Overall Satisfaction with TIBCO Spotfire

Being used for teaching data analytics module to students
  • Visualisations such as scatter plots, density plots, and table manipulation and presentation, are very good and useful
  • Regression analysis: training, evaluation and prediction aspects are presented in a very intuitive manner
  • Ability to creation customised user controls using the text area, and also the filters based on the table content are very good aspects
  • Forecasting: Currently we are not able to download forecasted values, nor are we able to see the values using tooltip. Even Excel is able to do a better job for this particular aspect.
  • Classification Tree: Presently there is no graphical output; possible to use r code, but it's cumbersome
  • Logistic Regression: They need to provide users with the choice to either create one model for a single class (based on user choice,) or create a model based on two models (for both classes) and use of method such as Bayesian posterior probability calculations.

Microsoft Excel, MATLAB, Weka, R/RStudio

Spotfire is much more user friendly

  • Students find it easy to use and get started
  • Online training
  • Self-taught

Streambase and Liveview monitor/desktop

Able to show students the development of analytics model and its application on streaming data and running queries on that streaming data.

Well Suited: Spotfire analysis models can be used in Streambase for streaming data analysis.
