Pros
"I can't name the features the way the Knowage community calls them because I still don't know the lingo. However, I can describe them. I like the ability to join more than one report, set all fields on one end, and replicate that on the other reports. I like that a lot. I think it's one of the features that got me using Knowage. They have tables, and I like that too. They took SQL scripts and many other scripts and enabled them to even correlate with Python. That's also one of the best things about Knowage. You could also decide to get information per user role, and this is also a feature that I like in Knowage.""We can easily do our own customizations.""The embedding feature is great."

More Knowage Pros →

"This solution allows us to integrate data from across all client departments, for effective reporting via a single dashboard.""It's scalable.""Spotfire is excellent for scientific applications, especially because of its integration with RNG.""The out-of-the-box features are simple and easy to use across the board.""The two features that I have found most valuable are its ability to customize the dashboards when it comes to the evaluation. The second feature is its ability to handle a large amount of data, which is also something very unique about it.""The ability to create a real-time data mark, using just one piece of software, is the best feature of this product.""It’s stable and straightforward.""From a scalability standpoint, I would say it's pretty fantastic."

Cons
"It would be better if more resources were available to help us learn how to use it. I wanted to use Knowage for a more extended period, but learning materials around the product were not really available and were not really straightforward. I've also seen inconsistencies between versions. For example, under the tools, especially in the cockpit, the way you create reports is now different. You will also find some configurations within a particular state, like a line chart, which differs from version to version. I think consistency is an essential feature in a product, especially for business intelligence products.""The only challenge here is that it's a Java-based platform. It requires very high technical skills.""The dashboard components could be better."

More Knowage Cons →

"I would like to see the visualization library in this solution expanded, so that I can increase what I can offer to our clients.""We would like to see some improvement in the default properties of the solution, so that there is less need for us to spend our time coding.""When it comes to data manipulation, there are features which are good, but one of the features which has really been missing in Spotfire is an offline ability for data manipulation.""Personalising Spotfire, as a whole, is painful and is something that could be made easier.""When you do the data loading, it is slow.""The initial setup of TIBCO Spotfire is in the middle range of difficulty. The initial setup of Power BI is easier.""The initial setup can be difficult.""The design of the UI could be improved."
