TIBCO Cloud Spotfire Enterprise

Overall Satisfaction with TIBCO Spotfire

We would like to use TIBCO Spotfire in our Research Centre at the Hospital for a quick visualization and analysis of the data for projects which do not need the development of ad hoc methods, to be used by users without a computational background. The results were okay, although you always need to take into account the cost related to changing a workflow from what people are used to. In particular, those without a technical background were thrilled to be able to run simple analyses without having to learn how to code.
  • Ease of use
  • Visualization
  • Handling of samples. We would have liked something closer to a laboratory information management system, where samples could be tracked before sequencing. Even tracking the position of a vial in a fridge/rack would be useful for us.
  • Documentation
The other platforms we tried (Redmine, Asana) were too difficult to personalise and did not help us in analysing the data.
  • Saved time on discussions
  • Empowered inexperienced users
  • Self-taught
It allowed me and my colleagues to use TIBCO Spotfire in a satisfactory way, although we reckon that we could use it better if we dedicated more time to it.
No, we did not try any integration with other TIBCO products.
TIBCO Spotfire is well suited for environments where data analysis is standard and can be run through automated pipelines: the final results need to be showed to people who can not write or interpret the analysis details, but want to explore the results independently and put them in the context of published data.
