Datadeck

DataDeck is an excellent solution for those who need to analyze Google Analytics daily. You can have an exclusive deck for an exclusive GAt account and select the reports and instances needed. No need to go deep into the GA menus anymore. Just pick the info you need and that specify data will be easily available. We feel that sharing the dashboard with our clients does not work well once, sometimes, have difficulties to understand the dashboard and data.

TIBCO Spotfire

TIBCO Spotfire is our go-to for data quality control, data preparation, data visualization, and data analysis. Easy integration of statistical languages, time savings in developing working prototypes, and best of all, ease of use. It is simply a fantastic tool for all of the many roles that we fill here.

Pros

Datadeck

  • With DataDeck we can manage the Facebook Ads campaigns with no need to login to the Facebook Ads Manager dashboard
  • We can easily monitor our MailChimp campaigns straight from the deck
  • All of our Google Analytics accounts can be monitored using DataDeck

TIBCO Spotfire

  • It has the best coding integration (python, R) of any BI product
  • The ability to work with very large datasets (10 mil+) is better than competitors
  • Export options are more complete and have better functionality
  • The data canvas is the best tool to join and transform data vs. competitors

Cons

Datadeck

  • We think the DataDeck dashboard can be a little easier to organize
  • For first time users, they can get lost with all the functionality DataDeck offers
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

TIBCO Spotfire

  • They should have a lower price point for users to access the analyst version who don't require advanced capabilities. For example, a lower price if users just need to do some basic slicing and dicing with their data and not have to the data science functionality (ie. K-means clustering, regression modeling, classification modeling, etc.).
  • Currently, you can't change the font type/color on the axis, which I'm sure will eventually be available in the future as they have a Tibco Ideas portal that they're fairly responsive to and act on. I guess at the end of the day, it's about the data and what insights you get from it.

-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.

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.

The instructor was very in depth and provided relevant training to business users on how to create visualizations. They showed us how to alter settings and filter views, and provided resources for future questions.However, the instructor failed to cover data sources, connecting to data, etc. While it was helpful to see how users can use the data to create reports, they failed to properly instruct us on how to get the dataset in to begin with. We are still trying to figure out connections to certain databases (we have multiple different types).

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

Datadeck

DataDeck definitely makes the reading and analyzing data easier than accessing the GA dashboard.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

TIBCO Spotfire

TIBCO Spotfire stacks up by performing real-time analytics on the transactional databases whereas Tableau Desktop will be great for historical or OLAP databases. TIBCO Spotfire can provide great advanced data science features when connected or integrated using R/Python thus giving a statistical view for reporting. It works smoothly with huge data sets but sometimes the performance may go down when connecting to multiple data sources at once.

In an enterprise architecture, if Spotfire Advanced Data services(Composite Studio),data marts can be managed optimally and scalability in a data perspective is great. As the web player/consumer is directly proportional to RAM, if the enterprise can handle RAM requirement accomodating fail over mechanisms appropraitely, it is definitely scalable,

TIBCO Spotfire

  • We can only use it for the free trial period.
  • I have to 'rebuild' the course sample files and accounts on Spotfire every semester.
  • It is perfect as an excellent alternative to Tableau in the course.
  • We have to use the less powerful Cloud version since the majority of the students have Macs. This means we can't use advanced AI features, for example.
