TIBCO Spotfire Data Science Review

Good performance, reporting, and data visualization


What is our primary use case?

We are a solution provider and this is one of the products that we supply to our clients.

This solution is primarily used for reporting. People want to see the data in their database visualized.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the performance.

What needs improvement?

The scripting for customization could be improved.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working with TIBCO Spotfire for five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This is a stable solution.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The platform can be expanded but it is not easy. While doable, it is somewhat complicated to scale. The number of users differs depending on the client, but some of my clients have approximately 1,000 users. It really depends on the size of the organization.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have been in touch with technical support and I am satisfied with my experience.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

The two similar solutions that I have used are MicroStrategy and Tableau.

Tableau is pretty similar and it would be difficult for me to point out the differences.

With MicroStrategy, it has a great feature where you build the representation in the database and it then the tool creates SQL queries by itself. There are more differences between these tools but this is the one essential difference.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward.

What about the implementation team?

Our clients sometimes perform the deployment themselves with the help of documentation. I personally know of some who have done this.

What other advice do I have?

In general, I would say that this is a good tool and I recommend it. I really don't see any pressing features that need to be implemented.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
