Overall Satisfaction with TIBCO Spotfire

The software is very powerful and useful for in depth analysis of large volumes of data. It has multiple ways of visualizing and filtering data that helps to identify trends which are not visible in raw data. Spotfire is somewhat similar to MS Excel and compatible with it but has much greater flexibility and data visualizing power.
  • Data filtering is useful for customizing data sets.
  • Multiple types of flexible visualizations help to discover important trends.
  • Flexible data export function helps efficiently express the results.
  • Learning curve is rather steep.
  • Some mutually-related functions and features can be grouped to make the software more intuitive.
  • Pop-up hints may be useful especially for beginner users.
The training is comprehensive and well illustrated however it is fast paced and sometimes hard to follow for beginners.

It is particularly useful for large multi-parameter data sets where trends are obscure.

It is less appropriate for small or relatively simple data sets.
