- Easy data transformations before loading data into Spotfire e.g., pivoting, unpivoting, etc.
- Simplicity of customizing data expressions
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.
I have been using it for two years.
I have not encountered any deployment, stability or scalability issues.
Personally, I have never had to use technical support.
I was not involved in the evaluation.
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.
