Likelihood to Recommend

Adobe Campaign

It is perfect for anybody who wants to run a highly customized workflow with many branching conditionals. We use workflows to split recipients based on different criteria and send at different times. It is also sophisticated in the ability to use javascript right in the messages to generate dynamic content. It is probably not the best tool out there for people seeking a simple solution to send static emails to a fixed list of recipients.

TIBCO Spotfire

Suitable for even large numbers of data points in both the chemical or biological data domains. Also powerful when calculated columns are to be inserted into tables. The filter and label function is a very powerful feature when subsetting data within one Spotfire project. It is also capable of exporting sheets to PDF format, so it is also convenient to share key findings with others. It is less appropriate for chemical data in less mainstream formats (e.g SDF, MOL2).

Pros

Adobe Campaign

  • Its main strength is automating marketing communications.
  • Adobe Campaign has a very intuitive interface, with several tools displayed in the right menus.
  • It provides the possibility to create any type of campaign, from simple to complex.
  • It comes with some great features, like the email delivery, that works perfectly well and even allows integration with third-party apps.

  • Cross tables. Most people call them pivot tables perhaps, from the excel version, but Spotfire does them so much better! Easier to build and arrange, and with tons more options than the excel pivot table.
  • Mapping. The improved mapping capabilities of Spotfire along with its ease of use, allow you to build fabulous looking maps very quickly.
  • Aggregation. Spotfire is built to aggregate, and it does this better and faster than anything else I know of.

Cons

Adobe Campaign

  • Sometimes there are an overwhelming amount of complex tasks to go through before starting a delivery campaign.
  • Lots of opportunity for failure within email deliveries. Important campaign information is often hidden behind multiple tabs you need to sort through.
  • Very poor in-application email editor.
  • In-application reporting is not intuitive.

TIBCO Spotfire

  • Feature parity between web publishing and the Spotfire client: some features of Spotfire that work flawlessly in the Spotfire client break when published to the web. In particular, custom JavaScript inserted into the analysis tends not to render well on the web even if it renders perfectly in the client.
  • Lack of thorough documentation: particularly when comparing Spotfire documentation to the documentation for Python, JMP, or Matlab, Spotfire's documentation is lacking. In particular, I remember finding documentation on custom SQL queries being very sparse. Most often I would base my Spotfire solutions on examples found on forums rather than on official TIBCO advice.
  • The execution time of custom R data functions: TIBCO Spotfire uses its own implementation of the R runtime (called TERR, TIBCO Enterprise Runtime for R) which I noticed to be significantly slower than the open-source runtime for certain tasks.
  • Error reporting: error reporting by both TERR and IronPython is very opaque and makes debugging very difficult.

Once you go for Neolane you are a bit stuck with it, so we will most likely stay with Neolane. Cost of investment and training are the main factors at work here. We havesimply have invested too much in the product to stop using it after 2 years.That said, my score of 8 does not imply that the product is worthy of getting an 8 but reflects our willingness to renew.Given that upgrading to a new version will cost again a substantial sum, we most likely will keep using the current version we are on which is 6X.

-Easy to distribute information throughout the enterprise using the webplayer.-Ad hoc analysis is possible throughout the enterprise using business author in the webplayer or the thick client.-Low level of support needed by IT team. Access interfaces with LDAP and numerous other authentication methods.-Possible to continually extend the platform with JavaScript, R scripts, HTML, and custom extensions.-Ability to standardize data logic through pre-built queries in the Information Designer. Everyone in the enterprise is using the same logic-Tagging and bookmarking data allows for quick sharing of insights.-Integration with numerous data sources... flat files, data bases, big data, images, etc.-Much improved mapping capability. Also includes the ability to apply data points over any image.

Basic tasks like generating meaningful information from large sets of raw data are very easy. The next step of linking to multiple live data sources and linking those tables and performing on the fly analysis of the imported data is understandably more difficult.

Even though, it's a rather stable and predictable tool that's also fast, it does have some bugs and inconsistencies that shut down the system. Depending on the details, it could happen as often as 2-3 times a week, especially during the development period.

