Getting Started with Your Trial

With your trial, you get both TIBCO Cloud Data Streams and a TIBCO Spotfire trial. You can share your streaming analysis with your team as your free trial includes 2 Analyst, 2 Business Author, and 2 Consumer roles for TIBCO Spotfire.

You can choose to get started with the sample dataset that has been provided within TIBCO Cloud Data Streams, or you can also decide to simply start with your own data!

Bonus Step: We want you to have a successful trial! In order to do that please take our 1-minute pre-trial survey. Seriously, it's just 1 minute—we timed it. Your responses will be used confidentially to ensure you have everything you need during the trial period.
