TIBCO Spotfire Review

Reports that had been tabular are now intuitive and automated. It saves a lot of effort, time & money. I would like to have built-in "event-based" automation.


What is most valuable?

The product’s most valuable feature is its integration with HTML, JavaScript and R, because the integration makes all impossible stuff possible with Spotfire.

How has it helped my organization?

Many reports which were tabular in form are now very intuitive after being converted to Spotfire. Also, they are automated, so it saves a lot of effort, time & money.

What needs improvement?

I would like to have "event-based" automation (without integrating with other tools), e.g., send an email only if some event has occurred.

Even though we can cascade the drop down property control, having a drop down filter would help a lot.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using it for 3.5 years.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is good.

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

I have also used Tableau, which is another wonderful tool for creating reports. But Tibco comes with a complete suite of products. Spotfire can be integrated with other tools in the Tibco suite.

How was the initial setup?

I can't say; I’ve never had an opportunity to install & configure the server.

What about the implementation team?

I can't say.

What was our ROI?

It is worth investing in Spotfire.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I’m not very sure if there is any, but there should be a product with no licensing cost - such as Tableau Reader - that can be used for reading the Spotfire files.

What other advice do I have?

Spotfire is a wonderful product with vast reporting and analytical capability. You must try this solution if you are looking for a tool for developing reports.
