Tibco has updated its business intelligence and analytics tool Spotfire to offer analysis of enterprise's big data.
Spotfire 5.0 promises to bring improved predictive analytics tools, high volume scalability, and in-database analysis. The new update will allow users to comb through Oracle databases, Teradata databases, Microsoft SQL databases, and Microsoft SQL server cubes.
"Basically, what this does at the end of the day is let business users make the best decision for their company based on the data that's currently out their," director of product marketing for the Spotfire group of Tibco Lou Jordano told V3.
Spotfire's latest update allows for business users to scan through the massive amount of data stored on their database servers and then use that data to predict market outcomes.
Prior to the update Spotfire's analytic analysis was sequestered to only in-memory searches. However, with the update users will now be able to expand their analysis using the mass quantities of data found in databases.
Along with the expanded analysis functions, users will see improvements to other functionality. Spotfire 5.0 extends Tibco's support of the R programming language by bringing Enterprise Runtime R engines inside Spotfire software. The move simplifies the R language so that it can be more appealing to a wider base.
Spotfire 5.0 will also come integrated with Tibco's Silver Fabric technology and the Spotfire Web Player. Tibco says that the Web Player can automatically scale up or down depending on user workload. While Silver Fabric offers intelligent load-balancing for optimising resources.