Generally, the Spotfire client runs with very good performance. There are factors that could affect performance, but normally has to do with loading large analysis files from the library if the database is located some distance away and your global network is not optimal. Once you have your data table(s) loaded in the client application, usually the application is quite good performance-wise.

Overall support of Adobe Campaign is subpar. I enter tickets that if are not P1 just sit there for weeks. I usually have to raise any issues to my account success rep before they look good. Priority 1 issues do get looked at immediately.

Support has been helpful with issues. Support seems to know their product and its capabilities. It would also seem that they have a good sense of the context of the problem; where we are going with this issue and what we want the end outcome to be.

I have only had the basic training. It was very useful for new users. The majority of what is taught in the training can be self-taught by daily use of the product. However there were also many things I learned even after using the product for over a year. I would highly recommend investing in the training offered by TIBCO

The online training is good, provides a good base of knowledge. The video demonstrations were well-done and easy to follow along. Provided exercises are good as well, but I think there could be more challenging exercises. The training has also gone up in price significantly in the last 3 years (in USD, which hurts us even more in Canada), and I'm not sure it is worth the money it now costs (it is worth how much it cost 3 years ago, but not double that.)

The original architecture I created for our implementation had only a particular set of internal business units in mind. Over the years, Spotfire gained in popularity in our company and was being utilized across many more business units. Soon, its usage went beyond what the original architectural implementation could provide. We've since learned about how the product is used by the different teams and are currently in the middle of rolling out a new architecture.I suggest:
  • Have clearly defined service level agreements with all the teams that will use Spotfire. Your business intelligence group might only need availability during normal working hours, but your production support group might need 24/7 availability. If these groups share one Spotfire server, maintenance of that server might be a problem.
  • Know the different types of data you will be working with. One group might be working with "public" data while another group might work with sensitive data. Design your Library accordingly and with the proper permissions.
  • Know the roles of the users of Spotfire. Will there only be a small set of report writers or does everyone have write access to the Library?
  • ALWAYS add a timestamp prompt to your reports. You don't want multiple users opening a report that will try and pull down millions of rows of data to their local workstations. Another option, of course, is to just hard code a time range in the backing database view (i.e. where activity_date >= sysdate - 90, etc.), but I'd rather educate/train the user base if possible.
  • This probably goes without saying, but if possible, point to a separate reporting database or a logical standby database. You don't want the company pounding on your primaries and take down your order system.

Alternatives Considered

Adobe Campaign

We selected Adobe Campaign because we are using more products of this company and we thought that this will help connecting all our marketing tools with designers and the marketing department, but the most important reason is that Adobe Campaign workflow tools are more powerful that Mailchimp, and the Magento integration for our eCommerce products is crucial. Now Magento is also part of Adobe, so it makes all sense to use both tools.

The advantage of Spotfire over Tableau or Domo is the advanced modeling capabilities. Although Tableau and Domo have created interfaces with R, they are nowhere near as easy to implement as they are in Spotfire. The advantage of Spotfire over SAS Enterprise Miner is the broader range of easily created visualizations that don't require an experienced data scientist. Spotfire, of course, does not have some of the advanced modeling capabilities of say a SAS Enterprise Miner nor the zooming ability that Qlick Sense offers. Overall, it stacks up well.

Return on Investment

Adobe Campaign

  • Our sales and clicks have drastically risen.
  • We can specifically target what drives our audience, which helps us build and solidify our strategies in the planning phase.
  • Since everything is updated via Adobe Cloud, it can get pricey when working with large amounts of data - especially for smaller businesses.

TIBCO Spotfire

  • Interactive reporting, slice and dice.
  • Time saving as the Web player can be used for analyzing data interactively.
  • Analytics and visualization in the same tool.
  • Primarily business intelligence and reporting costs are saved once it is set up with the ability to dissect data in a useful manner without the need for an extensive reporting team. This is useful in terms of cost savings.
