Spotfire Consumer (Web Client)

TIBCO Spotfire Consumer extends the reach of analytics to a broad base of business professionals & decision-makers throughout - and beyond - the enterprise with interactive thin client applications. Consumer renders analytic reports originally configured by business analysts using TIBCO Spotfire Analyst. The zero-footprint web client makes equipping employees and business partners with analytics a snap. It navigates users to known places of insight and discovery, while simultaneously allowing those same individuals to freely explore the data. Rather than simply receiving static reports, managers and distributed decision-makers can ask & answer their own questions on-demand to drive fast insights in the field.

To create these thin-client applications, TIBCO Spotfire Analyst users simply save an analysis to the Spotfire Analytics Library and it’s instantly/automatically available to communities of TIBCO Spotfire Consumer users - No separate publishing step, no need for IT programming.
