TIBCO Spotfire to Offer Unmatched Combination of In-Database Processing and In-Memory Analytics for Agile Business Teams & IT 
Spotfire 5.5 Unleashes Unified Data Access of 30+ Data Sources for
Self-Service Analytics; Adds Management-by-Exception Visualization
Techniques for Business Users 
PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/18/13 --  TIBCO Software Inc.
(NASDAQ: TIBX) today announced the latest version of its data
discovery and visualization platform, TIBCO Spotfire(R) 5.5, which
dramatically increases the value of existing corporate data assets.
With Spotfire(R) 5.5, enterprises not only maximize corporate
investment through a unified approach to simultaneously work with
data in-memory and directly query a wide variety of data systems and
engines, but users now have the best of both worlds: self-service
analytics plus central data access management. Spotfire 5.5 also
integrates with Teradata Aster, TIBCO DataSynapse GridServer(R) and
TIBCO BusinessEvents(TM), giving users the ability to use predictive
analytics for real-time events and big data insights. And finally but
significantly, Spotfire 5.5 offers a new set of visualization and
analysis capabilities to manage the business by exception, and
deliver fast, powerful and contextual insights to business users. 
"Competition, productivity and innovation all depend on how
enterprises make important information immediately available to
knowledge professionals, yet companies must simultaneously control
access to sensitive data. The Spotfire enterprise-class data
discovery platform recognizes that data is a corporate asset which
needs to be secured, while at the same time, providing instant
self-service analytics to support the competitive, agile
organization," said Lou Jordano head of worldwide product marketing
for TIBCO.  
Expansive, Flexible, Managed Data Access 
In today's information-centric business climate, integrating and
taking advantage of information in all corporate data sources is
critical to corporate productivity, revenue growth, cost cutting and
risk reduction. With Spotfire 5.5, enterprise users are now able to
leverage the analytic processing power of virtually any corporate
data source, warehouse, or big data engine and take it to the next
level of analytics by post processing the results in Spo
proprietary high performance in-memory engine.  
Spotfire 5.5 now opens up over 30 data sources to this new hybrid
approach. Analytic data warehouses, data bases, No-SQL sources, web
services and applications are all accessible through a common layer
with complete flexibility. Now users can mash together data from all
these sources, whether data is in-memory or in-database, to perform
comprehensive analysis like never before. Spotfire 5.5's hybrid
approach enables enterprises to centrally control data access and
models, while still providing immediate self-service analytics to
business users across the organization. Now enterprise users have the
ability to manage access to all data sources, no matter whether they
are conducting in-memory analysis, in-database analysis, or both. 
Quick, Powerful, Contextual Visual Analysis 
Spotfire 5.5 offers many new visualization and analysis enhancements
that compress time to insight, deliver powerful yet easy analytics
and enhance visual context.  
Most significantly, a new analysis concept to "visually manage by
exception" automatically puts forward the KPIs, signals, and data
that matters most and needs action. With Spotfire 5.5 dashboards,
analytic applications and data discovery, users can immediately find
the exceptions in the business through dynamic rule-based filters and
Quick business calculations like year-over-year and cumulative sum
are easily available. The software easily joins multiple data sets
right in the visualizations with drag-and-drop, comparing subsets of
data directly in the same visualization without having to regroup the
data. A number of ease of use capabilities, like a full featured
expression editor, a new welcome page, and more visual depth, are
included in this release; all making it faster to find actionable
Real-Time & Big Data Predictive Analytics  
Spotfire 5.5 provides functionality to quickly and easily extract
insights out of the noise of big data by leveraging Teradata Aster to
do in-database predictive analytics. This capability adds Teradata
Aster to Spotfire's existing statistics ecosystem.  
Through integration with TIBCO DataSynapse GridServer and TIBCO
BusinessEvents, Spotfire 5.5 predictive analytics also enables
enterprises to scale TIBCO(R) Enterprise Runtime for R modeling to
massively-parallel, real-time applications, such as fraud detection
or in-store offers.  
"Bringing together Spotfire and Teradata Aster for in-database,
big-data predictive analytics means the important business variables,
such as web site or store visits, can be changed without code
modification, and that sophisticated analytic processes are completed
in one pass," said Mayank Bawa, co-president Teradata Aster. "By
integrating Teradata Aster into Spotfire 5.5, we are making the
advanced analytics power of SQL-MapReduce Discovery Portfolio
available to non-statistical business users through Spotfire analytic
