"The ability to create a real-time data mark, using just one piece of software, is the best feature of this product."

"Spotfire is excellent for scientific applications, especially because of its integration with RNG."

A lot of other things are also not at the same level. Their technical support is not perfect and could be better. It takes a lot of time to have lacking functionalities implemented.
