TIBCO Cloud Spotfire

Overall Satisfaction with TIBCO Spotfire

It currently isn't being used by the entire company, and we don't have a purchased version of it. I knew of its capabilities and thought it would be a good tool for a project I was working on, so I got a trial version to see if I was correct. And I was! It makes data consolidation and manipulation so easy and just takes a lot of leg work out of certain projects. I was very happy with my trial.

Pros

  • Data consolidation and manipulation.
  • Mapping with data.
  • Makes presenting data visually appetizing, so the audience can easily understand and interpret.

Cons

  • It worked great for what I used it for.
  • Changing the data on the flags in the mapping tool could be easier. I remember that being difficult to figure out.
I find Access to be very NON-user friendly. I've tried multiple times to figure it out and I just don't get it. Spotfire is VERY user-friendly and easy to upload data and manipulate the data to show what you want. There are so many more functions available in Spotfire that I don't even know about compared to the limited options in Access.
  • None, yet.
  • Don't have it company-wide.
  • Time savings on the specific project I got the trial for.
  • Self-taught
Didn't receive any official training.
I found it great for taking in a lot of information about a certain thing geographically, putting it on a map, and allowing the map to be "interactive" in that the flags would show all the details of the item when clicked on, as well as auto-zooming to filtered sections of the map when others are eliminated.
