TIBCO Spotfire Provides Enhanced Data Visualizations And Analytics

Stuart Parkerson Stuart Parkerson in Analytics Wednesday, March 16, 2016

TIBCO’s latest release of its Spotfire data analytics software offers enhancements to core visualizations, an expanded set of built-in data access and data preparation functions, additional collaboration and mashup capabilities, and a re-design of the Spotfire server topology with simplified web-based administration tools. 

Spotfire is a data visualization and analytics solution engineered for exploration. Spotfire allows companies to find and represent insights in their data through visualizations with this latest version offering enhanced graphical data preparation, contextual collaboration, expanded connectivity, and a foundational server architecture overhaul.

New updates and features in Spotfire include:

- Easy Visualizations: Numerous improvements have been made to Spotfire visualizations, including new graphs - such as the waterfall chart – that provide an easier way to illustrate positive or negative changes over time in an aggregated measure. Existing visualizations have improved configurability, including box plots, bar chart segments, and control over the drawing order of markers within scatterplot and map charts.

- Inline Data Preparation: The newly expanded data panel allows users to clean and organize data while analyzing it. These functions include changing data types, formatting columns, inserting calculations, and replacing empty values. A new visual overview of data table structures and preparation steps makes it easier to understand the data sources and methods that support data preparation and analysis.

- Bolstered Scale-Out Architecture: The Spotfire platform has been updated to a set of service nodes that can be started, stopped, and combined into shared resource pools through a simplified web-based user interface. The Spotfire server has been redesigned to simplify administrative tasks while simultaneously adding new scale-out capabilities.

- Enhanced Collaboration & Storytelling: Features such as annotations, bookmarks, and conversation panels make it easier to discuss and contribute to analysis and interpretation. The analysis can be made clearer and attention drawn to specific analysis highlights through the bookmark and annotations capability.
