"The most valuable part of the solution is the ease-of-use and ease of deployment."
"Good performance and reliability."
"The high availability, tolerance, and load balancing features are top-notch. Its scalability features are also pretty cool."
"Areas for improvement would be the cloud fitness of the product and the ease of migrating to newer versions."
"One of the most valuable features is that it's a simple development. It takes a short time to get services to work."
"One of the most valuable features is data transformation. We have some legacy systems which are in old technology, like SOAP, whereas the new ones are in REST. So we use BusinessWorks to transform data from one format to another, from SOAP to REST."
"The most valuable features are the stability and the time to market."
"The most important thing is that it is easy for developers to work with."
"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."
"From a scalability standpoint, I would say it's pretty fantastic."
"Spotfire is excellent for scientific applications, especially because of its integration with RNG."
"Its price can be improved. For medium enterprises, it is a very expensive tool. In the market, you won't get many resources for this solution. You won't find many developers in the market very easily. The latest version of TIBCO (6.4 or 6.x) is not very stable. It has got many issues. We have raised this with TIBCO, and they are taking a lot of time to come up with a fix, which is making us move away from this product. Some of the performance-tuning aspects are also missing in version 6. They should provide performance-related fixes, which will be helpful for the customers. If you are migrating from the current version to the container-supported version, it is quite expensive. The product has evolved, but it is very pricey. That's one of the challenges. They have provided all the features that are there in other products, but this is a platform upgrade. The platform has completely been changed from 5.x to 6.x, and we can't use the same environment. We can't run both versions on the same server as VM. The development environment is entirely different. In version 5.x, there was a proprietary designer. Now, it has common plug-ins developed on top of Eclipse."
"Cloud fitness is lacking"
"This solution's cloud could be improved. I don't know whether it was because we didn't have the internal expertise or if it was the product itself, but since they came later—I think only two or three years into the cloud—after many other iPaaS that had been in the cloud for longer, I feel that maybe they haven't matured in terms of the cloud."
"The cost of this product is too expensive for smaller companies or those with a small number of integrations."
"Could be more user friendly in the development area."
"The Business Studio tool can be improved, which is the tool for designing the processes. Improving the Business Studio tool will make this solution more stable. It has a steep learning curve, and it is pretty tough to learn."
"There are not many plugins available to integrate the databases. We have to write it in Java and integrate it. The developers should have more knowledge. These are the three main aspects that they could improve."
"The container-based image is too large and this makes auto-scaling difficult."
"Personalising Spotfire, as a whole, is painful and is something that could be made easier."
"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."
"The handling and consumption of realtime data could be improved."
"The design of the UI could be improved."
