Spotfire was a business intelligence company based in Somerville, Massachusetts. It was bought by TIBCO in 2007.

History[edit]

Spotfire's origins trace back to the Human-Computer Interaction Laboratory at the University of Maryland, College Park where, in the early 1990s, Christopher Ahlberg, a visiting student from Sweden, worked with Ben Shneiderman to develop applications of dynamic queries. Ahlberg returned to Sweden and developed an enhanced UNIX implementation of his visual data analysis tool, the Information Visualization and Exploration Environment (IVEE). Spotfire was launched in mid-1996 by IVEE Development, which was renamed Spotfire Inc.[1]

On May 2, 2007 it was announced that TIBCO would buy the company.[2][3]
