Overall Satisfaction with TIBCO Spotfire

We use Spotfire to analyze relationships between reservoir engineering, geological and operational data.
  • Spotfire allows quick visualization of large and often complex data sets.
  • Spotfire allows the integration of data from differing oil and gas disciplines that serves as a bridge for analysis, discussion and presentation.
  • Spotfire allows us to look for relationships in our data from different angles quite easily. If we can dream it, we can do it with Spotfire.
  • I wish that Spotfire had a better method of producing a probability distribution chart. I have been through the online workflows, but still wind up using Excel for this most of the time.
  • While I have gotten better with the Custom Expressions, it would be nice to have them simplified a bit more.
I found Spotfire to be more robust (especially with being able to do additional calculations) than Tableau.
  • In-person training
  • Self-taught
I had training at a previous employer, and also found user groups at previous companies to be beneficial.
I think Spotfire is well-suited for any industry or situation. I can't think of any scenarios where it would be less appropriate.
