Spotfire is a broad, general-purpose analytics offering that encompasses data visualisation, business intelligence, analytics and data preparation; running against historic and/or real-time data.
From a time-series perspective Spotfire works on the basis of time windows (various options) that you define. Specifically, it provides high level operators called Aggregate, Pattern, Join, Query and Gather, which can be combined and sequenced as required. Some 58 aggregate functions are built into the product, including both basic analytical functions (mean, median, standard deviation and so on) and more advanced statistical functions (slope, intercept, correlation, exponential moving average and so forth).
