The revised version of Spotfire comes with the ability to access and combine new data types, new application data service (ADS) connector to Apache Hadoop, where organizations can seamlessly mashup big data with data from enterprise applications, including those from salesforce.com, Oracle, SAP and others. Through an approach that combines visualization-based and search-based data discovery, end users are presented with a visually engaging unified information access (UIA) experience that incorporates structured, semi-structured and unstructured content – including information from email, documents, text messages, websites, social networking sites and more.
Tibco has claimed that Spotfire will now be able to address both "data at rest" and "data in motion" without using any additional scripting, and enterprises will be able to access the full capabilities of SAS® software-based and MathWorks® MATLAB® software-based analytic models while remaining within the Spotfire interface.
The release also comes with a deployment kit for the iPad, so enterprises and third parties can customize and brand their Spotfire mobile applications for distribution via iTunes. With these capabilities, organizations can design applications based on distinct sets of end users, while providing organizations control on the back end.
Scriptable installation, auto-registration of server clusters, self-recovering authentication connection and simplified configuration, including descriptive error message handling to diagnose situations based on user or process scenarios are all now included within Spotfire for easy installation and administration.
TIBCO Spotfire 4.5 is designed to leverage the full family of TIBCO business optimization and big data solutions, including TIBCO BusinessEvents®, tibbr® and TIBCO ActiveSpaces®. You can get further details on Tibco webiste.
