Our mission is to accelerate the transition
to a Big Data-driven economy and society

We are Qbeast Analytics. Our name is a tribute to the Cubistic artists that understood the complexity of the world and knew that drawing it realistically, was a limit to expression. They knew that the goal of art was to communicate emotions, not to photocopy their surroundings.

In the same way, we want to revolutionize the focus on Big Data analytics. The goal is to make humans understand information, not to make machines faster in crunching bits.
Qbeast is a spin-off of the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC).

Our roots
Years of research at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center

We faced technical challenges in data analytics that other industries will face only in the years to come. And we solved them. Merging the scalability and flexibility of Big Data software with the superior efficiency of HPC technology results in a new, innovative architecture to store, organize and analyze data.
