Likelihood to Recommend

TIBCO Spotfire

Very well suited for data that has multiple variables or data categories that need simultaneous display. It can be a little overkill for simple graphing; however, even then it offers more control and customization than other Excel or spreadsheet programs. It is also much better at 3D display than Microsoft Excel.

Pros

  • Customization - can change anything about an image from the color to the layout. Much easier than Microsoft products!
  • User friendly - no tutorial or instruction manual necessary.
  • Great data organization - very easy to display even the most complex data in an understandable way.

Cons

  • Sometimes it is difficult to import data from things like Microsoft Excel.
  • It would be nice to have multiple different export file types so that Spotfire can be more compatible with more programs.

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.

Usability

TIBCO Spotfire8.5
Based on 21 answers
The product's interface for visualization is very user friendly and takes minimal learning.If you want to use the analytics part (separate from visualization), there may be a learning curve and the necessary skills required.But for visualization part, very little curve is required and the product is very intuitive.

Reliability and Availability

TIBCO Spotfire8.0
Based on 12 answers
The Spotfire client is very reliable. There are sporadic crashes that are made worse due to the lack of an auto-save. Most product upgrades are uneventful. The one major issue we experienced was quickly responded to by Tibco. Our system admins have indicated that the Spotfire servers and the ancillary web-player systems are reliable, but requires time to learn how to deal with the unique nature of the web player and resource loading.

Considering the amount of data Spotfire supports, and the ability to connect to so many different data sources, the performance is really strong; specially, if you are working with v5.5

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

In-Person Training

TIBCO Spotfire7.7
Based on 52 answers
We've repeatedly subscribed to a two-day in-person training course that focuses on the visualization aspects of Spotfire. While the trainers are reluctant to deviate from the curriculum it has generally received good reviews in helping users venture into the basic aspects of Spotfire. This course does not touch Spotfire's data engine or expressions used with visualizations. We've also had a one-day "ad-hoc" session that focused on Spotfire's data engine. This format was limited to a small group and tailored to dedicated developers. While this was a great course, it is one of the only ways to understand Spotfire's data engine other than trial and error.

Online Training

Based on 54 answers
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.)

Alternatives Considered

Spotfire has stunning visuals; it looks modern and fresh and lets you have nice online features on your webpage that don’t look like [they are from] 1997. It also lets you program specific reports handling the data using other languages like R, so it can be integrated with other tools that generate data and create the reports. With automatic features, the workflow gets easier and you can have different access and levels of security and role specific login, so you can create specific reports with meaningful data for each user instead of having them search for what is useful in a huge report.

Return on Investment

  • For market analytics, it lets you do the same report with better visuals and in less time.
  • Once you design a dashboard, you can have consistent reports that can be easily compared over time.
  • With cloud features, you can see your dashboard anywhere, great for sales presentations or fieldwork.
