Overall Satisfaction with TIBCO Spotfire

We used the TIBCO platform to analyze our Summer Learning Academy testing scores to identify areas of growth and deficit within the program. TIBCO allowed for simplicity in data visualization that were difficult to create through Excel or PowerPoint. The easy-to-understand tables allowed for us to easily identify our progress and help secure funding from grants. Data visualization in education is vital and the simpler it is to understand, the easier it is to explain to those that are unfamiliar with academic testing scores.
  • The user-friendly platform is easy to navigate.
  • Excellent customer service and support as well as tutorials.
  • Easy-to-understand tables that allow you to easily organize complex data sets into something more understandable.
  • Professional development opportunities for education professionals and the capabilities of using TIBCO for improvement.
I have not used other products like TIBCO Spotfire.
  • Allowed for us to easily secure grant funding for our academic summer reading program.
  • Allows us to show progress and improvement as well as areas of improvement within our small program.
  • Education administrators within the district are now looking to use TIBCO for other areas to analyze growth.
  • Online training
  • In-person training
  • Self-taught
My father uses this program daily at Pfizer and educated myself and colleagues on how to use the TIBCO platform effectively to meet our needs.
Sometimes data can be too much and the question has to be asked “why am I analyzing this”. Those in education sometimes prefer the “less is more” approach and TIBCO allows for both less and more. The capabilities of the program are amazing but can be overwhelming for some.
