According to the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), TIBCO Software’s Spotfire X is the best business intelligence reporting and analytics solution right now.

Related award areas include big data reporting and analytics, big data tools and platforms, and best business intelligence platforms.
TIBCO Spotfire X is an AI-driven analytics solution that features native language processing, machine learning recommendations, and model-based authoring. Released in Q3 2018, the product makes use of augmented analytics, a growing feature trend in the data analytics marketplace that enables users to utilize artificial intelligence to simplify the decision making process. Spotfire X includes native support for real-time, streaming data from any source, and the Data Streams module extends the platform with 80 streaming sources out of the box.
SIIA judges note that Spotfire X is the only streaming business intelligence platform that enables “any and all users to perform complete visual analytics on streaming data, not just visualize as “view-only” moving charts.” The other finalist in the best business intelligence reporting and analytics solution category was PRO Unlimited’s Wand Discovery product.
