Wednesday, September 10th, the Business Intelligence webinar featured WhereScape VP Rick Smith and his presentation “Getting the Backend Right and the Foundation Solid”.
In a brief, dynamic mode this presentation focused on some of the very important points of Data Warehousing development that many DW practitioners have to deal with on a daily basis. The first few slides of the presentation raised the issue of why Data Warehousing efforts fall short so consistently. The rest of the presentation showed the audience how to deal with these failures. The Approach is needed! The WhereScape RED Approach!The Approach combines these crucial concepts:
1. Agile data warehousing development
2. Integrated Development Environment
3. Design-through-Deploy technique
4. Prototype and Iterate tactic
The WhereScape presentation in conjunction with CIBER’s Global Enterprise Integration Practice, Front-End presentation by Strategy Companion and the Case Study: BNP Paribas, where WhereScape played major role in training/development effort, painted a holistic picture for Data Warehousing users.
This webinar is another step for WhereScape toward global acknowledgement of our state-of-the-art Methodology and Practice.
