TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ: TIBX) today announced TIBCO Spotfire® has been recognized by the independent analyst group Yphise as providing the best Operational Analytics (OA) solution in comparison with the competition. TIBCO Spotfire was chosen for its ability to empower business users to deploy real-time process-specific analytics applications and streamline business process control across the organization.
 

According to the Yphise report, TIBCO Spotfire is "a comprehensive and flexible solution that meets the needs of many user profiles, from operational user to business analyst. It provides the best coverage of our list of requirements."1

Yphise certified that TIBCO Spotfire is a solution that has the strengths that represent a valuable investment according to the expected benefits by large companies, using an ISO 9001-certified assessment. Yphise came to this conclusion through an examination of four key requirements:

 

  • Exploring the operational data easily;
  • Providing flexible and easy-to-use tools for business users;
  • Allowing intuitive and dynamic analysis; and,
  • Ensuring wide access to analysis and dashboards.

 

The Yphise report states: "We appreciate the interactivity of the [TIBCO Spotfire] solution's user interface, as well as its ease-of-use. The solution was designed for intuitive navigation within operational data. It loads and manipulates the data directly in-memory in order to provide maximum responsiveness to end-users."2

TIBCO Spotfire enables customers to deploy real-time process-specific analytics applications and streamline business process control across the organization. It offers the only event-driven, closed-loop analytics software on the market for achieving actionable, real-time business intelligence (BI). Unlike other products that notify users of problems, but don't initiate an action or fix, TIBCO Spotfire closes the business process improvement loop by automatically preparing an interactive analysis application of a real-time process based on customer-defined rules. Using a single application on their desktop, business professionals can quickly perform root-cause analysis and then revise rule parameters to improve future business performance.

"Recognition by Yphise as the best Operational Analytics solution is testament to TIBCO's commitment to providing the most flexible platform for today's organizations to quickly find new insights across a broad range of users and processes throughout the enterprise," said Lars Bauerle, vice president of Product Management, Spotfire, TIBCO Software Inc. "Our in-memory analytics platform gives organizations the ability to quickly and easily anticipate changes, which can make all the difference in today's unpredictable economic times."
