TIBCO Software Inc., a global leader in enterprise data, empowers its customers to connect, unify, and confidently predict business outcomes, solving the world's most complex data-driven challenges. Today, TIBCO announced it was named a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Augmented BI Platforms, Q3 2021 report. The study analyzes vendors' strengths in augmented business intelligence (BI), evaluating companies through rigorous research across 25 criteria.

"The worlds of BI, analytics, data science, and data management are colliding and converging, as we innovate and adapt to rapidly changing business ecosystems," said Michael O'Connell, chief analytics officer, TIBCO. "This position as a leader in augmented BI adds to TIBCO's recognition by top analyst firms as a leader in analytics. We see this as confirmation of TIBCO’s hyperconverged analytics vision, where the combination of visual analytics and data science with real-time data results in smarter decisions and high-value business outcomes."

The Forrester Wave™: Augmented BI Platforms, Q3 2021 gave TIBCO the highest possible scores in the criteria of machine learning for citizen data scientists, machine learning functionality for data scientists, natural language query, cloud connectivity and hybrid environments, and translytical low-code app development.

According to the Forrester report, "TIBCO Spotfire fuses all advanced analytics — data science, geolocation, streaming. TIBCO Spotfire packs a formidable set of advanced capabilities in a single platform—an impressive number of complex, highly interactive data visualizations (a differentiator that reference customers point out); advanced geospatial, graph, and network analytics; and about a dozen pre-packaged ML models. The product also includes Spotfire Data Streams, a highly differentiated streaming analytics capability that can be set up simply by connecting to a streaming data source, while most competing platforms require additional integration efforts to achieve the same capability."
