We are thrilled to have one of our newer customers, Dan Mosher from United Rentals (NYSE: URI), with us at the recent Teradata Partners User Group conference in Washington DC.
While he was there Dan very kindly sat down with Mark Budzinski, WhereScape's Sales and Operations VP for North America and Shaun Rogers from the b-eye-network to record a podcast.
Some of the great quotes include:
"WhereScape promised a lot and the product has delivered. We are very happy with the amount of time it is saving us in development, as well as the documentation it is producing and the built-in scheduler. I am very happy with the purchase."
"We estimate the development lifecycle is 20-25% of what it was previously when we were hand-coding."
"WhereScape also gives us the ability to utilize people who are not necessarily programmers, but people who are familiar with our data. The majority of my staff has been with the company for at least 10 years so they are very familiar with where the data is coming from, and with their knowledge of SQL, knowing what they want to achieve. It has been a good fit for us."
"We always do documentation, but as most people find, we would make a change but often fail to go back to fix the documentation everywhere. The ability to click a button and have it generate a web page that is reflective of our data warehouse has been great for us."
