Overall Satisfaction with TIBCO Spotfire

I work with large organizations on their data/digital transformation. Leveraging Spotfire makes the transition easy and frictionless. We need people to focus on their business goals not on the tech. Spotfire delivers the simplicity and logic that enables that. Learning curve fits within a day. Performance suits any business analytics needs. Visualization is powerful and satisfying to the users who are encouraged to do more. It is a great solution to support transformation in the digital age.
  • Short learning curve with a nice learn-by-doing dynamic.
  • Cool visualisation options that really support decision-making process.
  • Nice data preparation features to feed analytics with better data.
  • Smoother integration with D3 libraries.
  • Easier integration of R on Mac.
Spotfire has a broad feature set which covers all the needs of today's analyst, in one single solution. It could be better at data preparation, but is it its core domain after all?
  • It delivers from a business standpoint. Business users will deliver results.
  • IT overhead sounded a bit heavy at my clients.
  • In-person training
  • Self-taught
Learning the methodology is what had the biggest impact. Data savvy people rapidly get their bearings in the application.
No, not in the companies I worked with.
