SOMERVILLE, Mass. -- Spotfire, a leading provider of analytics software, today announced the immediate availability of Spotfire DXP (Spotfire Data Experience), a newly architected analytics offering that sets a new standard for interacting with information. Spotfire, long recognized as providing analytic applications that exemplify best in class human/computer interaction, has broken through the glass ceiling that has limited the business impact of analytics to a small group of experts, with an enterprise analytics solution that enables all key business professionals to author and share analytic results.

"Reporting and dashboarding software often falls short in providing true decision support functionality for business professionals," said Dan Vesset, research director for IDC. "Decision makers at all levels of an organization require easy-to-use, interactive tools for investigating data. Software like Spotfire DXP is what will extend the reach of business analytics adoption to users previously underserved by the business intelligence market."

Spotfire DXP makes analysis business-friendly, embodying the way that business professionals want to experience and share their data. With Spotfire DXP, all users are more confident in working with data--rapidly converting new insights into competitive advantages for their business.

"Spotfire DXP allows me to ask and answer questions on demand, pulling information from multiple data sources and integrating new information as it becomes available," said Eddy van Hamersveld, national sales manager at Yakult Nederland B.V., "Spotfire DXP now creates immediacy between my question and the visual response. With Spotfire DXP, specific marketing and sales analyses have become much easier; market share and trend analyses are now available to all of us. Using Spotfire gives us the ability to do things like promotional analysis in a far superior way than was possible before."

"As a Sales Force Effectiveness Manager, new information flies at me daily representing potential new threats and opportunities," said Wilbert Beumer at Boehringer Ingelheim. "Spotfire DXP gives me an immediate response mechanism to new data as it emerges. I'll never go back to spending hours interpreting data in spreadsheets or pouring through mountains of reports. With Spotfire DXP, I can ask my own questions and get the answers that I need."
