Spotfire 4.0 is available

Sat, November 26, 2011

TIBCO made available for download the Spotfire 4.0 for its customers with a lot of new features. For example I like how Spotfire implements sparklines and KPIs:

New Sparklines and KPI in Spotfire 4.0

Some of new features defined in fuzzy terms: “”free dimensional” analytics, collective intelligence, visual and social data discovery etc, but others can be very useful and practical, like integration with TIBBR (that I like; in fact TIBCO has many other good products and they should be integrated with Spotfire) and SharePoint (good for Microsoft partners), support for dynamic icons, sparklines, stepped linecharts, pop-over filters and legends, better font management, embedded actions and more. Some features I wish will be added, but I guess we need to wait more: I wish to be able to read with Spotfire the SSAS and PowerPivot multidimensional Cubes and support for some other Data Sources…

Spotfire and its Web Player Server support  now the latest web browsers, .NET 4.0 and it dropped support for obsolete stuff like Internet Explorer 6 and Windows 2003 Server. I mentioned on this blog earlier that I like Spotfire Silver 2.0 and the wealth and depth of Spotfire Analytical Platform (S-Plus, Miner, S+FinMetrics, Spotfire Developer/API, Statistics, Data and Automation Services, Metrics, Network Analysis, Decision Site, Clinical Graphics and more, this list should make Qliktech and Tableau worry or at least try to add similar features…).
