Infrastructure software provider TIBCO has unveiled the latest version of its analytics platform, delivering expanded data access, greater predictive analytics and mobile capabilities.
The newest version of its in-memory analytics platform, TIBCO Spotfire 4.5 boasts a new application data service connect to Apache Hadoop, enabling users to mash up Big Data with data from enterprise apps such as Salesforce.com and Oracle.
This, the vendor claims, will enable enhanced discovery of actionable insights from Big Data.
Elsewhere, the new tool features a deployment kit for the iPad, so enterprises and third parties can customise and brand their Spotfire mobile applications for distribution via iTunes.
Spotfire 4.5 also has an expanded portfolio of pre-packaged predictive methods to help anticipate business outcomes based on “data at rest” and “data in motion”.
“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 organisations to pull back the curtain on every data type, regardless of volume, variety, velocity or complexity.”
