  • Online training
The TIBCO Spotfire learning curve is not steep, and one can pleasantly skill up with Spotfire by exploring various scripting techniques to develop out-of-box visual solutions. It support a lot of modern requirements, and compatible with other solutions. TIBCO Spotfire is also rated top notch in security and information sharing abilities.

In person training initially was great as it got us used to the software and able to ask questions. The online training post in person training worked great as we could go at our own pace and refer to the material later on when we ran into trouble once implemented

Yes that's true to fetch the best results from the tool it is very much required to know the tool very well from a close perspective then only the knowledge we own can go well in terms. So we had online training sessions and a few sessions from the experts as well and after this, we have found our efficiency, productivity, and correct increased by manifold.

We had no training. I asked me colleagues for help. My manager offered to pay for a Udemy course, but nothing else. My team does conduct spotfire classes for other teams sometimes, but that was after I got comfortable with the tool. So I didn’t find it useful.

No formal training other than what could be accomplished via documentation (very thorough) and online sources such as YouTube. Tableau has a much larger user community and hence more freely available resources.

Personally, I got in person training seven or eight years ago, but after that everything has been under online youtube training, reading version control features and so on.
It is a very fast learning curve, you can do simple stuff immediately, and complicated stuff in a week. It introduces you to several worlds that are optional. For example, you can make calculations from the database using data direct database connection (like most of the visualization tools on this segment), or you can do it on the application itself, or send it to a R server using python script. In my personal case, maybe 90% is done on the visualization itself, so it´s faster for the user. The side part is that this way requires [you] to load all data on the visualization and not only aggregated columns.

There was a one day course we took through a TIBCO partner (CADEON), which walked through the basics of TIBCO Spotfire and how to use it. I found this helpful, but not nearly comprehensive enough for my purposes. I have leveraged the online community of users to help me find solutions to most of my roadblocks

  • Online training
  • Self-taught
The Spotfire training has come in two forms - online webinars and self-taught. The online webinars provide interesting updates on what is capable with Spotfire and what others are using the software for. The self-taught training is a bit more difficult than other software tools because Spotfire is less well-known, which means that the online presence is smaller. With that said, I think we've solved most of our issues simply by trial and error. It's one of the advantages of Spotfire - trial and error only leads to new knowledge, rather than breaking the product.

We are a smaller organization so we relied on a few key individuals who have backgrounds in data analysis and software to help train the members of the organization that would be using TIBCO Spotfire. It would have been helpful to have some more formalized training, but being so busy, it would have been hard to find the time to wrangle in all the various members and departments using the software.

I never took the formal training that was offered in our company, as it happened the month before I joined. However, I learned from colleagues and through various web searches/resources. There are a lot of resources out there (Dr. Spotfire, TIBCO Community, etc.) that I use similar to how I figured out advanced functions in Excel. Through this, I became one of the power users within the company.

With the online training that I got, I am able to be more confident to operate the tool without trying to figure out the stuff one by one myself. What is more, the training also give me the ability to make critical modification which helps us to adjust the tool in the future.
