H2O

Most suited if in little time you wanted to build and train a model. Then, H2O makes life very simple. It has support with R, Python and Java, so no programming dependency is required to use it. It's very simple to use.If you want to modify or tweak your ML algorithm then H2O is not suitable. You can't develop a model from scratch.

Spotfire is a more capable analytics tool than Tableau or PowerBI, for example. It makes analysis accessible to non-analytics users and augments Excel well. It also blends data very well. The learning curve is a little steeper but otherwise it best suited for analytics professionals looking to provide visualizations to their work.

Pros

H2O

  • Excellent analytical and prediction tool
  • In the beginning, usage of H20 Flow in Web UI enables quick development and sharing of the analytical model
  • Readily available algorithms, easy to use in your analytical projects
  • Faster than Python scikit learn (in machine learning supervised learning area)
  • It can be accessed (run) from Python, not only JAVA etc.
  • Well documented and suitable for fast training or self studying
  • In the beginning, one can use the clickable Flow interface (WEB UI) and later move to a Python console. There is then no need to click in H20 Flow
  • It can be used as open source

TIBCO Spotfire

  • Functional dashboards which can be understood quickly by those who use them
  • Great visualizations for disparate data sets
  • Ease of integration of multiple data sets into one consolidated data table
  • Linking of standalone data tables with data pulled from an API link through information links
Thomas Plumridge P.Geo | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

H2O

  • Better documentation
  • Improve the Visual presentations including charting etc
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.)

TIBCO Spotfire 5.7
Based on 18 answers
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

H2O

Both are open source (though H2O only up to some level). Both comprise of deep learning, but H2O is not focused directly on deep learning, while Tensor Flow has a "laser" focus on deep learning. H2O is also more focused on scalability. H2O should be looked at not as a competitor but rather a complementary tool. The use case is usually not only about the algorithms, but also about the data model and data logistics and accessibility. H2O is more accessible due to its UI. Also, both can be accessed from Python. The community around TensorFlow seems larger than that of H2O.

The only other tool we use in my course is Tableau. Tableau is very popular regionally (Omaha, NE), runs locally on Mac and PC, is free for students and faculty, and has a web outlet for sharing. It also plays well with AWS. For these reasons, we use it as the primary visualization tool in the course. As I mentioned earlier, we use [TIBCO] Spotfire as an example of another tool that is popular and excellent. I have found that Spotfire is easier for them to use for many tasks, such as quickly building a visual, adjusting variables and data, and synchronizing charts.

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,

Return on Investment

H2O

  • Positive impact: saving in infrastructure expenses - compared to other bulky tools this costs a fraction
  • Positive impact: ability to get quick fixes from H2O when problems arise - compared to waiting for several months/years for new releases from other vendors
  • Positive impact: Access to H2O core team and able to get features that are needed for our business quickly added to the core H2O product

  • For me Spotfire is a huge time saver. I can build the pivot table I need to quickly answer questions here faster and with more confidence than anything else I have seen.
  • The ability to see data in new and creative visualisations instead of just plain tables, allows for better decisions, and cleaner data (you see the mistakes so much easier).
