A busy week for the WhereScape Europe team kicked off on Thursday 29th September. WhereScape Europe hosted a breakfast workshop in central London, and the venue for this auspicious event was the Penthouse of New Zealand Embassy. What a venue it was, with fantastic views over London, as the photos below prove.
We were just putting the finishing touches to the room as our guests began to arrive. The guests got stuck into their breakfast and engaged in a little networking before the main event. Rob Mellor, UK Country Manager Manager, got the event underway with an excellent Agile Data Warehousing presentation. This was was seamlessly followed by the always reliable Terry Mooney, demonstrating an end to end Data Mart built in only 45 minutes. After a short coffee break our esteemed guest speakers took to the stage for their presentations. First up was Lawrence Corr with an introduction to his new book “Agile Data Warehouse Design - from Whiteboard to Star Schema” (available now in all good book shops and online book retailers!). The final presentation was by Shawn Lewis, BI Manager, at Vodafone. He gave a inspiring account of how Vodafone are utilising RED globally to enhance their data warehousing approach.
The event was drawn to a successful close with most attendees staying behind to network with each other and WhereScape staff. Overall the morning was a great success, capped off by the team and some guests venturing out onto the busy streets of London for a well earned lunch and a couple of drinks to celebrate.
