Smart data from big data: Free trial of powerful data visualization software


The TIBCO Spotfire® software platform provides users with powerful data visualization tools

Ever get the feeling that when it comes to reviewing data sets, you’re “missing something”? One of the most frustrating experiences a researcher can have is to worry that a data pattern or trend will go unnoticed. 

The analysis of traditional data reports can seem non-scalable and unwieldy – but there is a method available to allow you to interact with data in an intuitive way. Data visualization uses graphical representations of information to allow researchers to manipulate data and uncover trends or outliers that would otherwise be difficult to detect using traditional reporting methods. 

It’s why at PerkinElmer Informatics, we are so excited that we have entered into a strategic relationship with TIBCO Software Inc., enabling us to offer the TIBCO Spotfire® software platform to our customers in certain scientific research and development markets. These markets include R&D; QA; and QC applications in basic and preclinical life sciences; chemical, petrochemical, and environmental sciences; food and beverage; consumer products; and academia.

The TIBCO Spotfire software platform allows scientific researchers in these markets to analyze and understand data in a fundamentally natural and interactive manner, changing the way trends in experimental data sets are recognized.

While data visualization sounds like an attractive solution in theory, it’s hard to ‘visualize’ the benefits of data visualization without having the experience of using the software to delve into information sets.

So we are providing you with the opportunity to take control firsthand and see how the TIBCO Spotfire software platform works from a user’s perspective. We’ve put a fun holiday twist on the experience as well – you can explore data we’ve compiled about Santa’s naughty and nice lists. The software allows you to move through data using pie charts, bar graphs, data plots and graphical representations, with the ability to toggle various selection options to isolate and compare information.

We’ve also created a few questions to challenge your ability to manipulate the data using the visualization methods – if you submit correct answers to all the questions asked, you will be entered to win a free iPad® mini.
