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.

There's a wide range of uses the tool can provide. Building simple visualizations and dashboards is extremely easy, probably as easy as it gets. More customized visualizations take some time to learn and understand but that's expected compared to other tools.

Out of the box, Spotfire is easily usable for simple report development and display in its web-player. Within 3-6 months complex reports can be built by dedicated developers. After 8-12 months, highly efficient, quick, and extraordinary reports can be developed by a developer. Significant work with your database team is required to produce quick reports that use a data connection with large data sets.

TIBCO Spotfire - data visualization made better

Usability

Initially, it wasn't easy to understand how the system works. It took a few days for me to understand how the input file should be entered in TIBCO. Once I got the hang of it, it was a cake walk. Later I was put in touch with a few experts who assisted me in customizing the looks and feed of each report.

Easy to install & configure. Once installed, very easy to use, intuitive and rich product from the end-user perspective. Keep in mind, the product is for data visualization & analysis and predictive analytics and is not a traditional reporting platform.

TIBCO Spotfire + analytics review

Score 8 out of 10

Usability

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.

I have no complaints about this tool and I am completely thrilled that we have it. It does everything that we needed it to and it does it well. Everyone that has seen the tool is impressed from our internal staff, management and our clients. I highly recommend giving this tool a try if you are looking for a BI tool. You won't be disappointed.

We have several BI tools like Microstrategy, Crystal Reports etc. as well as Tibco Spotfire. It is my job to advise our users as to what would be the best tool to use depending on their requirements. For example, some features are not available in Microstrategy. I do not recommend Spotfire for ad-hoc report purposes because the report builder has to be a developer with technical skills. Users cannot build dashboards themselves; they can only filter the data and export the data, but they cannot build the dashboards. It's not that Spotfire has poor usability, it's just that it requires a developer to build the dashboards.

Excellent Visualization tool

Custom calculations are slightly difficult to follow until you understand the syntax and it becomes easier from there. Also the formatting of charts still has some kinks that need to be improved (as indicated earlier). The formatting and presentation tools are generally pretty good, with great color options etc. But when presenting to C-level executives, there is always a risk that they will focus on unimportant things like misaligned labels.
