I am a college professor. I teach a Healthcare Information Systems Applications course where students work on several small community projects. We asked for an educational license for about two months so students could do some training and then use Spotfire for some analysis on their projects. None of the students had used Spotfire before that class. They had all used Tableau, SAS, and Excel for reporting and data analytics.
I had used Spotfire during an internship and wanted to expose my students to this tool. I appreciate how TIBCO worked with me to get educational licenses for my students to use. Students enjoyed having a comparison with Tableau which they had all used.
