Overall Satisfaction with TIBCO Spotfire

It is not used internally within our organization, but we helped our clients get it implemented within their organization. I would take an example of a client from the Oil & Gas sector to answer this question and rest of the questions. This client used it within the Planning & Strategy department. It was used to create dashboards for their future planning of demand-supply management.
  • As compared to other similar products (Tableau, PowerBI), Spotfire is more advanced when it comes to integrating with programming languages. In this particular project, all the data was processed in R and this processed data was to be used in dashboards. It was well integrated with Spotfire through TERR.
  • The visual aesthetics of the charts/graphs prepared using Spotfire can be improved when compared with other competing products.
  • Also, the user interface is not very intuitive for first-time users. It takes practice before one gets really comfortable using it.
  • As mentioned earlier, this was implemented for a client's side so it is difficult for me to comment on ROI, in specific. However, given that they have been using it for a long time, it must be adding value to their business.
Not integrated with any other TIBCO products.
Suited for scenarios with:
  • Higher data complexity.
  • Integration with external data.
  • Experienced users.

Not so much appropriate for:
  • Extra-ordinary visual appeal.
  • One-time users.
