What is Spotfire

Tibco Spotfire 7: This is new

The Californian software specialist Tibco today released the latest version of its visualization and data analysis tool Spotfire. With Spotfire 7, Tibco Software is pursuing ambitious goals, as Brian Gentile - Senior Vice President and General Manager of Tibco Analytics - indicates: "Spotfire 7 gives you the best possible tool in your hand to work more productively and efficiently with data and to analyze it as quickly as possible to be able to. "

Tibco Spotfire 7: New Features

In addition to an individually adaptable user interface with the new data panel, Spotfire 7 will be suitable for both data analytics experts and newcomers through an intelligent wizard. According to Tibco, the panel offers new functions for searching, classifying and organizing data. The combination of different types of data in groups (for example, sorted by type or importance) should no longer be a problem in Spotfire 7. For experienced Spotfire users, the tried and tested data panel from the previous version is still on board.

Tibco also promises an accelerated workflow with Spotfire 7. This should primarily be guaranteed by a modernized, leaner and, thanks to drag & drop, also clearly user-friendly interface. Business authoring has been improved in many areas and now enables, for example, the creation of mapcharts, previews and the processing of Excel tables. With regard to connectivity, Tibco also reports something new: Spotfire 7 now supports Odata and Amazon Redshift. Security enhancements have also been implemented for cooperation with SAP Hana, Postgres and Hortonworks. (hal)
