Spotfire interactive dashboard

Spotfire Desktop contains a user friendly interface for visualising data and creating interactive dashboards, without requiring a TIBCO Spotfire Server.

Spotfire AI driven recommendations.

AI-driven Recommendations

AI powered recommendations, instantly display visualisations for different relationships in your data. Making it faster and easier to get the insights you expect—as well as those that surprise.

Recommendations also help you mashup data from multiple sources in a single visualization—and load, link, categorize, and navigate data.

Spotfire predictive analytics
Built-in Predictive Analytics

Out-of-the-box predictive methods for regression, classification, clustering, and forecasting. Enable everyone with predictive analytics. Visualise input data and results in Spotfire interactive dashboards. Deeper data science calculations are available through TIBCO Data Science or Spotfire Data Functions, which leverage R, Python, SAS, and Matlab code.

Data science engine - TERR

Unique Data Science Language Integration

Build custom predictive models, through Data Functions. TIBCO® Enterprise Runtime for R (TERR) runs inside any analysis. Train R models (or python) and deploy with TERR. Use popular advanced analytics packages and databases. Integrate multiple tables, columns, and values with point-and-click visualizations, not possible with other products.

Spotfire location analytics and mapping

Unparalleled Location Analytics

Bring geographic context to your analysis with instant multi-layer maps, geocoding, and reverse geocoding. Maps help generate insights and make predictions not possible using tables and charts. Deeper geo-analytics can be done, using the built-in R engine and TIBCO® GeoAnalytics.

Real time streaming analytics

Real-time Streaming Analytics

Spotfire Data Streams continually pushes new data to Spotfire for real-time analysis. Create interactive dashboards with real-time IoT (MQTT, OSI PI), social, and messaging (TIBCO, JMS, Kafka) sources, as easily as with static data. Imagine what analytics can do for frequently changing data. To provide a real-time view into your business, continuous updates are pushed to users, enabling analysis and action while it still matters.

Past data can be added for full contextual awareness. Inventory management to financial fraud detection, and ground-staff operations to predictive maintenance, Spotfire® Data Streams augments your intelligence with the power of real-time analytics.
