A Sweet Spot between Overwhelming and UnderwhelmingWe use it to manage data collected during field work for environmental and geophysical purposes. We collect a lot of data with many aspects to it that is easy to mismanage. TIBCO Spotfire Data Science has been incredibly helpful in organization, analysis, and management of collected data, as well as collaborating with coworkers on the data management and presentation for clients.,It has a great user interface, easy to navigate and learn on the fly. There are lots of great options for data organization and analysis! Makes it a handy tool for presentations as well. A collaborative ability is highly valued for my company where we often work from home or on site. Being able to share the data with those in the office so multiple people can look at it is a great tool!,The visualization aspect of the program can be a little tricky to figure out. It's great to have options but it will take a bit of practice before your figures start looking the way you want (or that's how it was for me). While younger employees like myself may quickly grasp on to the program, the modern interface is difficult for older employees to navigate and get comfortable with. This isn't a problem until you are trying to collaborate with them and things go awry. Perhaps they just need in-depth tutorials to help expedite their learning process. It can be difficult to connect to other databases to import existing data. It's just not an obvious pathway and required some researching before I got the hang of it.,8,There has been a great increase of productivity because of the saved time and streamlined communication about the projects. For a small company, putting our hours to better use is critical while we are still building the business. Once you get the hang of the interface, it saves time. But it can be a time-sucker if there are technically challenged employees trying to figure it out. Cloud-based applications are often trickier to understand if you're unfamiliar with internet applications to begin with, so in some cases the time spent trying to teach or learn the application is too extensive for there to be a real benefit.,Microsoft Office 2016, Google Drive and TIBCO Spotfire,Google Drive, TIBCO Spotfire, Microsoft Office 365TIBCO Spotifre Data Science is perfect for the analyst who likes the Excel feel to analytics, but that comes with the downside on speed and customizabilityTIBCO Spotfire Data Science is used for two purposes. The first purpose is for the many one-off projects that require advanced analytical modeling that can be easily reproduced. The second purpose is for continuous data modeling projects. The software addresses the need to provide insight to executives, while making the analytical process of providing that insight as straight-forward as possible.,Perhaps the best advantage of TIBCO Spotfire Data Science is that the user interface is kind of like Microsoft Excel, and since every analyst has experience with Excel, using TIBCO Spotfire comes naturally. TIBCO Spotfire has an incredible amount of analytical capability. An analyst that's doing web crawling may also use the tool for text mining, random forests, time-series modeling, and a host of other processes. One of the most used aspects of TIBCO Data Science is its very nice graphical capabilities. The graphs are very nice for web and PDF presentations.,Because the software is kind of Excel-ish, it sometimes takes a fair amount of time to run through analyses with big data. The graphics capabilities are fine, although creating user-defined graphics is no easy task. In general, most analysts shy away from creating their own graphs. The software connects to most any data set an analyst uses, but it doesn't connect to everything. And connections are not as smooth as other real-time business analysis software tools.,10,Programming data science projects using R or Python takes a lot more time than it does in TIBCO Spotfire Data Science. TIBCO seems to have thought through what would save the typical analyst time and what the typical analyst does every day. The software is perfect for the analyst who likes an Excel-type interface. For analysts with this background, the tool saves lots and lots of time. It's definitely a positive return on investment for this type of analyst. For an analyst that doesn't know a whole lot about statistics, TIBCO Data Science was a negative return on investment because the time spent figuring out what the different models mean and how to use them was generally a waste of time. The software is aimed at professionals, not amateurs. Perhaps the highest return on investment is from the data mining component of TIBCO Spotfire Data Science. The user interface is awesome, and the many capabilities are perfect for analysts that know and want to do a wide range of analytical tasks.,Airtable, Tableau Desktop, Microsoft R (formerly Revolution R), Google Analytics, SAS Enterprise Miner, SAS Enterprise Guide and Qlik Sense,Microsoft 365 Business, Microsoft R (formerly Revolution R), Microsoft Power BI, Tableau Desktop, Mitel MiCollab, Microsoft SQL Server, TIBCO Data Virtualization, Google Analytics PremiumTIBCO Spotfire Data Science is a team builder!We regularly use TIBCO Spotfire Data Science as a means to share and develop code that we make and use for our geologic informational systems programs.

  • It can be difficult to connect to other databases to import existing data. It's just not an obvious pathway and required some researching before I got the hang of it.
It's well suited for companies who are working long-distance and who have lots of data to organize and present. My company does extensive field work collecting thousands of data points at a time, in many cases, so this is an excellent way to share data collected in the field with those still in the office so that reports can begin before our travels are really finished. It makes the office much more productive!
TIBCO Spotfire Data Science is less suited for companies with older employees or companies that are generally in one office and not doing distance work. It can be a little tricky for older people to grasp the interface and really utilize the program to its full potential so of course spending more time learning the software than using it effectively isn't a great use of time or money.

  • The software connects to most any data set an analyst uses, but it doesn't connect to everything. And connections are not as smooth as other real-time business analysis software tools.
TIBCO Spotfire Data Science is well-suited for academics looking for software that is relatively easy to use to create advanced analytics, companies that need to produce advanced analytical models on a daily basis, and governments interested in understanding their massive amounts of data. The software has been used for web crawling, text analytics, linear modeling, non-linear modeling, advanced graphics, Six Sigma, and many other applications. I don't think the software is appropriate for smaller enterprises that only need simple data visualization and analytics. It would be too much. Additionally, analysts that like complete control over their work through programming may be disappointed with the Excel-ish interface.

We regularly use TIBCO Spotfire Data Science as a means to share and develop code that we make and use for our geologic informational systems programs. We are usually working in VBS script or in Python, so TIBCO Spotfire Data Science is a great tool for multiple people in the lab to work on Python codes.
  • Collaborative interface that allows multiple people to work on the same project
  • Very user friendly
  • Minimum coding
  • Some basic tutorials on coding, such as introduction to Python would be great
  • It would be nice to have a direct output to ArcGIS files
  • An online database of code would be helpful for open sourced products
It is great for working in groups on large projects. I like how you can further organize users into ranks and groupings, which is much more powerful than most other programs. I also like that the userface is very collaborative, which allows greater success in data management. It is a little clunky for small projects or where only a few people are concerned.

  • Collaboration
  • Not much coding
  • Still leveraging big data
We can manipulate big data, data clustering, algorithm, data wrangling, and create workflow by simply using dragging tool, create visuals... In my opinion this tool is all we need and more.
