TIBCO Spotfire Review

Customizing data expressions is simple.

Valuable Features

  • Easy data transformations before loading data into Spotfire e.g., pivoting, unpivoting, etc.
  • Simplicity of customizing data expressions

Room for Improvement

Better UX/UI design to make the product look “sexier”. It’s somewhat difficult to add formatting to Spotfire dashboards to make them look nice (e.g. coloring backgrounds of charts, adding floating texts, etc.). This is a bit easier and more customizable in Tableau, and even more customizable in MicroStrategy.

Use of Solution

I have been using it for two years.

Deployment Issues

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

Customer Service and Technical Support

Personally, I have never had to use technical support.

Other Solutions Considered

I was not involved in the evaluation.

Other Advice

Compared to Tableau, it is much more powerful in terms of statistics and analytics, but Tableau is more popular, so there is more support for it online. Spotfire is easier to use for an advanced user, while Tableau is easier to use for a beginner user.
