Developing a simple data grid will not be a problem for an experienced programmer, albeit the solutions enterprises are looking for are much more complex.
To design and create a sophisticated tool for data retrieval, visualization and manipulation, you should be ready to spend quite a lot of time depending on the number of specialists in your team and the amount of other work you have to do. Your work itself will generate costs, while it will also contribute to financial losses as you will have to postpone completing other tasks and delay the optimization of workflows with the implementation of your spreadsheet.
These issues as well as the problem of costly maintenance can be easily solved with a choice of a proper API provided by a third party.
While the documentation is available for free, the API can also be used without any fees not only for checking its functionality but also for deploying it in your personal project.
For enterprise projects, Handsontable offers several licensing programs. The standard one is purchased for each developer per application and includes maintenance and support as well as an unlimited number of end users. This option can be deployed internally or as a SaaS product. There is also a flexible offer providing more options such as consulting, training and priority support.
