April 1, 2008 - Spotfire, a division of TIBCO Software Inc., announced the newest version of its flagship software, TIBCO Spotfire 2.1, to help customers and partners create visual and interactive business adapted mashups.


This latest release includes new application programming interfaces (APIs) that enable analytic and pervasive business intelligence (BI) application development.


TIBCO Spotfire 2.1 also offers new analytic capabilities and usability enhancements that make it easier for business professionals to find insights in any information.


“The TIBCO Spotfire enterprise analytics platform continues to evolve, putting more power into the hands of our analytics team and allowing us to cut time to decision, while guiding our users to more strategic insights,” said Ramona Hovey, vice president of DrillingInfo Inc’s Energy Strategy Partners. “By exploiting Web 2.0 and innovative Spotfire technologies, such as business mashups, we are looking to build a highly responsive, real-time business model to provide our clients with accelerated business innovation, growth, and collaboration.”


While consumers in a Web 2.0 world can visually explore everything from maps to music, business professionals still rely on spreadsheets and reports. The business mashup capabilities in Spotfire 2.1 merge Web 2.0 and BI into business applications that solve specific business problems. Spotfire 2.1 brings the interactive, visual nature of Web 2.0 applications to enterprise users, allowing subject matter experts to leverage standard interfaces and BI data to create user experiences that speed insights and prompt better business decisions.


With Spotfire 2.1, TIBCO is releasing an enhanced set of APIs to allow partners and customers to build analytics applications for any business process. These APIs make it easier for companies to create an integrated user experience, by customizing the user interface and even developing data visualizations for the TIBCO Spotfire Web Player. New security improvements provide better integration to existing infrastructure for internal and external use over the web.


Spotfire enhanced this version to provide deeper visual insights to business users. Spotfire 2.1 offers dynamically-drawn curve and line fits that isolate trends and patterns, allowing for interactive comparison, as well multiscale axes that make it a snap to compare trends across disparate variables.


Spotfire expanded training options by offering regional and on-site training, as well as expanding its online offerings, including on demand, Web-based training and user communities.
