Headlining our news at Teradata Partners this week is that WhereScape is the first data warehouse automation vendor to extend support of its platform to include Hadoop (HDFS) and Hive native connectors. The WhereScape RED Big Data release leverages our 12 years of experience and expertise in automating data warehouse development for more than 700 organizations worldwide. With this new release, WhereScape enables organizations to automate the development of fully documented, metadata driven Hadoop and Hive solutions consisting of big data as well as enterprise data sources as both source and target platforms.

Consider WhereScape RED the “glue” of enterprise data warehouse and big data development, containing the metadata about the enterprise data ecosystem and both IT and end-user documentation. The WhereScape RED Big Data release also eases ongoing maintenance and enhancement activities by providing code generation and data lineage capabilities.

“Many data warehousing managers are testing Hadoop, Hive and other big data platforms to build or augment their data warehouses and will also greatly benefit from big data automation capabilities such as those contained in the WhereScape RED Big Data release,” said Wayne Eckerson, founder and principal consultant of the Eckerson Group, and author of the just published research report ‘Data Warehouse Automation Tools: Product Categories and Positioning.’

If you are attending Partners this week, we invite you to visit us in the exhibit hall in booth #115. WhereScape will be showcasing the WhereScape RED Big Data release, demonstrating the loading of Hadoop and Hive data into a Teradata data warehouse, as well as moving Teradata data into Hadoop and Hive.
