TIBCO Spotfire Services Training Support

Spotfire is a division of Tibco and the formerly public entity went private in September 2014.

Spotfire is a data discovery and visualization BI tool and from the beginning, its focus was the pharmaceutical drug research domain. The company retains a strong presence in that market and of Tibco Spotfire’s roughly 200 customers, most tend to be in data intensive industries like life sciences, oil and gas exploration and financial services.

The product has built-in predictive analytics, an intuitive design for visualizations and excels at processing very large data sets. One gap was the absence of any report production capabilities, but the acquisition of JasperSoft in 2014 solved that issue and has resulted in a more complete BI platform with Spotfire handling data-discovery, location analytics, and mobile KPIs, while Jaspersoft provides pixel-perfect reporting and embedded analytics.

The BI life cycle spans a continuum that begins with large amounts of disparate data and stretches to encompass people, technology, information, analysis, and decision making. The benefits of BI are substantial: new business capabilities for insight, forecasting, planning, agility, and strategy execution.
Realizing benefits is challenging. With many moving parts—infrastructure, technology, data, integration, analytics, applications, metrics, reports, dashboards, scorecards—putting the pieces together in the most effective way is difficult. Learn the basics of BI from end to end, with special attention to two of the most important factors for BI success: planning and collaboration. You are most able to chart a course for BI success when teams and stakeholders share common concepts, use consistent terminology, and contribute collectively to the BI vision.
