TIBCO Spotfire provides executive dashboards, data analytics, data visualization and KPI push to mobile devices. It complements existing business intelligence and reporting tools, while midsize organizations can use dashboards and analytics tools. It keeps the total cost of ownership low by allowing users to build once and publish to thousands of users over internet or intranet, as a PDF or as MS PowerPoint reports. It can be deployed either in cloud or on-premise.
Spotfire allows users to define KPIs and send alerts to iPhone or Android phones. This enables teams to collaborate on mobile devices, while management can get timely information and manage by exception.
TIBCO Spotfire is an enterprise-ready, business intelligence and analytics solution with technical roots. It provides connectivity to databases including big-data tools and applications such as CRM, ERP, Excel and MS Access. It also provides native connectivity to R Project for advanced statistical analytics, automation services to automate sending PDF/MS PowerPoint reports and an API and software development kit.
I find that this software is the easiest to work with R, and the visualization/analytical capabilities make it generally worth the cost.
Spotfire has a nice user interface that is easy to figure out and set up automated tasks. Perhaps the biggest advantage of Spotfire over other data visualization tools is its connection with R and the ease in which one can connect R scripts with Spotfire visualizations. The beginning process of visualizing data and the suggested visualizations that Spotfire offers is nice, although it does require a few more clicks if you don't like the suggestions Spotfire suggests.
Spotfire is more expensive than other data visualization software, although I can see why. Spotfire has a host of additional graphical capabilities and analytical capabilities that I think justify the extra cost. It took me a little while to figure out how to set up the analytical models, but once set up, things run smoothly.

It is extremely customizable so we have been able to create efficient templates that fit many of our process development engineering workflows. It links well with other systems to aggregate the data, and then using the tools we have created, we are able to easily line by/color by/trellis by a number of different experimental parameters to understand complex studies and DOEs with ease. It is a huge step up from our old workflow of graphing using Excel.
It can be difficult to learn how to customize complex templates with our giant data sets, so we had to specialize a small team of admins to create templates and troubleshoot issues. However, as an end user, it is very straightforward.

Once I had some training on Spotfire, I never looked back and use it frequently when processing large amounts of data.
I love that Spotfire is able to process large file sizes extremely quickly, which means filtering millions of rows in seconds and making it easy to find and sort filter options. In addition, the visualizations in the tool are practically limitless and allow users to make incredibly complex but extremely useful and informative reports.
Spotfire is not easy to use and requires training from an experienced person to use. It is not nearly as user friendly as its competitors.

Overall TIBCO has saved a lot of time and money by allowing our company to make quicker and more informative business decisions based on the depth of the data we are able to display. Additionally, the ability to import data from a broad spectrum of inputs makes this software a "must-have" for any organization that is serious about its reporting capabilities.
Spotfire is the gold standard when it comes to analyzing and presenting your data in a meaningful way. There are so many robust options and metrics that are at your disposal and once you master the tool, it can really help take your reporting to the next level.
Admittedly, there is a steep learning curve to mastering this tool, but that is to be expected. Once a basic understanding is reached, I do believe that the use will be able to start using some of the more advanced features in no time.
