TIBCO Spotfire Review

Gives us the ability to automate manual reports


What is most valuable?

  • Text areas
  • R and automation services
  • Schedule updates

How has it helped my organization?

We were able to automate manual reports, which we then email a report copy to the user's mailbox instead of someone manually creating the report and sharing it in bigger user groups.

What needs improvement?

  • PDF export
  • Print capability and trigger-based events
  • Real time reporting

For how long have I used the solution?

Five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Data refresh got stuck few times.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No, we have 700GB of Web Player Nodes. We have never consumed more than 10% of the available memory.

How is customer service and technical support?

Excellent.

How was the initial setup?

Yes, we had challenges with the firewall, but those were internal. Expect the rest of the setup to be quite straightforward.

What other advice do I have?

Scale the servers based on need and follow standards in developing reports. Reuse information links, columns, filters, etc.
