Overall Satisfaction with TIBCO Data Virtualization

I have used TIBCO for the organization to extract data from multiple data source, transformed the data to our needs and present the data visually for easy easy read and quick decision. It was used across the organization to solve this issue. However at the time of testing I’m not sure if KPIs option was available.
  • It has many type of data sources to connect to.
  • You can drag and drop connection between table(s).
  • Easy visual of the data.
  • Easy to use.
  • Will be good to have KPIs to view data.
  • The UI looks like management studio….maybe a different look and feel.
  • Be able to create custom calculation.
  • No KPI from what I experienced so far.
  • Stakeholders prefer to visual data that raw data.
  • No on the go app.
Honestly, we decided to use Microsoft Power BI over TIBCO Data Virtualization for our visualization purpose. TIBCO is up against Power BI by having a long list of different data sources compared to the list of data sources available in Power BI. TIBCO is a good tool but for visualization, it is lacking that part.
Never really experience any customer support from TIBCO since we didn’t fully implement the tool in our organization.
We were using Excel to view raw data and decisions were difficult to be made from raw data. Plus we have data from multiple data sources and we wanted a tool where we can bring together data from different locations into one dataset, and build reports and visualizations from the dataset as one data truth.
There are many benefits in having data visualization/ virtualization one of which to see and have all data from multiple location into one place. Decision makers will be able to make formal decision and have the data to back it up. As they said, data is the key in any business to grow.

Do you think TIBCO Data Virtualization delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with TIBCO Data Virtualization's feature set?

No

Did TIBCO Data Virtualization live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of TIBCO Data Virtualization go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy TIBCO Data Virtualization again?

No

TIBCO is well suited to see raw data and how the tables are connected. We used different data sources so it was good to see that TIBCO has a good list of different sources. It has a decent layout but not the best. Easy to navigate but again, it’s similar to MSQL.
