Tibco Software has launched a business intelligence tool which will give users free access to cloud-based reporting and analytics for the first year of use.
The Saas product, called Tibco Silver Spotfire is a fully functional on-demand serviced designed to enable anyone to create, publish and share custom dashboards or reports for business analytics and business intelligence.
Tibco describes the tool as a "social BI" offering that enables business teams to build and share business intelligence in order to grow a corporate analytics knowledge base. It can be integrated with social media, allowing users to embed live dashboards into blogs.
Rock Gnatovich, Spotfire chief operating officer, Tibco Software, said, "We have now made it possible for anyone to analyse information and uncover compelling new insights from any data - whether for assignments at work, such as sales and marketing reviews, budgeting and planning or project management, as well as projects at home, such as reviewing personal stock portfolios or analysing fantasy sports teams."
