I would like to see more stock analytic packages in the standard version of Spotfire. Or the ability to download Python analytic packages right into Spotfire. Maybe this is possible and my computer has just limited permissions.
The ability to stack pivot tables of multiple variables into one visualizations. Currently, it works like Excel where pivot tables are hierarchical.
Resizing and moving visualizations around is annoying if you make the page bigger. Its doable, but could be done better
Linking tables would be better if it worked more like Access or PowerBI. You can link a code-description map table to a table with diagnosis codes, but in order to see the mapped descriptions, you need to physically add it to the original table. In Access or PowerBI, the linking works like a SQL join. It seems linking is more for if you had financial data tables of the same structure but for different quarters, and you wanted to link the quarters together.
Spotfire is well suited for most business intelligence needs. I keep hearing that PowerBI and Tableau are doing more advanced analytics, but I do not like PowerBI as a deliverable to a client because it does not look that clean.
