We use it a lot with TIBCO EMS. It works relatively well with that. It is able to gather performance metrics on it. We are using the non-AWS version.

When looking into a product like this, you really need to think not just about what your requirements are today, but to think about it from a requirements point of view for 18 months or two years down the track. Also, think about whether or not you just want to do BI dashboards or real analytics. If it's the latter, then Spotfire's the tool for you. If not, if your company isn't ready for analytics, then you're probably better off getting a cheaper visualization tool. When selecting a vendor the most important criteria are * credibility * time in the marketplace * service support * geographical footprint. I would rate Spotfire at eight out of 10. I still think there is work to done on the visualization side of things. And there is also work to be done on the statistical algorithms.
