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.
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.
I have been using it for 3.5 years.
Technical support is good.
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.
I can't say; I’ve never had an opportunity to install & configure the server.
I can't say.
It is worth investing in Spotfire.
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.
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.
