October 21, 2011 - Mercedes-Benz World, Brooklands, on the site of the world’s first professional motor sport race track, was the historic setting for the WhereScape RED product test drive.
Situated in the top floor of the AMG suite, eight hand picked delegates, representing WhereScape Europes’s prospects and business partners, were set the challenge of completing a section of the WhereScape RED Enterprise Data Warehouse training course in only 90mins.
Some healthy competition surfaced as the attendees fuelled by breakfast, and the prospect of winning podium prizes, started to build a data mart from scratch. During the product test drive Senior Business Managers connected with their technical roots, and Technical Managers discovered how their teams could design and build data warehouses 10 to 100 times faster.
As the finishing line drew near, the pit crew of Terry Mooney and Paul Watson-Gover (Senior WhereScape Consultants) ensured that all drivers were prepared for their final exercise. Source tables were loaded, 3NF structures were linked and populated, all ready for a final dimensional transformation and cube generation.
At the chequered flag Richard Noble, Head of Consulting, declared a dead heat, and all attendees were treated to an AMG test drive round the Mercedes-Benz World test track.
The real result – WhereScape RED delivered with great speed, agility and ease... much like the race tuned Mercedes AMG!
