules ('Equations' in Atebion) which relate the Variables. (Example: Profit = Income - Expenditure).

       These Equations represent our world (or the part of it that we have decided to model).

       We then decide which Variables have Known values. (Example: Profit = 42. Income = 1212).

       Within the normal algebraic rules of solubility, Atebion will calculate the Unknowns. (Example: Expenditure = 1170).  We do not need to know how to re-arrange an Equation.

Unlike a spreadsheet, we do not have to decide at the outset which Variables are to be Known (i.e. inputs) or Unknown (outputs).  We have a general model, not a purpose made method of calculating particular answers.

The data and the Logical Rules (expressed in the form of algebraic equations) are clearly separated. The data presentation does not get in the way of the data analysis.
