It can open multiple data sources. It is easy to create visualizations.

Valuable Features

  • Being able to open multiple data sources
  • Ease of creating visualizations

Improvements to My Organization

It did not improve the way my organization functions. We have implemented a different solution to meet our need.

Room for Improvement

I’d like to see a more easily embedded version because that’s our need.

Use of Solution

I used it for five years (different versions).

Deployment Issues

I have not encountered any deployment, stability or scalability issues.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Technical support is excellent.

Initial Setup

Initial setup with version 3.5 was very difficult, partly because we were embedding the Spotfire Web Player API and using custom authentication.

Implementation Team

Implementation was done in-house.


We don’t charge for the Spotfire reports individually. It is difficult to calculate ROI, but the product is considered to be expensive.

Other Solutions Considered

We originally chose this product as a tool for our SaaS offering, but its embedding features and level of complexity for a multi-tenant situation were prohibitive.

Other Advice

It is great for enterprise use.
