SOMERVILLE, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/07/12 -- TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ: TIBX) today announced TIBCO Spotfire® 4.5, the latest version of its analytics platform that builds upon its groundbreaking visualization-based data discovery and collaboration capabilities to now encompass all types of extreme information, including big data. With the introduction of the newest version of its in-memory analytics platform, Spotfire® continues to advance "dimension-free" data exploration for structured and unstructured information, while providing new predictive analytics capabilities and the ability to create private-branded Spotfire analytics solutions for the iPad® mobile digital device. Together, the new capabilities allow organizations to leverage all types of data to discover and predict business outcomes and deliver insights to a wider community.
"With these advancements, Spotfire has clearly established itself as the visualization-based data discovery platform for every data type that organizations leverage for invaluable insight," said Lars Bauerle, vice president of product strategy at TIBCO Spotfire. "We're now allowing organizations to pull back the curtain on every data type, regardless of volume, variety, velocity or complexity."
Ranked as one of the easiest to use business intelligence (BI) platforms in the market by a leading analyst firm, Spotfire delivers on TIBCO's vision for the two-second advantage -- where a little bit of information at the right time is more valuable than all the data in the world after the fact.
Spotfire 4.5 allows organizations to:
- Discover actionable insights in big data: With Spotfire 4.5, the power of in-memory analytics is coupled with the ability to access and combine new data types. Spotfire offers a new application data service (ADS) connector to Apache Hadoop, where organizations can seamlessly mashup big data with data from enterprise applications, including those from salesforce.com, Oracle, SAP and others.
- Gain a unified view to structured data and unstructured content: The TIBCO Spotfire® analytics platform has achieved the highest level of information access available within Attivio's Active Intelligence Engine (AIE).
