CCU used WhereScape RED to develop a Microsoft SQL Server data warehouse that delivered business value in three months

Grapevine, TX – March 6, 2017 – Colorado Christian University will present a case study at the Gartner Data & Analytics Summit today that highlights the University’s successful use of WhereScape’s automation software to develop and deploy a Microsoft SQL Server data warehouse in three months that delivered immediate business value. 

Kevin McNamara, Business Intelligence Manager who proposed, designed, and managed the implementation of CCU’s SQL Server enterprise data warehouse, will present “Colorado Christian University Accelerates Data Warehouse Development with Automation” at 6:30pm CT at Gartner Data & Analytics Summit.  Using WhereScape RED, CCU delivered star schema data models with conformed dimensions on seven business processes (fact tables) with 59 dimensions of analysis in the first 90 days.  In addition, CCU utilizes WhereScape RED’s rich metadata layer to integrate its Tableau reporting environment. 

“WhereScape has enabled CCU to greatly accelerate the development of our data warehouse by automating repetitive development tasks, that not only help ensure data consistency, but also free up our small team to focus on business-level problems,” McNamara said.  “Using WhereScape RED, CCU developed and deployed a fully documented, metadata-driven data warehouse with a staff of three that is receiving high praise from University officials for its data-driven approach to reporting and analytics.”Related

“WhereScape has experienced great success in helping dozens of higher education institutions such as Colorado Christian University quickly develop, deploy and gain value from their significant investment in data warehousing, BI and advanced analytics,” added WhereScape CEO Mark Budzinski.  “CCU fits the profile of most colleges and universities large or small—namely limited IT staffing and budgets, but the same critical delivery schedules.  We are proud to be working with CCU, along with Bucknell University, Cornell University and Empire State College of New York, to name just a few, to help deliver data management solutions that improve services for students and stakeholders alike.”
