Smart Analytics – data visualization works smarter so you don’t have to

At TIBCO, we believe just visualizing data isn’t enough. Embedded deep in the brains of data scientists lies a knowledge set that can truly benefit any one of us who has ever struggled with the dilemma of which graph to choose for a given data set. How many times have you highlighted a data set in Excel, selected Insert Chart and ended up with nonsense? You try a different chart, play with the axes, change the numerous options – before you know it, you’ve wasted an hour and haven’t made any progress. You certainly haven’t gotten anywhere near insight or understanding. Imagine if your software knew what you needed to see, even if you didn’t?

We have mined the data in the data scientists’ brains and shared what they know about visualizations: all the arcane rules about using measures on density plots, when to use aggregations and how to use time series correctly. Spotfire will automatically examine your data and recommend the best visualizations for it. Allowing our algorithm to choose the correct visualization will let you focus on what you know best – your business.

When you took your driving test, they didn’t ask you to explain the principles of the internal combustion engine – you just trust it works. Whereas your grandparents may have been a dab hand with a spanner and an oil can, life has moved on. So it will be for the future of analytics – it will work smarter, so you don’t have to.
