    All new features in TIBCO Spotfire® 11.4 LTS are described on this page.


    TIBCO Spotfire® 11.3

    All new features in TIBCO Spotfire® 11.3 are described on this page.

    Advanced analytics has been an integrated part of visual data discovery for many years. But often, only the data function developer or experts have been able to add it to an analytic application... we have lowered that barrier...

    Data functions become shareable assets for repurposing across an organization. This also frees up data scientists' time to focus on higher value work, spending less time on tedious lower value custom integrations and more time on developing data functions that solve complex challenges.

    Spotfire data functions typically calculate new tables and columns based on simple, or very complex, Python or R scripts, developed by analysts, data engineers or data scientists.

    With TIBCO Spotfire® 11.3, it’s much easier to add existing data functions to your analysis files. This enables you to use more advanced calculations to answer more questions in more analysis files, for the most comprehensive analysis.

    TIBCO Spotfire® 11.3 also includes a new version of the Mods framework, with more capabilities and features. All supported data sources are now listed in the flyout, and, speaking of data sources, the SharePoint connector now supports Automation Services and Scheduled Updates, and SAP HANA retrieves metadata much quicker with the use of SAP HANA Hints.


    TIBCO Spotfire® 11.2

    All new features in TIBCO Spotfire® 11.2 are described on this page.

    TIBCO Spotfire® 11.2 adds a number of highly requested features such as excluding all and none from filters, coloring cross table cells by other columns and the ability to add a default visualization when loading data. Map chart users will benefit from updated and richer worldwide map data and new data sources are also available with support for GeoJSON files, Brytlyt GPU databases and SingleStore databases.

    This release also provides an enriched documentation for mods developers and administrators may find support for Windows Server 2019 valuable.


    TIBCO Spotfire® 11.1

    All new features in TIBCO Spotfire® 10.6 are described on this page.

    TIBCO Spotfire® 10.6 adds the ability to visualize and analyze streaming data in the Spotfire web clients (Spotfire Consumer and Business Author), this is the most requested feature in streaming visual analytics since it now becomes very easy to deploy streaming visual analytics applications and dashboards to large user bases.

    In addition, TIBCO Spotfire® 10.6 adds Interactive AI, a new feature that combines visual and advanced analytics that helps you analyze your data faster and easier. Interactive AI is at the intersection of visual analytics and AI, and augments the users analytical capabilites through advanced analytical algorithms that assist the user by inline display of relationships with selected data points and other variables.

    TIBCO Spotfire® 10.6 also includes improvements in geo-analytics when using image layers and in data wrangling with Snowflake.


    TIBCO Spotfire® 10.5

    All new features in TIBCO Spotfire® 10.5 are described on this page.

    TIBCO Spotfire® 10.5 adds new data wrangling, data access and administration features. We continue to make it easier and shorten the time it takes to add, wrangle, visualize and gain insights from data. With row and column counts available in all steps of your data pipeline it's easier to see if, for example, a join has been configured correctly. This enables you to move on to your next activity more quickly. You can add data transformations directly from the data canvas wires. This makes it a bit more clear of where the transformation is added. When data is loaded into Spotfire, you will experience that visualizations and recommendations automatically selects more relevant aggregation methods when visualizing non-additive measures.


    TIBCO Spotfire® 10.4

    All new features in TIBCO Spotfire® 10.4 are described on this page.

The connector uses Google's APIs, so you don't even need to install a driver, and you sign in with your Google account in your web browser. TIBCO Spotfire® 10.4 also introduces native support for ComputeDB, the TIBCO in-memory analytics database. Based on Apache Spark and Apache Geode, it delivers high throughput, low latency, and high concurrency for unified analytic workloads.

    As a TIBCO Cloud™ Spotfire user you can now refresh data directly from your TIBCO Data Virtualization instances in the web client. In fact, thanks to new mechanisms in the data loading framework, data can now be refreshed directly from the Data menu of the Consumer and Business Author web clients. If a data refresh fails, the previous data is kept for the failed source.

    New time saving features are also available. Keyboard shortcuts and search can now be used to quickly add visualizations, and Open from the File menu is back.

    Administrators and Authors will appreciate that the user action log now collects visual analytics actions and Developers that the C# API allows IronPython scripts and C# extensions to access user information.

    Note that TIBCO Spotfire® 10.4 is a mainstream version. Fixes to critical issues discovered after the release will only be made to the most current version and to long-term supported versions.

On the data access side, you are now able to provide Azure SQL access to users without giving them access to the master database. As a SAP HANA user you are probably planning to upgrade to SAP HANA 2. If so, you will appreciate that the Spotfire connector for SAP HANA now supports the latest SAP HANA version. The in-memory data engine of Spotfire now includes the functions lag and lead in its function library.

    TIBCO Spotfire® 10.2 finally adds a new modern and public REST API for upload of Spotfire Binary Data Format files (SBDF files) directly to Spotfire library. This allows you to integrate your application directly with the Spotfire eco system. Combined with the open source Java and C# libraries for reading and writing sbdf, you have everything you need to push data from your applications into Spotfire, for visual data discovery and advanced analytics.

    TIBCO Spotfire® 10.0

    All new features in TIBCO Spotfire® 10.0 are described on this page.

    TIBCO Spotfire® 10.0 represents a major mark in the evolution of Business Intelligence and Analytics tools. For the first time, a product covers all the four main paradigms of interaction with BI data, while at the same time providing the full capabilities of a modern BI platform. Spotfire 10 includes all consumption of BI information through dashboards, add-hoc visual analytics, canned analytic apps, predictive analytics, mobile apps, static reports and web portal mashups. With TIBCO Spotfire® 10 you no longer have to be restricted to one interaction paradigm, such as direct manipulation. With TIBCO Spotfire® 10 you can analyze your data using search, automatic insights or direct manipulation, or even modify and build your application using a workflow-based approach. The fact is that each of these user interface paradigms have their own merits and drawbacks, so you should be free to choose the one that works best for the task at hand.

    But TIBCO Spotfire® 10 does not stop at providing a state of the art user experience for BI and Analytics; Spotfire 10 pushes the border of BI by letting you analyze streaming data from dozens of streaming data sources such as Kafka, MQTT, Salesforce Streaming, WITS, OsiPi and many Capital Market Exchanges, and of course other TIBCO Technologies such as FTL and EMS. With Spotfire 10, you can build real-time dashboards just as easily as you build dashboards based on static data, and Spotfire, in fact, lets you mashup streaming and historic data to give you a view both of what's happening now and how that compares with what happened historically, or it lets you bring in static data as context to the streaming data.
