A scalable and secure, enterprise-grade analytical platform

What is our primary use case?

At my previous company, I was both a developer and a software administrator. It was an upstream oil and gas company — exploration, drilling, and completion. Due to some financial issues (not being able to compete well in the market), they shut down their Houston office and laid off quite a few people.

Pros and Cons

  • "From a scalability standpoint, I would say it's pretty fantastic."
  • "The design of the UI could be improved."

What other advice do I have?

I would definitely recommend Spotfire. If you're considering using Spotfire, just be sure to implement and scale it properly. Too often, many companies will buy a fantastic product, but they have very immature users. If you're going to buy a strong product, you need to put a strong emphasis on training and developing your users. As a consultant, I've seen a lot of companies that say, "Spotfire can't do this." Sure enough, after I'd look into it, the answer was always undertrained users.

Simple to use out-of-the-box features, but customization is difficult

What is our primary use case?

My daily tasks are related to data mining and TBICO Spotfire is one of the products that I use. We are a small group of geologists operating in a niche area who are analyzing geochemical data. Our backend database is MySQL and we use products such as Power BI, Tableau, and Spotfire to display data for the geochemists.

Pros and Cons

  • "The out-of-the-box features are simple and easy to use across the board."
  • "Personalising Spotfire, as a whole, is painful and is something that could be made easier."

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is implementing Spotfire is to first speak with TIBCO to make sure that your data model and everything that operates in the background is implemented correctly. If it is done improperly then it may render slowly. Don't assume that you know everything, the way we do in my company. There are times when we get something new and because it has to be done our way, we end up breaking it. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

If you have to deploy visualizations you can do it based on the business needs

What is our primary use case?

We have two primary use cases. One is for the data exploration and the second is for deploying the dashboards for the specific business use cases.

Pros and Cons

  • "The two features that I have found most valuable are its ability to customize the dashboards when it comes to the evaluation. The second feature is its ability to handle a large amount of data, which is also something very unique about it."
  • "When it comes to data manipulation, there are features which are good, but one of the features which has really been missing in Spotfire is an offline ability for data manipulation."

What other advice do I have?

I would totally recommend this product. On a scale of one to ten I would rate TIBCO Spotfire an eight.
