Spotfire Enablement Hub: Introduction & Quickstart for New Users

We’re excited to share with you the Spotfire Enablement Hub on TIBCO Community. While TIBCO Spotfire is renowned for being intuitive and easy to use, we realize your users may come from many different backgrounds and experiences. Some may be brand new to using business intelligence tools; others may have a grasp of basic visualizations (scatter plot, line graph, boxplot, pie chart, etc,) but just getting started with more advanced visualizations (waterfall, graphical table, heat map, maps, etc); others might be unfamiliar with adding and replacing data, or utilizing powerful new forms of data wrangling in Spotfire, and so on.

Therefore, this self-paced user enablement series from TIBCO Customer Success is designed to give you and your Spotfire users exactly what they need to get up and running quickly and easily — no matter what level of experience you’re starting from. We accomplish this by using a scaled approach where the videos are split into different sets, depending on the experience of the viewer. Users can progress from the beginning if they are new to this, or jump in at a higher level if that’s more appropriate.

The first set of user enablement videos we’d like to introduce to you is Quickstart, which is targeted for users with absolutely no experience with Spotfire. Quickstart videos are only about twenty minutes in total duration. They make it easy to get the footing on topics such as what is Spotfire, how to interact with a dashboard, how to create a basic dashboard, and sharing and exporting.

Three quick and easy next steps:

  1. Review: Check out the first installment of Quickstart videos
  2. Sharing is Caring: Share these Quickstart videos with folks in your organization who are new to Spotfire
  3. Take Action: Since learning by doing is the best way to retain knowledge, after viewing this content, be sure your new users know how they can access your Spotfire instance to try out what they have learned

In the next blog in this series, we’ll share the follow-up segment called Fundamentals, which is for users with about five hours of experience, and covers the basics of data access, data tables, getting started with visualizations, and more.
