Overall Satisfaction with Spotfire Streaming

We use it for real-time processing of logs and sudo-logs (records created in a database table are fed in real-time to a Spotfire Streaming app). We have apps to monitor the performance of our infrastructure, our processes, and catching fraudulent activity.
  • Windowing and aggregation
  • Ease the UI tool (SBStudio) to create apps which means much faster turn around than coding
  • Tools for debugging
  • App to app communication
  • Fantastic support
  • Not sure it can handle sliding windows and watermark for late arrivals of data (after the window is closed)
  • Efficient development
  • Expensive, though excellent, support
  • Ability to create custom components for our specific irregular process requirement
  • Dataflow
We are using Dataflow (by Google).The development time in Spotfire Streaming is definitely shorter because its GUI based. Dataflow handles late arrivals after the window closes, not sure Spotfire Streaming can do that. Dataflow can run GCP as a managed service which is why we chose that tool for our new product.
Suited very well for real-time processing. Problem is one needs to either write an adapter or pay for an adapter component to consume logs from some sources like Kafka. It doesn't come as part of the package unless you pay for it separately.
