TIBCO Spotfire Review

Powerful tool capable of creating data analysis "templates" or "dashboards".


Valuable Features:

Data visualization: Spotfire is an incredible, powerful tool capable of creating data analysis "templates" or "dashboards", which can be shared globally and can be used to visualize data to make business decisions.

Improvements to My Organization:

We have used Spotfire to monitor test equipment utilization worldwide, and are able to respond to testers that have been identified as "down." This type of analysis also reduces costs because, instead of the test facilities purchasing new equipment, we can work on increasing utilization.

Room for Improvement:

Version 7 was recently released, so I am still not familiar with all the features. However, ease of connecting to Oracle databases and parameterizing the database queries would be useful.

Use of Solution:

I have been using it since June 2011 (five years).

Deployment Issues:

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

Customer Service:

I can't say; I have not reached out to customer service for Spotfire. However, there is an abundance of knowledge online which I have used to solve problems in the past. The online community is pretty active.

Previous Solutions:

The company I previously worked for used Excel for their data analysis and would not consider paying for Spotfire. But, I highly recommend Spotfire if your data analysis needs are pretty extensive.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
