D3.js

D3.js is great for visualizing with medium and small size datasets. It's also great for prototyping visualizations quickly and sharing on the web so others can view it without having to install any software on their machines

Spotfire is very well suited to pivoting data, un-pivoting data, quick map making, and for visual inspections of data.

Pros

D3.js

  • It provides multiple ways of visualizing data easily.
  • It is fast and light on system resources. It is built with JavaScript and visualizations can be easily hosted on the web across browsers.
  • It has a huge community backing it so it is easy to find people to help with whatever you're doing.

TIBCO Spotfire

  • 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

D3.js

  • Has a steep initial learning curve.
  • It is slow when dealing with really large datasets.
  • Not great for making maps.

TIBCO Spotfire

  • Add functionality for colour map (e.g offered in Seaborn Clustermap function in Python)
  • Add functionality to calculate more cheminformatics-like columns like chemical scaffolds and similarity matrix calculations
  • Improve trellis functionality
  • Add functionality to add chemical structure within heatmap plot

Even though Spotfire does have bugs and inconsistencies and other shortcomings, it's certainly doing a great job overall. It provides great value for the money and is user-friendly enough.

There's a wide range of uses the tool can provide. Building simple visualizations and dashboards is extremely easy, probably as easy as it gets. More customized visualizations take some time to learn and understand but that's expected compared to other tools.

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.

It's very responsive. But it doesn't always solve the problem quick enough. And they sometimes try to avoid admitting to having bugs.

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.)

Installtion required some assistance from the TIBCO Spotfire resources. The basic install is fairly straightforward but some assistance is required in integrating it with Active Directory and enabling authentication.

Alternatives Considered

D3.js

Protoviz does not require as much knowledge of programming to build visualizations as with D3.js or Google Charts. Highcharts or AnyChart are other alternatives that are more specific to building charts only
Firaz Peer profile photo

TIBCO Spotfire

Spotfire is a superior platform for data visitation in terms of the number of plots offered, and the ability to import and process far larger data sets (big data) which is an essential feature when working with data from the chemical and biological data domains. It is also easier to export multiple plots from projects to PDF or JPG then compared to other platforms.
