There are several modules of Wherescape but the overall message is it Speeds your ability to get value from your data whether it's in your Data Warehouse, Data Lake or other applications. WhereScape provides Data Automation, self documentation and supports the new Data Vault 2.0 standard.
The Data Warehouse Institute (TDWI) defines data warehouse automation as:
“…using technology to gain efficiencies and improve effectiveness in data warehousing processes. Data warehouse automation is much more than simply automating the development process. It encompasses all of the core processes of data warehousing including design, development, testing, deployment, operations, impact analysis, and change management.”
With automated data warehousing, IT teams can fast-track new data integration, more effectively work with big data, and devote greater time to the business intelligence initiatives that will yield the greatest impact for their organizations.
“With WhereScape, we can build a solution from the ground up in an hour,” says Magalsky. “That enables us to move right to prototype and deliver it to the users quickly so they can see the data and visualize it. If a picture is worth a thousand words, a prototype is worth a million.”
