Introducing “Smart" Data Discovery – Making Analytics Easier & Faster for Everyone
The Spotfire 7 release was specifically designed to make analytics even easier to use and drive faster insights than ever before, through a built-in analytics recommendations engine and many beautiful, streamlined user interface features. Highlights include:
Recommendations is a “smart" wizard, designed to make it very easy & fast for everyone to get started with analytics. Spotfire 7 guides users to make best-practice visualization choices for their data, driven by an intelligent analytics recommendation engine embedded under the hood. Everyone – even an analytics newcomer – can create a whole dashboard of interconnected, interactive visualizations in just a few seconds. To see how fast it is, check out this video. The preliminary insights you get into your data via Recommendations gives you a jumpstart into your analysis.
Dark Color Scheme
Spotfire 7 introduces a new Dark visual design scheme, giving you the option to choose whether you'd like the traditional “light" color scheme, or a new “dark" look & feel.
In addition, in Spotfire 7 you can take the Spotfire design even further. Give your analytics workspace your own look and feel, with new Custom Style options. Change colors, fonts, margins, spacing, etc., to match your corporate, personal or web page design goals.
Faster Data Exploration
A new Data Panel in Spotfire 7 streamlines how you find, organize and filter your data in your analytics workspace. Search for the data you are looking for. Organize your data by type (e.g., time, number, location, category). Rename or delete columns. Filter data into and out of your visualizations. Easily keep track of which filters are turned on. The Data Panel is an authoring feature and can be found in both in the Business Author web client and the Analyst desktop client.
Easy Category Grouping
Spotfire 7 delivers two new ways to quickly group and analyze your data. Dynamically group items directly within your visualization while exploring the data, or create a more powerful group by adding new columns of data on-the-fly, right within Spotfire. There are no delays to finding your insights, and no need to make changes in the data source or spreadsheet. All the power is right at your fingertips in the Spotfire analytics software. Use groups to:
- Compare “like" categories, e.g., group Apples, Bananas and Melons into “Fruits" to compare next to Meat, Dairy and Bakery
- Compare “most important" with “the rest," e.g., “Top 5 Performers" with “Others"
- Combine misspelled or misnamed categories, e.g., group “HQ" and “Headquarters," or “Tomatos" and “Tomatoes"
Create Map Visualization in Business Author
Spotfire 7 makes it possible for you to create a map chart in the Business Author web client. Users can select to create map charts with either one marker layer or one feature (shape) layer.
Quick Configurations in Business Author
New usability is being introduced to the Business Author web client in order to make it faster and easier to configure visualizations. To quickly make tweaks to the look/feel of a visualization, the user doesn't need to open properties, they just need to drag/drop items from the data panel onto the visualization, or make a single (left) click on either the x- or y-axis.
Mark from Legend
Spotfire 7 allows you to mark elements in your visualizations by clicking on categories in the legend. This is especially useful in plots with many graphical elements and lets the user compare the marked category with the others. Mark from Legend works for the color and shape axis for categorical and binned columns.
Quick Calculation – Top Category
Spotfire 7 offers a new Quick Calculation, “Top Category," which allows you the ability to identify the “top" item of a particular category. For example, in a data set of baby names, it might be interesting to find out which baby name was the most popular in each state. No longer do you need to write the expression, just choose the “Top Category" quick calculation, and Spotfire automatically performs the calculation for you.
Custom Expressions that Nest Aggregations
Spotfire 7 empowers you to write custom expressions that embed an aggregation method within the calculation. This enables very powerful analytic expressions and a further augmentation of your data during analysis.
And Much More
There are a ton of other new features in Spotfire 7, including:
- In-memory cube data analytics
- Create new calculated columns & groups when doing in-database analysis
- Even more script language functions
- Support for curve / contour functions, non-linear optimization, and additional R packages
