New Spotfire DXP Developer and Spotfire Technology Network web site allow Developers to customize and extend the Spotfire enterprise analytics platform
SOMERVILLE, Mass., May 14 -- Spotfire, Inc. (http://www.spotfire.com/), the Information Insight Company(SM), today announced Spotfire DXP Developer and Spotfire Technology Network, new tools to allow developers to extend the Spotfire DXP 2.0 enterprise analytics platform for next generation business intelligence. Spotfire DXP Developer allows customers and partners to fully customize the Spotfire DXP enterprise analytics platform to meet the unique business processes and analytic needs of any enterprise and give everyone the ability to quickly discover new insights in the information they work with each day.
"XOMETRIX selected Spotfire DXP as the technology behind our LoyaltyMETRIX product because it was clearly the best enterprise-ready analytical tool available," said Michael Aarons, Managing Partner of XOMETRIX. "DXP provides the real-time analytical capability, knowledge transfer, and analytical process awareness that our clients require. Most importantly, DXP places these capabilities squarely in the hands of non-technical businesspeople. With DXP 2.0, Spotfire has made analytics a reality for the entire enterprise, not just for a select few."
With the release of Spotfire DXP 2.0, Spotfire is releasing a complete set of application programming interfaces (APIs) for not only configuring and automating the platform, but also extending it with entirely new capabilities. The APIs, which support custom application development, "mash-ups" and other integration, are used to create custom Spotfire DXP Extensions. Extensions are compiled, licensable code packages that, from the end users perspective, are virtually indistinguishable from the core Spotfire DXP product. Extensions enable such functions as:
-- Import data from custom files, databases and web services -- Export data to a range of formats and locations -- Add automated, custom calculations and statistical methods -- Display custom data visualizations
Spotfire DXP Developer offers access to the Spotfire DXP Software Development Kit (SDK), which enables developers and technologists to turn the Spotfire DXP enterprise analytics platform into a fully customized application for any type of business user. The SDK includes:
-- Assemblies necessary to compile and debug custom extensions in Microsoft Visual Studio 2005, -- A full set of example code, written in Microsoft's C#, that demonstrates each of the extension types that can be built and shows developers and technologists how to use the API for custom automation and integration projects.
"We're helping our clients achieve real revenue growth by using data- driven sales and marketing analytics that allows them to compete in today's IT marketplace", said Carlos Blanco, Managing Director of Next Level. "Our Channelytics(R) offering, powered by the Spotfire DXP 2.0 enterprise analytics platform, enables Next Level to provide a full range of actionable recommendations that deliver competitive insight at a speed and adaptability that traditional BI cannot."
Free Online Resource
The Spotfire Technology Network is a freely available online resource that provides a wealth of information to developers and technologists on how to begin using and take full advantage of the Spotfire DXP SDK and API to adapt the Spotfire DXP enterprise analytics platform to their business - not vice versa. The website offers an opportunity for developers and technologists to view a collation of articles and whitepapers in order to learn how the platform works, how to build applications with the APIs and how to extend the product across the enterprise effectively.
Spotfire DXP Developer, the related APIs and Spotfire Technology Network will be publicly available in June. For more information, visit http://www.spotfire.com/.
