This month, we’re looking at what small business has to say about Spotfire. On TrustRadius, a community of professionals sharing software reviews, software discussions, and best practices, one user (an engineer for a company with 1‒50 employees) says:
“Spotfire well worth the investment. We use Spotfire to quickly analyze large data sets. We start by combining the data from multiple public and private sources. The majority of the current business use has been for oil and gas M&A evaluations for clients. In the past, I have used it for oil and gas production engineering and well surveillance activities.”
This user said Spotfire pros include:
- Connects to a wide variety of data sources quickly and easily for non-IT personnel.
- Simple but powerful data transformation and cleanup tools.
- Quick and easy visualization setup.
- Built in tools to customize visualizations, process automation, and perform complex analytics.
A quick note on the second item above. A few months ago, we introduced inline data wrangling. Most analytic projects require that up to 80% of your time be spent wrangling data for the purposes of analysis because data is messy, contains errors, or is not organized for analysis. Spotfire uniquely offers inline data wrangling through a unified visual analysis and preparation interface to help you rapidly clean data while performing analysis. Here’s quick video on it.
