I followed only the first session and most of my questions were part of the second session so the former didn't answer everything ...

A three day in-person course training session allowed me to go from having no working experience with the application to feeling that I was able to function at or above the proficiency of many long term users within the room. I would highly recommend in-person training to those just beginning to work with the software.

I learned a lot and found a lot of the lessons useful. Sometimes I felt like things were moving a little fast, but it was a fairly good experience. The instructors are usually patient and willing to answer questions. I think there is a lot to learn in these sessions and it was well worth my time.

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.

It was solid training with a good introduction but was a bit like drinking from a fire hose. Almost too much information to fully comprehend and adsorb. The Tibco examples and notes are top notch though and if you make an effort to work through the examples, you can learn a great deal.

TIBCO Spotfire - a great data visualization tool

Training was ultimately good - given our time and capital constraints we had to fit novice training and advanced training into a single session with a shorter timeline than TIBCO would have preferred. This limited the amount of advanced training received.

The in person training I have experienced with the vendor has usually been very good. In the past the west coast representatives would actually offer free on site seminars that are usually very helpful. Because my job role includes training scientists to use Spotfire on a regular basis, we usually do not use training from the vendor.

Robust data engine & standardized visualizations

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.

The on-site trainer really set the foundation for our usage of Spotfire, but that only went so far since he didn't have intimate knowledge of our data. That being said, their "Help" documentation in the desktop client is great! I've learned most of what I needed from the documentation and experimentation.

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).

Also received an in-persona training (at the beginning of the project). This helped me, and all of the project team members to get a clear overview of all TIBCO Spotfire capabilities and functionalities. The instructor was very nice and patient, she really got involved with the group. Slices and learning material great!
