Edit Data Transformations
Spotfire 7.9 adds what has been one of the most anticipated new time-saving features, the ability to edit your data transformations. You can adapt to changes in data sources or tweak new transformations without having to start from scratch.
Data Preparation Indicators
Now, whenever a data preparation step has encountered a problem in the data source view, Spotfire will notify you with one of several severity-ranked indicators. The indicators enable quick troubleshooting of data transformations, and when paired with the new edit transformation feature, drastically reduce your time to analysis.
Load more Data from Salesforce
The native Salesforce.com connector for Spotfire is now able to load more data, such as the Case Table, which often keeps millions of records.
Improved Kerberos Integration
Spotfire Information Services now supports constrained Kerberos delegation in combination with compatible JDBC drivers.
Spotfire Cloud Data Access
Data from Amazon Redshift, Azure SQL, and OData can now be viewed in Spotfire Cloud Business Author and Consumer.
Inline Data Cleaning
Issues in your data are most often found once you start visualizing it, so why not fix them right then and there? Spotfire now has new “replace value” and “replace all occurrences” features for easily cleaning up erroneous data values in table charts and the details-on-demand panel.
In Spotfire 7.9 99% of packages on CRAN―almost 10,000 community packages―can be loaded into the built-in R engine. We’ve also made significant improvements to the engine’s performance and to ease of use for creating graphics.
Connectors and Live Query Tables
Microsoft Azure HDInsight, APACHE KNOX, SAP SSO, and Google Analytics Web Authentication are all now supported.
Location Analytics Update
You can now right-click anywhere on a map and get geographic coordinates (latitude and longitude) for a location. Nautical miles have also been added as a unit of measurement in addition to the existing imperial and metric units when using radius and rectangle selections.
New Data Source Versions
Analysis Services 2016; PostgreSQL 9.5 and 9.6; MySQL 5.7; SAP BW 7.5; and Apache Spark SQL 2.0 are now supported.
